Reminder: Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) in healthcare unconference in Houston next week

I grew up in Houston and normally it’s not exactly the best place to be in the middle of Summer (it’s pretty hot and humid); however, this Summer is different because we have the Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) in healthcare unconference taking place next week.

This is a conference/unconference about Free and Open Source Software in Healthcare. Open Source was specifically mentioned in the Hi-Tech portion of the stimulus bill!

All of the top projects will be showing off their newest stuff Open Source systems. So far we have confirmations from

  • WorldVistA (EHR),

  • Misys (Interoperability),

  • OpenMRS (EHR)

  • ClearHealth (EHR)

  • OpenClinica (Clinical Research)

  • Mirth – WebReach (HL7 router!),

  • OpenVistA -Medsphere (EHR)

  • Sun Microsystems

If you are thinking about installing -any- Health Information technology, from EHR to clinical research, this is one stop shopping for the most cost-effective source for these technologies.

If you already work with Health Information technology come learn about how the Open Source revoltion is already impacting Health IT by providing you with high quality tools that work out-of-the-box to solve your Health IT problems.
