VAPALS-ELCAP Open Source Project Group

Early Lung Cancer Screening, when used correctly, is a cost effective way to reduce lung cancer treatment costs and save lives. I-ELCAP has developed their own software to track the information needed for their research. This project group will develop an interface between VistA and the I-ELCAP software package, and then build a VistA version of the I-ELCAP software to improve performance and integration with existing clinical work-flows.

The project group will lead an open, collaborative development effort, and provide an opportunity for community participation in the software development life cycle. The resulting code will be licensed as open source under the Apache License Version 2.0 and placed in the OSEHRA repository.
