Proposal to create an "Imaging Group" in OSEHRA

Hello everybody,

I just joined OSEHRA as suggested by Dr. Seong K. Mun and Dr. Fred Prior (thank you both!). I am thrilled to join this incredible community.

Here is my first "contribution" to the group: I would like to propose the creation of an Imaging Group in OSEHRA.

After nearly a decade involved in the development of medical imaging software, I believe imaging is a rapidly growing and important part of any Healthcare IT solution.

What do you think. How do we go about it?

Looking forward to your feedback,

Jorge Cortell

The OSEHRA Support Wiki


The OSEHRA Support wiki enables the OSEHRA community to write documents collaboratively, using a simple markup language and a web browser. A single page in a wiki website is referred to as a "wiki page", while the entire collection of pages, which are usually well interconnected by hyperlinks, is "the wiki". A wiki is essentially a database for creating, browsing, and searching through information.
