Codeweavers, VistA Institute, Medsphere
Ignacio Valdes writes "VistA is the Veterans Administration medical software infrastructure that is in the public domain and considered to be Free and Open Source. It has a large community working on the software to make it useful in the private sector. The 12th VistA community meeting was held in Boston Massachutsetts April 7th-10th, 2005. The event was organized by WorldVistA and hosted by Intersystems. There were many goings on at the event, including installation workshops, histories of VistA and MUMPS as well as major announcements by the Pacific Telehealth and Technology Hui of the formation of the VistA Institute and Medsphere's enhancements to the VA fileman. Aric Stewart from Codeweavers was there working on problems of using CPRS on Wine (recently reported by Linux Medical News). Read more for the Complete Story."
