Congratulations on your new book. Great topic.

Ray Hutchins

As a software professional, I continue to be underwhelmed by social media as a truly useful information tool, but continue to basically hold my tongue until it shakes out further.

But unique and innovative software applications may ultimately trickle down into the mobile space and help facilitate more useful functionalities.

I think GIS and ontologies will play an important role in making this happen--and small companies that have a head start will be the thought leaders in this regard.

I urge anyone who is interested in healthcare IT advancements to take a hard look at a privately-held software development company in Colorado that has made an advancement that can be of benefit to many areas of healthcare. TerraFrame has developed and deployed an ontologically-based, GIS integrated disease management decision support system in Africa to fight malaria. This SaaS application was funded by the leading global combatants of this malaria and the system can be rapidly customized for deployment to other disease environments…especially if vector-borne diseases. TerraFrame’s technology team that is available to customize their software platform and to use GIS integrated ontologies to create decision support systems for any industry or government needs. They are interested in leveraging to creatively solve complex problems. For more information please contact Ray Hutchins at rh@terraframe.co
