Developing an EMR for a psychiatrist

Sometimes existing EMR solutions don't meet he most basics needs of certain specialties in healthcare, or are just way too expensive. For this purpose a simple filemaker application mimicking an old tool which is not sold any more meets the needs. Apple facilities are used for calendar and tasks synchronization along with day to day GTD™ organization.

Code gen app on its way

As a proof of concept I am developing a code generator with Antlr, a powerful compiler-compiler combining lexers, parsers, tree parsers, embedded actions and output templates to name a few. The aim is to bootstrap code from  a concise dsl including class and attributes definitions with their relationships,  constraints on attributes, modifiers describing their persistability and in the near future pluggable modifiers for specific targets. From a few lines you will generate the classes with the correct package, the persistence, with hibernate for example (plugged-in library) and optionally set it as annotations. The POC generates the classes for now. More on the subject in the following weeks.

Webhosting is up

Good news

firefoxGood news: the mindspark.be and mindspark.eu domains were registered with the french internet provider OVH. This means that as soon as the webdesigner finshes its contract the website will be made (this is just a temporary layout)

The real romance is out ahead and yet to come. The computer revolution
hasn't started yet. Don't be misled by the enormous flow of money into
bad defacto standards for unsophisticated buyers using poor adaptations
of incomplete ideas.
