The OSS Cure for What Ails Hospital IT

,----[ Quote ]
| "Our central IT department is too small, so we did this transition on our 
| own. Now we are seeing signs of the Linux operating system spreading 
| elsewhere in the system. The central office has a large proprietary staff but 
| no technicians to handle Linux. They view us as progressive technologists," 
| Ron Skantz, Linux administrator for Florida Hospital, told 
| LinuxInsider. "They are going to have to do the same thing we did."

Hospital software vendor McKesson uses Linux to heal IT budgets

,----[ Quote ]
| At first, convincing hospital executives to go with McKesson's Linux-based 
| applications was difficult because of fears that Linux wouldn't be as 
| reliable as Unix, which had been in their IT shops for years, Simpson 
| said. "It took some time for them to understand that open source is safe, 
| that open source has support," he added.    
| The deal with Red Hat "really kicked the program into gear," he said, 
| allowing McKesson to offer its software with Red Hat Enterprise Linux in a 
| top-to-bottom package for mission-critical hospital IT systems.   


Is Linux enough for open source medical advocates?

,----[ Quote ]
| The change occurs on the back-end, where Linux is the OS, and where customers 
| may even choose MySQL or Ingres as their database technology. 
| McKesson says 75% of its roughly 2,500 hospital customers have embraced the 
| change, with Oracle as the company’s current database of choice. “The best of 
| both worlds” the company says.

Editor's Corner (on Open Source in Healthcare)

,----[ Quote ]
| Suggesting that a private healthcare provider switch from
| proprietary software to open source-based applications is one
| thing. But when an official affiliated with as august a body as
| the United Nations suggests that all member countries adopt open
| source for their healthcare applications, that's a much bigger deal.


Linux in Healthcare

,----[ Quote ]
| Linux in healthcare is a tale of things seen and unseen. Linux/Open
| Source have enjoyed tremendous popularity in embedded systems and
| networks for major technologies used in healthcare that healthcare
| providers may not even be aware of.


Next Gen, Mission-Critical Apps To Be Deployed on Linux Says Report

,----[ Quote ]
| By now it should be obvious to even the most casual industry observers
| that Linux operating systems - and open source-based software in general -
| have reached critical marketplace mass. Recent Linux deals and
| announcements by Oracle and Microsoft have only reinforced the "open
| source is enterprise-grade" message that IBM, Unisys and other "Master
| Brand" hardware, software and services vendors have been preaching for
| years. In short, open source, especially Linux, is becoming "legitimized"
| by the major vendors for enterprise environments, and user executives
| are more than happy to believe them.

| - have reached critical marketplace mass," said the study's authors,
| Bruce Guptill and Bill McNee of Saugatuck Research.
