It’s been quite a while since I posted. However, I am still actively developing CarsonDB. I have been threatened with a Cease and Desist Demand Letter, but I will cover that in a different post. The latest version (CarsonDB 1.1.0) adds a unique capability to CarsonDB that was suggested by one of the CarsonDB users. One of the biggest issues with mining the AVImark database is the amount of tables that need to be reverse engineered. It will require a lot of time to reverse engineer everything. My first objective was to data mine the tables with what I perceived as the most relevant information.
Since people use CarsonDB for different reasons, what may be useful to an insurance company may be different than someone writing artificial intelligence software to determine problems based on diagnostic history. For instance, I never considered patient visit history. Information like weight history, body temperature, etc. are valuable data points that I did not consider. The latest version contains the “Medical” table which will give you this information.
In addition to that, I have added the ability for you to mine your own data. If you have the skills to mine AVImark’s data files, and there is a table that I haven’t added yet, you can do it yourself. Look at the “Visit.cs” in the source code for reference. This is, however, for advanced software developers and it’s certainly not a requirement as long as you don’t need more data than CarsonDB already provides.
If you find there is a table, or data, that you need and you can’t find, just ask me (you can ask in the comments section below). I will try to give you everything you ask for because the more data I extract, the better CarsonDB will be.
As always, thank you for your support and encouragement. It’s users like you who make CarsonDB worth the hundreds of hours I have put into it!
