Right now, I don't know. I feel that before we build anything, we need to validate the data. Validating the data can be very tough and tedious. For instance, the other day I took one year and six months of data from a hospital and I'm now importing it one month at a time. It's very tedious. They needed data for their whole warehouse. Then it would be very useful to have a lot of people working on it. It could take off nicely. First, you need to know that the data is correct, though. Right now, we don't know that the data is correct. It is very important to clean the data and ensure that your work is providing data which is really what you're trying to measure. That itself takes some time. I import data each month and check that the number matches. I check that the net amount is correct. It all takes time. I know it's true if somebody else gets the same answer. Importing is where the issue is, though. That is where I'm having trouble because sometimes I find there's only partial importation. I insert an extended table in the columns and rows with good formatting so that it doesn't miss anything. I think that that works well. View full review »
