Halamka: Open standards are 'key to interoperability'

,----[ Quote ]
| At the Opensource.com Open Your World
| Forum on May 27, John D. Halamka, MD, CIO
| of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center
| and CIO of Harvard Medical School,
| described where open source and open
| standards  fit into the ARRA expectations
| for healthcare IT. The short answer is,
| everywhere.
| âWe run a data center with a couple of
| petabytes of healthcare data for three
| million patients and the entire
| infrastructure is run on Red Hat
| technologies,â Halamka said. âWe have
| multiple data centers, multiple clusters
| of Linux servers and we havenât had
| downtime in a couple of years. No CIO in
| healthcare is afraid of open source. In
| fact, the movement to Linux clusters that
| are highly reliable for healthcare is the
| way the back end in most healthcare data
| centers seem to be going.
