15. Wow, I'd want to work for someone like this

This is an excellent, neigh superior, use of data mining. You're using it to find the people who need the most help then at least offering it to them.

Thanks for the article.

edit: I remember working with end-stage cancer patients, one of the first things I learned was that cancer was just one of a series of problems. Some people were middle class and on top of their issues, but others were really struggling and having cancer on top of it didn't help matters. As an admin, I was constantly referring them to services in the community, like Meals on Wheels, mentioned previously. I really wondered how we could better coordinate the many pieces of these people's lives that needed monitoring. I remember being annoyed at the social workers who didn't seem to know either. (hey, I was young and didnt' realize how overworked they are.) It is gratifying to see that someone is finally paying attention to the bigger puzzle picture.
