I'm aware that some people might not be pleased by this article.
So I underline that this is my very personal view based on
working in this industry for more than a half-century.

 

 
 

If you develop in IRIS you are confronted with two major phenomena:

  • an incredibly fast and excellent designed data storage engine
  • a scripting language to work on this storage engine, actually named ObjectScript

Easy, easy, I'm not promoting a war against the machines in the best sci-fi way to avoid world domination of Ultron or Skynet.
Not yet, not yet 🤔

I invite you to challenge the machines through the creation of a very simple game using ObjectScript with embedded Python.

We are ridiculously good at mastering data. The data is clean, multi-sourced, related and we only publish it with resulting levels of decay that guarantee the data is current. We chose the HL7 Reference Information Model (RIM) to land the data, and enable exchange of the data through Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR®).

Healthcare interoperability is instrumental in improving patient care, decreasing healthcare provider costs, and providing a more accurate picture to providers. However, with so many different systems, data is formatted in many different ways. There are many standards that have been created to try to solve this problem, including HL7v2, HL7v3, and CDA but each one has its drawbacks.
