Hospital Mergers Make HIE Integration Even Tougher

Anne Zieger | Hospital EMR and EHR | February 8, 2012

...hospitals continue to merge and sell out to larger health systems, in some cases at an almost manic pace. I don’t have the space to list even a few of the mergers that are dominating business coverage, but I’m sure you know of one in almost every market where you work or have business. These mergers will frequently bring together different EMRs, or even the same EMR configured differently.

In other words, even two Epic systems aren’t going to marry up easily.

How I Ended Up Working in Open Source Healthcare

These days I am one of a small handful of core committers to OpenEMR, but more importantly I am the visible face of the project through my role as the current president of the OEMR.org 501(c)(3), standing on the contributions of a respectable, worldwide, community of active users, contributing developers, and vendors. We have done some seemingly impossible things, like get the OpenEMR project through the ONC's "Meaningful Use" Certification, without which it would have all but died out in the United States. Now, with the project 14 years old and about to be recertified under Meaningful Use Stage 2, it's time to reimagine and reengineer the core without losing the goodness we have and the good will of the community...

International Society Calls for Healthcare Projects to Collaborate using Open Source

Software projects in health care would benefit from increased collaboration, using open source, exchanging know-how and open documentation, say experts from IsfTeH, International Society for Telemedicine and eHealth. “Most important is the sharing of best practices, but reusing common software components also reduces costs”, the experts say. “There are excellent tools and projects in the domain of Free/Libre Open Source Software for Health Care”, the experts say, “but their impact so far is limited. That would change if they banded together to form an ecosystem.”
