[chai-t] Re: April meeting wrap-up

Had a question on parking – there is a fair amount of 2hr parking (unmetered) 
in the streets around the office.  In particular the south-side of Elizabeth St 
in Shelley Street and Garfield Street (which is about a 2 or 3 minute walk to 
the office).   If public transport is your thing – the 109 tram down Victoria 
St or North Richmond station are both within 100 meters of the building.

 

Thanks

Jen

Hi All,

 

Just confirming that next meeting is going to be at the “swish-o” board room at 
Mercy Health in Richmond (18th May from 3:30pm).  I’m all for one-upmanship – 
so I’ll be trying to out-do William’s Monte Carlo biscuits – so if the QlikView 
presentation is not enough to entice you to attend – perhaps the prospect of 
afternoon tea is?!?

 

The Address is Level 2, 12 Shelley Street in Richmond (just off Victoria St)

Let me know if I’ve left out any vital information or if there are any 
questions.

 

Cheers

Jen

Hi all,

 

Thanks to Chris, Jenny, Nick, Peter, Rajesh, Rose, Sweta and Tracey  for making 
the trip over to Peter Mac on Friday afternoon.

 

It was good to hear where people were up to with ABF -- I always learn a bit 
more each time I talk about it!

 

Thanks again to Chris and Peter for taking the time to talk to their work 
plans. I'm glad to hear that VHIMS/Riskman is tricky from a reporting 
perspective at other sites too. 

 

It was good to hear a bit about QlikView from Peter & Jenny -- and Jenny has 
kindly offered to demo their new reporting suites next month, hosted at the 
Mercy on the 18th of May. Apparently they have a swish-o board room and can 
even provide tea and coffee, so don't miss out!

 

A reminder of the upcoming calendar:

*       18th May - at the Mercy
*       15th June 
*       20th July -- the post-ABF-stress-disorder group
*       17th August
*       21st September
*       19th October
*       16th November
*       21st December

 

From a CHADx perspective, it seems it's on the radar, but on the nice-to-have 
list only, given the current focus on other funding reform and infrastructure 
type issues. Peter says Ray from Austin has started on a SQL based one, and I'm 
continuing to work on a standalone grouper that I can run in my daily batch. I 
will keep you posted!

 

From a mailing list perspective, if receiving a copy of the emails you send is 
undesirable, you can switch it off in the mailing list settings (Chris M - I've 
done this for you). Browse to http://www.freelists.org/list/chai-t 
<http://www.freelists.org/list/chai-t> , choose Log in directly to this list, 
enter your email address and password, click the Change Settings button, then 
uncheck ECHOPOST and click Update your account. If you don't have a password, 
just leave the field blank when you log in, and it will email you a new one.

 

After reflecting on the discussion, I'm going to keep the archives searchable 
for now - I think the benefits to list members and newcomers who can look 
through the history of discussions outweighs the spam potential. As shown on 
Friday, the email obfuscation applied by freelists also covers email addresses 
in signatures (though not phone numbers), and I think this helps keep it 
relatively benign. Feel free to contact me off-list if keeping searchable 
archives makes you disinclined to participate.

 

 

Kind regards,

Subject: [chai-t] Reminder: Meeting tomorrow 3:30pm - Peter Mac Seminar Room 1

Hi all,

 

A quick reminder that we are on for tomorrow at 3:30pm in EDU Seminar Room 1 at 
Peter Mac. I have Monte Carlos (and more): please don't make me eat them all 
myself.

 

Proposed Agenda

1.      Welcome
2.      ABF Update -- apparently a "whole bunch of stuff" was coming from IHPA, 
NHPA, etc "at the end of March". This happened, but apparently it's only 
released to State Government at present and we are not privy to the details. 
I'd like to spend 5-10 minutes seeing if other stuff has come through or 
whether there are special codewords to get you access to the doco.
3.      Dashboards -- what's planned at the sites working actively on these, 
and what advice do sites that have them wish they'd had.
        Chris Macmanus is happy to present on his work plan, others welcome to 
join in.
4.      QlikView -- I have made a very quick demo using our inpatient data to 
show what I like about the tool. If others have something they can remote 
desktop to, or otherwise bring in on a USB, please do so. I'd be interested to 
see how people are going to use it or roll it out.
5.      CHADx grouper -- the Health Round Table have started producing reports 
on complications by CHADx groups 
<http://www.health.gov.au/internet/safety/publishing.nsf/Content/PriorityProgram-08_CostHAD>
 , yet I can't find any place where there is a grouper for these. I've started 
tinkering with building my own -- it would be good to do it in a way that 
people can reuse if there is interest.
6.      Chat about the old times.

We might not completely address everything: I'm happy to carry some stuff over 
and reorder to suit interest.

 

I had an item for interhospital balances (aka why does my CFO want me to write 
a web app for this), but after digging further here it turns out this is being 
chased up through a different group as to whether HealthSMART's Oracle team can 
build it as a report in Discoverer. Happy to put it back on the agenda if 
there's been work done at other sites to help this.

 

 

I would also like to point out that the mailing list archives are currently 
publicly accessible -- as in they appear on Google. I think I can change this 
if people would prefer it to be private.

 

Kind regards,

 

William Rose
