I wanted to thank Fred Trotter for sending me this note yesterday:
Now you can download and use an FOSS EHR under the GPL that is CCHIT certified. The days of the proprietary EHR systems are OVER.
I love Fred’s enthusiasm about open source software in healthcare, it’s definitely the direction of the future. While CCHIT certification doesn’t actually improve a product or make it any more applicable to a particular client, it’s great to see that a free and open source solution can no longer be derided as “not being certified” by other vendors.
