During the next two days I’ll be attending the BCS Health Scotland Conference, which you can read about here. It’s exciting to see some of these words and phrases turning up in the programme: OpenEHR, clinical data standards, “turning data into intelligence”, “collaborative approach”, etc. All very promising. There are several items on the programme which have something to do with portals – I hope to finally find out what it is they mean when they talk about a portal! (Not what I would usually call a portal, perhaps.) I’m very pleased to say that delegates are being encouraged to share their experience of the conference through the social web, via Twitter, Etherpad or blogging (hence the tag to this post).
