AMIA - Days 2 &3

Well, it's been quite exciting over here at AMIA. Many informative sessions. Of most interest, was the session on the National Centers for Biomedical Computing (at Utah, Stanford, Harvard, and UCLA). It appears after years of buildup, the convergence of bioinformatics and medical computing is approaching a dawn. Best of luck to these centers and I look forward to their research and developments.

I've had some great conversations with people from all over the world and have learned about fascinating problems that need formal privacy solutions. In that respect, my talk at the general conference yesterday went over great. It was a packed room, and it's clear that with HIPAA Privacy and Security Rules now in full swing, the community is beginning to sit up and take notice that technological approachs to privacy protection are not only interesting, but necessary.

Oh, the Regenstrief (Indiana University) continent (i.e. over 30 people) is a great group of people to interact with and - thanks for the dinner guys!
