  1. Dear Sir:
    Where is your separate article on medical audit, please? You mentioned in Quality Control without link.


  2. Assalamualaikum doc.
    Im now doing my phd on Healthcare Information System. Have been searching all related works and finding a gap and challenges in HIS implementation in Malaysian Gov Hosp. Im very interested on your blog wrting. Can I approach you for my research reference doc? Tqvm


  3. Dear Abdollah, We have had short contact before. Could we communicate on your preop work in progress? I believe I may have interesting views, i.c. preop starting at the conception of the ‘surgical problem’, Our view is that the doctor writing the consultation letter to the de surgeon should already start preparing the patient for possible surgery. Kind Regards, Hans


  4. Impressive. This is a whole lifetime worth of healthcare IT experience put in writing. A lot more of unwritten wisdom are still with the writer!


    1. Yes, I have a lot more to share. Just that “writing” is tedious and needs perseverance. I am ready to publish on “Intake-Output Chart” and then “Implementation of HIS”. Thanks, for the note. it sure will motivate me.
