Article Published in Federal Computer Week

I would like to call your attention to an article written by Roger Baker just published in Federal Computer Week, which was picked up by OSEHRA as a Google Alert.

The article "Open source is so much more than free code" underscores the challenges and benefits of embracing open source approaches, and it highlights how OSEHRA has used software management and community collaboration to become a leader in open source efforts.

House of Sweden Health IT Seminar

On September 22, I will be participating in a Health IT panel at the House of Sweden in connection with a visit by Sweden’s Minister for Health Care, Public Health and Sport– Mr. Gabriel Wikström.  This is a great opportunity to increase awareness of the OSEHRA Community and to expand our global connections.  I am honored to participate.

FCW Article on VA and VIstA

An article published yesterday on FCW discusses the debate about the future of VA and VA’s information system.  It mentions the 2016 OSEHRA Summit, and includes quotes from our community members.  Given the depth and breadth of health IT expertise in our community, I am sure that we will continue to be actively engaged in this debate.  See

Great Webinar on Oncology Clinical Information System

Many thanks to Arya Rasouli and his team for what was a very informative and exciting webinar on the Johns Hopkins Oncology Clinical Information System (OCIS).  Yesterday’s session attracted more than 40 participants from academia, industry and international, and the number of questions and comments was too great to discuss on the call!  As a result, we have established an OSEHRA Discussion Group for OCIS.

VistA at the Summit

Can you believe that we are less than 2 weeks from the OSEHRA Summit?  We and the open source community have had an interesting year full of changes and success stories.  Our speakers will address all of these topics, including various aspects of VistA.  Many things have been said about VistA both publically and privately in the past couple of months, so I want to point your attention to our Summit’s approach.
