THE critics of the government certainly have a number of arrows in their arsenal, when contemplating the number of ongoing or planned projects meant to address our anemic healthcare system. Why tackle work on multiple hospitals if there are not sufficient resources to complete one structure fully and in a timely manner? A reasonable question. Yet another: “What gives you the confidence that the plans for construction of any facility can happen in the time frame projected?” In answering these questions, one would expect an answer that reveals some clarity and foresight and experience that would win over even the most doubting critics. Goodness knows that we all depend on a thriving and functioning system to provide us with our healthcare needs.
In the world of programming, it is well known that within certain limitations, almost any language could be used to create a desired application. The speed of the development will greatly depend on the tools used, in addition to the skill level of the programmer. A sufficiently high-level language may do, with a single line of code, what you might spend a whole day attempting to do with the wrong tool at your disposal.
