Chris Ashworth had studied computer science but never written an entire piece of software when a North Carolina theater production company asked for his help. What he came up with would be a huge hit with creative professionals who design elaborate stage productions across the world. The theater company needed software that could help manage sound effects for a play while running on an Apple computer. Ashworth was a computer science graduate student in North Carolina, and he and a friend built one for them in a little over a month.

Shore Health System, a set of community hospitals on the Eastern Shore, is in talks to merge with the University of Maryland Medical System in an effort to boost business and services, officials for both groups said yesterday. The two systems have signed a letter of intent, and a deal could come as soon as this winter, although there is not a time limit to send it to their respective boards for approval. There would not be a cash payment, but Maryland would make an unspecified amount of investment in staff and hospital infrastructure on the Shore, said John W. Ashworth III, the Maryland system's senior vice president of network development and associate dean of Maryland's School of Medicine.

The Maryland Shock Trauma Center can't get more trauma patients with billboards or bus signs.Yet without more patients, says director John W. Ashworth III, the pioneering center, which closed 20 beds and cut 66 jobs last fall, would be forced to shrink again in the next few years.So Ashworth is quietly laying the groundwork to get a larger share of the state's trauma patients. But Shock Trauma's gain would come at the expense of other trauma centers, at a time when Maryland hospitals - with 40 percent of beds empty - are competing fiercely.
