有感于身边的电子化、网络化

最近去医院看病,在网上查询科室和医师信息时突然发现北京市竟然已经可以网上预约挂号了,挂号网站是http://www.bjguahao.gov.cn/comm/index.php。怀着试一试的心态,尝试了一把。整个过程非常简单流畅,还会发送相关信息到手机上。一点小遗憾是现在不能挂当天的号。 带着预约号和社保卡就医卡就可以去医院了。

好像每个医院对预约后的取号处理有所不同。我去的同仁医院是这样的,绿卡的自费患者,可以直接拿余额足够的就医卡在自助取号机上取号,蓝卡的医保患者更方便了,可以直接用社保卡在分诊台就取号看病了,看完以后再对挂号费等进行结算,省去了排队挂号的苦恼(可惜我之前不清楚,以为还要去挂号窗口取号,傻傻地排了半天队)。接下来的化验取结果也不是以前那样有个护士在那喊名字或者把一堆化验单丢在那里大家乱翻,到出结果时直接拿着就医卡在自主取单机上打印化验单就可以了。而在医生看诊中的电子化,走得更早。一年前我在同仁医院看病时医生就已经不开手写处方单了,直接在电脑中输入然后打印出来,终于不用猜医生那龙飞凤舞的字迹了。长春的医院做得更进一步,连病历都已经是全电子化出来的了。可惜的是缴费候诊还是漫漫不可避免的排队等待。在无聊等待的过程中,我天花乱坠地想了一番。比如说缴费可以直接通过什么自助缴费机刷卡缴费,甚至可以通过手机终端来缴费;所有的病历电子化,和医保账户绑定,我们再也不用背着那小蓝本跑来跑去(忘记带了还得花钱重买),登陆医保网站就能查看自己所有的病历情况。 虽然以前曾经在三甲医院实习过不短的一段时间,那个医院的信息化做得也很不错了,可是自己当时接触的关注的都是系统底层的那些东西,对于上层的应用根本没有去做了解。而工作中因为经常接触的都是那些“徒劳增加工作量而对实际帮助很少”的系统,让我对于电子化网络化应用这方面变得很漠然。可是今天我却猛然发现如果真正做好了,能给我们的工作生活带来多大的便利(脑子里突然充满了巨大的改造世界的热情- -0)。

在这方便,银行和民航业算是走在了前端,大家都能感受的到,电子商务网购甚至团购的发展也离不开他们的积极向上。而且像神马缴水费煤气费转账信用卡还款现在我都可以通过招行网站+支付宝就搞定了,再也不用去银行排队了(说到这个,招行信用卡网站最近缴水费是不是有问题呢,总是说服务器无响应,害我今天特意去银行缴费,17个号而已,整整排了一个多钟头,眼看差一个号就到我的时候还连续强力插入两个vip,崩溃了)。最近感触比较深刻影响也很大的,就是铁道部将D以上级别的火车票购票在互联网上开放(也包括电话订票系统的建立),我们这种每年都要经历好几次大凌晨的瑟瑟发抖地在购票窗口排队几个小时的可怜人终于得到解放了。还有诸如出租车的网上预约系统,都给生活带来了极大便利。科技以人为本说的就是这个意思吧?在随科技前进的大潮中,铁路和医疗部门也许走得稍微慢了点,但至少他们已经在积极地走起来了。其他部门呢?我们的服务的法检行业呢?是该想想怎么真正促进他们进步而不只是怎么拿走他们的钱了。

以上,抗着病痛连续两天承受早检查和晚培训折磨、每天工时超过12小时的无聊的天天早起的鸟的无病呻吟。准备顶着寒风骑车回家鸟

关于单人旅行

以前没有专门这样做过,但是因为朋友在当地也要工作,所以也有过单人游玩的经历,当时觉得无聊之极,发誓以后再也不要一个人去旅行了。

但 在这个秋天,我却抵抗不了来自中国最新的UNESCO WHS那桂花飘香的诱惑,打破了誓言,大包小包地一个人南下。其实这也只能算50%的单人旅行,因为还是有那么多可爱的当地朋友或多或少地热情接待。但是 最成功的一点是,在我独自一人游玩的那些时光,我没有一刻感觉到孤单,仍然感觉到无限的惊喜和享受,这对我而言已经是一个进步。从此以后我想我再也不会惧 怕单人旅行了吧。

刚有了这个想法,中午在书店看书时发现很好笑的对话,关于单人旅行的讨论
比较经典的版本:
A: 你一个人去旅行?
B: 恩,是啊
A: 为什么不找个人一起?
B: 时间凑不齐,兴趣爱好也难统一
A: 哦,一个人旅行会有艳遇吧
B: ……
关于单人旅行的对话总是以是否有艳遇为结束

时下剩女风行后更流行的版本:
A: 你一个人去旅行?
B: 恩,是啊
A: 为什么不找个人一起?
B: 时间凑不齐,兴趣爱好也难统一
A: 哦,也是,和你差不多大的人,都有家室了,哪里有空和你玩
B: ……

一个人旅行还真是囧啊

Blue Ridge Parkway

I got this nice official card of Blue Ridge Parkway from Mike, USA.

