Some of the sights, from the Hope Ward Fun Run 2012.
RT @davisthedoc: Hospital Health IT Use Climbs, But Will Health IT Worker Supply Keep Up? http://t.co/IKsox06W
This reading is very interesting for me, because my University has asked me to consider writing a course for Health and Technology. Something that our students can leave with, in regard to incorporating the latest technology trends, devices and applications, into the eeffective day-to-day work of Nurses, Doctors and other Public Health Professionals.
Its quite an exciting topic and am excited to be working with Eunice Namirembe, and Olivia Nanteza. Together, we hope to draft and deliver a course that will train the 21st century health practitioner to apply and incorporate technology in their work.
I would like to, starting with myself; and my workplace, volunteer (and thereby source) services, skill and time, from people who would like to put their massive experience around ICTs to form a team that is willing to offer pro-bono ICT Audit services, as a way for the ICT community to develop each other.
Whereas I know this is probably someone’s bread and butter, I can only look at the ICT Community and more so our own LUG to find persons who I know will willingly and happily give of 2 half-day Saturdays, to work together to help me review the ICT structure, functions and systems here at IHSU.
Ideally, those people would have shared experiences spread among ICT functions, vital for a University such as Wireless Systems, Websites/Intranets, Server Administration, Networking and Administration.
I would like to do a strategic plan for IHSU’s ICT Department for the next few years, and a comprehensive ICT Audit would go a long way in providing rich input for a document and plan of this nature. For that, I need Alex Kisakye to lead a volunteered team.
What do you think?
Off my head, this team, could then use this experience to ‘audit’ other Universities (if willing) and/or companies that are heavily (or greatly intent on) using Free and Open Source Software.
Hoping to appeal to the entire ICT community.
Today, i was happy to host the Linux User Group at IHSU. This is what happened here. Its quite a small thing for me running all this Ubuntu, but the raves and uhmms i heard while the IHSU Tour of facilities happened was really something of an encouragement.
IHSU will be happy to show anyone around, what it means to run/power a University with Open Source Software!
LUG Rocks, and we were happy to host you at IHSU. Come back soon.
