HAVE YOUR COMPUTER QUESTIONS ANSWERED!

The program planners for our First Wednesday PATACS meetings in Arlington are looking for topics that members would like to have explored or questions answered - this is your opportunity to have a say in topics addressed at this meeting. This is a smaller meeting than the Fairfax meeting, and it allows for much more interaction between members than is possible in Fairfax. And there's the post-meeting Pizza and Salad SIG, the post-meeting social at a nearby restaurant - another value-added feature of your membership! Please send your suggestions to our meeting program planners at arlmtgpgm@patacs.org.

Death By a Thousand Clicks:
A Backdoor Look At
The Mighty Electronic Health Record

Presented by Michele Romano, MD

The technology tsunami continues worldwide and no more so than in the healthcare field. We have tools for diagnosis, management, prevention, treatment and communication that would not be possible without the computer capabilities we have today. So, how fast is 'fast'? I recently read that the US's Frontier supercomputer system won out for 2022 with the ability to process 1.102 exaFLOPS/ second. That's over one quintillion calculations per second. That's obscenely fast. How do you even get your head around that?? And, if you run out of storage space, there's always the cloud (I'm going with cumulonimbus myself). This talk is a deep dive into one aspect which affects the lives of patients and providers alike: the Electronic Health Record (EHR). It not only stores your health information, it also captures vast amounts of data for public health and socioeconomic issues. Sounds wonderful, doesn't it? Sometimes yes, sometimes no. If I don't get to all the questions, please email me at tufax2@gmail.com. I will definitely get back to you within 48 hours. Keep in mind that I may not be right but I'm never in doubt.

Dr. Michele Romano is a retired Family Physician and Associate Clinical Professor at VCU School of Medicine in Richmond, Virginia. She has an undergraduate degree in biology and received her medical degree from VCU. She has over 25 years experience in Family  Medicine. She served on the VCU Board of Visitors and the VCU Health System Board. She was a Critical Care Nurse for 12 years before attending medical school and opened the first nonmilitary ICU in the interior of Alaska. How cool is that?

OPCUG Members Welcome!

PATACS - Arlington,
4th Wednesday, February 22nd, 7 PM
Zoom Details Will be Sent by Email

Meeting Location: Carlin Hall Community Center,
5711 S. 4th Street, Arlington, VA 22204


Technology & PC Help Desk:
Extended Q&A
Troubleshooting

Do all your electronics, gadgets, computers, phones, tablets, TV sets, networks, earbuds, and software apps/applications work perfectly? Do you never encounter glitches, freezes, failures? Are you always certain what brand and model product to buy? If so, we'd like to hear about your magic touch.

But if you're like the rest of us, none of that is true for you. And so PATACS' first Wednesday meetings may be just the resource you need for a happier technology life. Just as most PATACS meetings begin with a Q&A session, so does this meeting. But then the meeting continues for nothing but Q&A -- meaning that it's possible to have detailed and in-depth discussions, including real-time research and demonstrations.

Same as all PATACS meetings, these sessions are free and open to the public. So join in, share your questions, problems, and pain -- and perhaps receive answers, solutions, and relief.
