Today, I flew up to La Crosse, WI to speak to the WI/MN Chapter of AHDI. The title of the presentation (as requested) was Technology and Transcription, Where do We Go from Here? I focused on editing back-end speech recognition results (as with InfraWare's First Draft service) and on structured data via the CDA standards developed by the Health Story Project. The group of about 100 attendees were very engaged in the subjects and had great questions and comments. Many approached me after the presentation to discuss how the presentation helped them connect some dots and put the industry transformation into perspective. Naturally, I was delighted.
I've been a little under the weather this week, but it was a beautiful day for a the trip. It was just a little over 2hrs up, and a little less than 2hrs back. A special thanks to Debbie Krapfl's son Sean who picked me up and returned me to the airport. The WI/MN group has a great organization full of wonderful members.
