Synergy: There could be some

Synergy: There could be some tremendous mutually beneficial synergy generated if members of the OpenEMR community, the OpenMRS community, and the VistA/OSEHRA community were to reach out to each other and collaborate on innovative new modules or additions to their EMR systems, e.g. genomic information, medical imaging, predictive health, etc. I hope that in the coming OSCON, GOSCON, POSSCON, and other similar conferences we will see presentations and demos from members from each of these 'open' eHealth communities.
