foss-for-health.org

We have just formally launched the foss-for-health.org web portal recently.

foss-for-health.org is part of the Open Source and Standards PCTA (PANACeA Common Thematic Activities) that hopes to help create awareness of Free and Open Source Software(FOSS) in eHealth, promote its use and build both capacity and support for those starting to adopt it.

PANACeA (PAN Asian Collaboration for Evidence-based eHealth Adoption and Application) is an initiative to generate evidence in the field of eHealth within the Asian context, by forming a network of researchers and research projects from developing Asian countries.

PANACeA supports multinational projects to evaluate eHealth solution in the field and generate evidence through methodologically sound research.

foss-for-health.org aims to build a FOSS for eHealth Online Community that can be a venue for networking and exchanging ideas and experience on FOSS use, best practices and business models for sustainability aside from providing online support to FOSS adopters and making available FOSS resources.

Hope you will visit us at: foss-for-health.org
