My friends call me "Mac". I'm a master of improvisation. I have vast scientific knowledge and unique abilities to use ordinary objects to get myself and friends out of trouble. I typically carry my Swiss Army knife and a roll of duct tape with me at all times. I dislike guns because of a traumatic childhood incident. I try to avoid violence whenever possible. Because my life was getting too stressful at the Phoenix Foundation, I have picked up programming as a new career. I spend my spare time on Stack Overflow.

comment Best index to apply for modifier query in i2b2
@Kin, I'd like to install that tool, but we have to go through a process to get new tools on our machine. I'll post the actual execution plan from SQL Server when I post the answer.

comment Best index to apply for modifier query in i2b2
Despite how this query runs, this query wasn't intentional. i2b2 has its own query writer, and I discovered a flaw in the query writer. It's excluding an absolutely essential piece of the query (the concept_cd nested query) before the modifiers are queried. I'll post more detail when I get time.
