GlobalMed Chief Technology Officer at Delivery of Things Forum

Scottsdale, AZ (October 6, 2016) – The Delivery of Things World USA will bring together many of the nation’s top business software developers and other information technology professionals, October 13-14 in San Diego, to discuss the future of continuous delivery and improvement in a “DevOps” world. DevOps is a term that expresses the culture of development, operations and IT in software. It represents an abbreviated name that describes how developers work through the process.

“Healthcare, the way we do it, is very dynamic,” noted Michael Harris, Chief Technology Officer for GlobalMed, who will be the only speaker at the conference from a company in the healthcare industry. “We have to be able to react as quickly as our customers are asking for it and as quickly as some of our competitors are changing.”

Harris will join an elite group that includes Nolan Bushnell, founder of Atari; Andrew Glover, Engineering Manager, Delivery Engineering for Netflix; Dave McKinstry, Senior Developer and Technology Specialist at Microsoft; and Joshua Semar, Technical Lead, Software Infrastructure for Under Armour.

DevOps has helped Harris and the GlobalMed software team in the creation of a light, brower-based, software platform for remote patient sessions that integrates various USB medical devices. It also captures images and data, preserving them in a patient’s electronic medical record in a PACS server, a cloud server, or to both. They’ve designed the platform, called eNcounter®, to be intuitive and easy to use for both the clinician with the patient and the distant physician.

“In a DevOps world, we’re able to jump and start and jump and start quite a few times, testing in between all of the cycles instead of waiting to the very last minute and testing,” explained Harris, who talks more about DevOps in this video.
