My name is Dr. Aaron J. Drew and I am the Chief Engineer, Chief Architect, and Technical Director for the VA's VistA Evolution Program. Can we meet to discuss? My email address is email@example.com
Dr. Aaron Drew
Hi Dr. Aaron. thanks for posting this question. I was at HIMSS and participated on your presentation about VistA Evolution. I am the administrator of the VistA Extensions Hub and active member of the VistA Community in general.
I would like to explore with you what we can offer to facilitate community communication. I am usually having more than 50 VistA related webinars a year in our Extension Hub and I think we could have a series of them during this year to support your efforts. A monthly webinar could be great to address multiple topics related to VistA Evolution.
We are complementing OSEHRA and VistA Community Meetings so I think our objectives are aligned.
Please let me know
If I have learned anything about groups of people and coordinating between them, it is that over-communication is necessary, because for some people it is barely communication. So I applaud your efforts to use multiple methods and venues to communicate.
For VistA Evolution, where you are trying to do something new, you have the task of assuring folk that even if it is new that it will meet their needs, and that even if it has a lot of things familiar which could be called old, that you are very attentive to doing things in innovative ways that will make things easier and faster.
Since these are radically opposed messages, I think you need an effort that consciously needs to be dual-pronged rather than a single effort that will not meet the other thrust's needs.
My question was directed at any of the moderators. I would like to have their efforts and my efforts to socialize the work the VA is doing with the VistA Evolution Program coordinated. I think we can reach more people together.
Dr. Aaron J. Drew
Are you talking about an in face meeting like at the VistA Community Meeting or a Conference Call ?
Also who did you direct the question toward?
