HP edging toward VistA support?

,----[ Quote ]
| Some hints of change may be found at HPâs 
| former Avaya unit. Avaya, now an 
| independent company, participated in the 
| recent review of the VAâs VistA software, 
| an open source project since before the 
| term existed.
| Avaya has also renewed its own commitments 
| to HP, in a new three-year channel 
| agreement.HP views its role as that of a 
| system integrator, often working with its 
| EDS unit.
| Itâs a balancing act. The question is how 
| long it can continue, whether HP will be 
| forced to make a choice between 
| proprietary and open source solutions, and 
| if so which it will choose.


Misys Restates Its Commitment to Open Source in Healthcare


How big a place for Misys open source in healthcare?

,----[ Quote ]
| Having shed its stake in Allscripts and 
| pocketed $1 billion for its British 
| owners, Misys is recommitting itself to 
| open source.


Open source and the VA's health transformation

,----[ Quote ]
| Joseph Dal Molin, one of founders of the 
| WorldVistA project and a speaker in the 
| health care track at the upcoming OSCON 
| convention, recently spoke with me about 
| the Department of Veterans Affairs' 
| historic VistA system and its expansion as 
| an open source effort.



Open-sourcing VistA could revolutionize healthcare records

,----[ Quote ]
| Given the collaborative roots of VistA and all
| the third-party development that's been done
| on top of it, in use in hospitals all over the
| nation, it makes sense to make this a full-
| fledged open source project, engaging the best
| coders and developers out there to build the
| best system for our veterans. And with the
| federal government moving toward electronic
| record-keeping for all healthcare, this gold
| standard could be applied across the board.
