Thinking about Laboratories and PHGrid

After giving a presentation this afternoon to the PHIN Laboratory Messaging Community of Practice, I worked with Brian to diagram a Proof of Concept that would examine introducing a suite of laboratory services on the PHGrid infrastructure - leveraging the significant work that has taken place in the development of STARRS (Specimen Tracking and Results Reporting System) and LUNA.

Your presentation this afternoon was for me a breath of fresh air. I have allowed use of my home computers for distributed computation forever. I have in the state of Maine always advocated for computational eforts directed at data mining and not data duplication. I wish you well in your pursuit of an open source solution that will increase the electronic exchange of data critical to protecting, and aiding the surveillance of emerging threats to, the public health us all.
