Vista. You know, the other one.September 25, 2008 4:45 am General
Linux Journal has an article entitled The *Other* Vista: Successful and Open Source. It’s a brief introduction to the VistA system that is used by the VA and now many private hospitals, and which is the basis for Medsphere’s current products. The article talks a bit about Medsphere’s open source GTK-based OpenVista CIS, the new Medsphere.org initiative, and Congressman Pete Stark’s proposed Health-e Information Technology Act of 2008 bill that would advance open source medical software in the US if it were passed.
It’s really cool to see that our work is being noticed, and that people are starting to think about how open source can affect the medical industry.
