ESP is a secure, automated system that analyzes electronic medical record (EMR) data to identify and report patients with notifiable diseases to the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. The growing use of electronic medical record systems (EMRs) permits efficient re-use of data already being collected by clinicians during routine private practice, offering an unparalleled opportunity to improve public health practice. Information held in EMR systems includes diagnoses, procedures, laboratory test, and treatment information, as well as patient demographic data. This software permits secure, simple, and robust messaging from electronic medical record systems to public health authorities.
Bumblebee is a system for managing instruments and other resources (e.g. analytical equipment) that must be shared between a number of users. Bumblebee is designed to be more efficient than a wall calendar or a whiteboard for both users and administrators. Bumblebee is also able to generate reports of resource usage with breakdowns by user, research group, and research project.
Wifimap is a Web-based application that graphically documents the organisation and growth of a wireless network community. The map is composed of numerous square cells that are recombined to display the required area. Users can start with just a few cells to cover their area, and can access different areas of the network by scrolling through the cells. New cells can be easily added using a built in editor. Cells can be added at different zoom levels allowing users to zoom in and out of the map. The design makes it very fast, and it can be run on low powered servers. Wireless nodes can be added or edited with a few mouse clicks. Links between the nodes are automatically drawn based on the data entered for each node, and colours are used to represent different wireless protocols.
Drugref is a collaborative effort to create and maintain a database of pharmaceutical reference information, tagged by language, country, and reference source. A Web interface written in PHP4 allows the community of health professionals to maintain and review content. The database structure, implemented in PostgreSQL, is designed to facilitate automated decision support. "Tagging" allows one to import information from any source in parallel, thus allowing drugref to work as a generic interface to any kind of (comercially or freely) available drug reference information.
