HIMSS Feature: FHA exec elucidates goals with open-source software

,----[ Quote ]
| This was one reason that ONC developed 
| CONNECT, open-source software that enables 
| exchange of health information across 
| providers regardless of size. CONNECT is one 
| tool being used to build the Nationwide Health 
| Information Network (NHIN), and was 
| demonstrated at HIMSS10âs Interoperability 
| Showcase.


New Government Open Source Population Health Tool

,----[ Quote ]
| The Federal Health Architecture, an E-
| Government initiative managed by the Health 
| and Human Services Office of the National 
| Coordinator for Health IT, has set up an 
| online resource, projectpophealth.org, which 
| offers an open source tool to enable health 
| care providers and electronic health record 
| (EHR) vendors to create summary quality 
| measures on a patient population. 



A Healthy Move for Open Source

,----[ Quote ]
| What's interesting here is how different
| projects from around the world are being
| brought together to be applied to a new
| problem. This kind of re-purposing is one of
| the great advantages of free software, since
| it's not necessary to ask permission or to
| negotiate impossibly complex licensing
| agreements to do so, as would be the case with
| traditional software. Let's hope we see many
| more such applications.
