Mirth Systems Acquired by Quality Systems

I don't know if you missed this news or not. I think it's pretty big news, especially for the 'Open Health' information technology (IT) community.

Quality Systems, Inc., acquired the Mirth Corporation on Sepetember 9, 2013. Their press release states that they "will maintain the Mirth brand identity, office, team, and products and will continue to market Mirth’s commercial solutions and serve as the hub for the Mirth Connect open-source community."

Mirth has long had a sterling reputation as one of the most adopted, open, and globally trusted interconnectivity platforms. I hope Quality Systems will retain the strong ties Mirth had with the open source health IT community. It would be a major blow if they didn't.
