  • The storage phase is a key part of the process for record keeping and future support of your SQL reports.

    At last we’ve reached the final stage in the basic reporting cycle! The storage phase is a key part of the process for record keeping and future support. This is a process where any information about the report is archived and stored for later use or reference. Personally, I usually end up with a collection of working documents, notes, emails, and spreadsheets that somehow belong to the end result. It makes sense to store this information in a safe place that can be referenced for later use. (Not on your desktop!) In some cases, this will be another developer so a good practice is to keep your notes clean and readable.


    Here are a few examples of the information that should be stored and archived possibly in a network folder or other easily accessible location:

    Documents:
    Any documentation that was used during the report request or construction. This may include the original official request document, vendor specs, or any important correspondence that took place du…

  • It sounds crazy, but every former MEDITECH employee goes through it. What's seen as a MEDITECH customer is opposite to the AMS view they see.

    DISCLAIMER: Apologies in advance for folks who are used to seeing "MEDITECH" and not "Meditech"--it's an old habit and for some may even be a calling card since we've had to write it 10 million times and are done trying to be politically correct! Figured I'd throw that out there if anyone thought I was nuts...but enough of that, on with the show...

    I spent the first two years of my professional life having Meditech tasks be my life. That being said, I started working for a health system and literally my first day on the job, I signed on and saw some sort of web-based task system--I honestly thought I was getting hazed my first day on the job! The world you live in as a Specialist and that of the post Meditech world are very different--here's another peek into what it's like within one of the world's most successful healthcare EHR companies...

    When in doubt, keep it in-house
    Believe it or not, there is a strong desire to keep ever…

  • A great SQL analogy is buying a new car. It can take you anywhere, but it doesn’t do any good unless someone in your family knows how to drive it.

    With increasing demands in reporting, analysis, and business intelligence, it is imperative that facilities make full productive use of the Data Repository. Modern report requirements can demand much greater complexity and contain even more variables than ever before. When mastered, the SQL language is much better suited to handle reports of this nature over traditional NPR. And because SQL statements are much faster to create, run, and modify, it also increases productivity.

    A great analogy is buying a new car. Sure, it can take you anywhere, but it doesn’t do any good unless someone in your family knows how to drive it. The DR requires at least a basic understanding of the SQL language. The more, the better…

    This article contains some basic SQL syntax tricks that I have found very useful when designing common reports from the DR. This small list is only the beginning of the resource we’ll be building as look into more complicated query structures and s…
