| Open-source medical software has been around for over 30 years. 
| Unless you are in healthcare IT, however, chances are you've never

| With the passage of ARRA (the American Recovery And Reinvestment 
| Act of 2009, also called the federal stimulus package), some $19

| technology incentives over the next five years. This program is 
| known as HITECH (PDF), short for Health Information Technology for 
| Economic and Clinical Health.