Parkway, a totally new word to me. It is not a National Park but a National Scenic Byway, which is famous for its beauty view. Nevertheless, land on either side of the road is maintained by the National Park Service.

Blue Ridge is a major mountain chain of the Appalachian Mountains. Most of the Blue Ridge Parkway is along the ridge. It was built to connect Shenandoah National Park(northern terminus) to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park(southern terminus). The Blue Ridge Parkway is most visited unit in the United States National.

I also found a great Blue Ridge Parkway route map

Mike wrote, he likes exploring the trails from the park.(Did he mean the Shenandoah National Park?) Exploring in it, Mike said ‘as if the forests belong only to me’. Oh, What an amazing place to go. It reminds me the famous song of John Denver, Take Me Home, Country Roads.
Almost heaven
West Virginia
Blue Ridge Mountains
Shenandoah River
Life is old there…

Oh, wasn’t he singing about the beautiful place showing on the card? My heart has flied there.

village of Positano

Recently I received this lovely card of Positano from dear Ilaria, Italy. It’s on in Costiera Amalfitana, which is an UNESCO WHS of Italy.

Ilaria lives not far from there, but there is only one road to access, which often full of traffic in the holiday seasons. Although an important tourist destination nowadays, Positano was a relatively poor fishing village during the first half of the 20th century. It began to attract large numbers of tourists in the 1950s.

Ilaria  told me the colorful houses and hotels are separated by narrow little streets with winding stairways that connect the town.  Hummm, a typical seaside village of southern Europe in my mind.

I also find out an interesting novel about the village, it’s Finding Positano, a love story, by William James. How enjoyable if I could sit in the sunshine of Positano reading this novel.

Smilies on the subway of China

Today I found an interesting picture discribing the faces on the bus in the rush hours, which is really funny.

Then I found another picture about subway, more interesting.

As I myself often go to work by subway, I can understand the pic totally.

Kakadu National Park in Australia

Yesterday I received a postcard of Kakadu from Phillipa, Australia, via private swap. And lovely koala stamp.

Thank you.

This is one of my favorite type of postcard to receive, as it’s a national park as well as an UNESCO  Word Hertitage Site. And I really love the stunning view with green color.

Kakadu is in the Northern Territory of Australia, 171km southeast of Darwin. It’s the size of  Slovenia(Wow) and the Ranger Uranium Mine, one of the most productive Uranium mines in the world, is contained within the park.

The name Kakadu comes from the mispronunciation of ‘Gagadju’ which is the name of an Aboriginal language spoken in the northern part of the Park.

I don’t realize its danger untill Phillipa told me that there are many saltwater crocodiles. Then I remembered the TV program Man vs Wild, Bear Grylls once explored his advanture in Northern Territory of Australia, where he said it’s one of the most dangerous places in world. He encoutered many many freshwater crocodiles there. And it’s Kakadu! Actually there are two species of crocodile occur in Kakadu: the Freshwater Crocodile (Crocodylus johnstonii) and the Estuarine, or Saltwater Crocodile (C. porosus). Both of them are protected by law.

That’s Kakadu, danger hides under its gorgeous outside.

Happy New Year!

Hi everybody

It seems it’s too late to say a new year greeting. But in China, the traditional New Year just arrived. We call it 春节(Spring Festival), which means that the spring is coming soon^_^ I love snow in winter, but I think spring is more beautiful, flowers, green grass, warm wind… So happy new year to all my friends, I wish you everything goes well!

Since 2010.12.17, I was almost out of Beijing for work, I was in Jilin and Guizhou. Do you know Guizhou? It’s not my hometown but the place I grew up. And my parents live there. I was very lucky to work there before the Spring Festival. That means when I finished my work, I need not come back Beijing but stay home directly to spend my Spring Festival holiday. So this year I spent more time with my parents than any other years!

Now I’v come back to Beijing. Life is going on, work is going on, postcrossing is going on^_^
