Max Green and Brooke Murphy | Becker’s Health IT & CIO Review | December 16, 2015

It seems like every week in 2015 — if not most days — brought news of a new healthcare startup company whose app garnered millions in early funding.

A Primer on the Open Source Movement from a Health Care Perspective

Open source, in myriad forms, has emerged as a significant development model that drives both innovation and technological dispersion.
