I have been working on several Software Development projects for BMDMI ministries. Library Management for GSCA, Data Services for the BMDMI Hospital, and Missionary Services for all the BMDMI Missionaries.
Laurie has worked very hard at getting the 7000 books entered into the new software. Now, she is using it to keep track of the GSCA library books. She uses a handheld barcode scanner to check the books out and back in, and the school maintains an accurate record of which students have books at any given time.
We are in the process of expanding the Missionary Services area here at BMDMI. I wrote a Missionary Accounting Program that has been in place and used for many years. Now we are adding to that service with a Newsletter Publishing System, Internal Mission News, Missionary Resources, and Missionary Development.
Missionary Services is still in development. Lord willing, in the next few months it will launch, and the Missionaries will have access to the services.
I have put the last six months in on a Patient Management System for the BMDMI Hospital. It has been rolled out in an Alpha stage. A couple of departments are learning the systems operations now, and more departments are added as the staff gets a handle on them.
The system departments include - Admitting, Consulting, Finance, Laboratory, Radiology, Dentistry, Pharmacy, and System Administration. One-by-one they are going online.
We were blessed to have a small visitor on our back porch one morning. He only stayed for a single day, but it sure was cool to see him considering we live in a city of 1.2 million people. We noticed him early in the morning and by sundown, he was gone.
We looked for him again the next morning, hoping to see him again; he did not return.
