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.

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,



William Rose

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/Priorit
yProgram-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
