Wiley’s predatory behavior recently with a colleague’s scientific manuscript makes me want to avoid publishing in their journals. Read about our experience.
“AI on the edge” was a new term for me that I learned from Marc Staimer, founder of Dragon Slayer Consulting, who was interviewed in a podcast. Marc explained how AI on the edge poses a data storage problem, and my blog post proposes a solution!
“What is the ONC?” is what I used to ask before I realized it involves health technology. Although ONC just means “Office of the National Coordinator”, this agency is now known as HealthIT.gov, as I explain in my blog post.
What does the SAMHSA actually do for mental health and substance abuse patients in the US? The answer is, “nothing directly” – however, indirectly, SAMHSA has had a profound impact on behavioral health patients, and the result has not always been positive, as you can read in my blog post.
Four levels of intervention is a framework we use in public health to think about how to attack a problem. I explain it and give a few examples of application in my blog post (along with a video).
“What is the IHS?” is a reasonable question to ask, because there are a few things that are very special about the IHS and its healthcare facilities. At first glance, these special characteristics may seem positive, but they actually have devastating unintended consequences, as I describe in my blog post.
Pie chart ggplot style is surprisingly hard to make, mainly because ggplot2 did not give us a circle shape to deal with. But I explain how to get around it in my blog pot.
“What is the HRSA?” can be answered two ways: with a short answer, and a long answer. The short answer is that it is the agency that funds public health departments in the United States. The long answer, which I unpack in my blog post, is more nuanced, harrowing, and ultimately, depressing.
Wondering what we mean by the National Institutes of Health (NIH)? In my blog post, I explain the NIH’s role in appropriating funding for research, and demystify its role in implementing federal priorities.
