Visiting Professorship in Paris
George Mickhail has been invited as a Visiting Professor by the IESEG School of Management in Paris, one of the top 10 business schools in France, to discuss the geo-financial and geopolitics of the global financial crisis and climate change, in a series of guest lectures during the last week of September, titled: "International Issues in Accounting and Auditing".
MegaCommunity Research Collaboration
George is leading a megaCommunity research project in Spatial Autonomic Health Accounting Applications (SAHAA) at the Centre region in France. SAHAA evolved out of an earlier multilingual e-Health prototype, that he developed and explored its implementation at a major Sydney Hospice in 2008, so as to facilitate and enhance the often misunderstood and undocumented interactions between healthcare professionals and patients, due to (a) language and cultural background barriers, and (b) time-poor healthcare professionals who are focused on formal diagnostic protocols while not paying proper attention to patients descriptions of their own symptoms, which place patients at risk of incorrect diagnosis and/or treatment. The SAHAA system serves three main purposes: (a) assist in the verbal and non-verbal multilingual and intercultural interaction between health professionals and patients, (b) assist with medical diagnostics using heuristics and spatial data-mining support, and (c) the autonomous optimisation of healthcare diagnostic and operational procedures within the dynamically changing operational benchmarks and financial constraints. The system will be piloted at the Centre region hospital, with its emergency services, inpatient and outpatient departments. Touch screen terminals will go up in city centres and around key tourist sites, to enable emergency and Health enquiries. The system will be available on the iPhone and iPad platform to enable residents, visitors and medical practitioners of the region to tap into the region’s emergency and e-Health services.
