Definitions for "Profiling"
An analytic tool that uses epidemiologic methods to compare practice patterns of providers on the dimensions of cost, service use, or quality of care. The provider's pattern of practice is expressed as a rate aggregated over time for defined population of patients.
a biological tool which allows the scientist to compare samples of DNA material
an example of how advances in medical research have proved useful in police and science forensic work
systematic method of collecting, collating, and analyzing patient data to develop provider-specific information about medical practice.

Cutting out the shape (or profile) of a piece of material. The most common example of profiling is cutting out name badges in the shape of a logo.
The technique of cutting through a piece of material using a rotary engraving cutter. This method of engraving is commonly used for making badge blanks, cutting out irregular shapes or making cut-outs in control panels.
Profiling is a method by which the performance of an application can be examined. Profiling allows the user to look at the function calls an application is making, how often they are being called, and how much time is spent executing each function. This can uncover "bottlenecks" in the application that can be examined and fixed.
The act of determining how much CPU time is used by each function or subroutine in a program. The histogram or table produced is called the execution profile.
The process of generating a statistical analysis of a program that shows processor time and the percentage of program execution time used by each procedure in the program.
In the construction of fieldworks, the erection at proper intervals of wooden profiles, to show to the workmen the sectional form of the parapets at those points.
A system that enables electricity retailers to assess how much electricity their customers are using every 30 minutes.
A method of collecting data by periodically examining and recording the program's program counter (PC), call stack, and hardware counters that measure resource consumption.
Profiling is the estimation of a consumers' half-hour consumption through the use of a profile of that consumers' load shape. It enables a retailer to submit the consumption of a non-half-hour metered consumer into the national reconciliation process as if that consumer were half-hour metered.
