Update on Mobile Question App

  • Marcelo demoed his ontology based quiz app functionality. Sharon recorded the demo so others could view it. The demo was well received. However, Marcelo has looked at the FHIR ontology and was not able to make good questions from it since its very flat. He is now going to review the CDA ontology and get back to us.
  • Here is a link to the demo recording:

  • Sharon noted that we would want the questions generated but would not need the app part since we already signed a contract with Qstream
  • This is an important initiative for headquarters - need an instance live by September.
  • Melissa expressed a possible interest in beta testing.
