POSSCON 2011

Although I was unable to attend the first day of events due to a conflicting meeting in Atlanta (TAG – Georgia Technology Summit) I did manage to attend the after hours party and an impromptu “Birds of a Feather” discussion on the NIH challenge of taking a developed product “open source”.  Many options were presented including the Drupal and Apache models.

Some of the highlights of Day Two (Thursday)

The Synergy Between Open Source and Healthcare – A great history of Anesthesia system development and implementation at Duke.

Healthcare Panel Discussion – The panel contained all M.D.’s (something you never see at open source meetings) and was a great opportunity to get perspectives from  practicing ,  government, academic, and commercial physicians.

Alembic Foundation – A background on the new foundation which will carry the CONNECT project forward.

The Development & Growth of the OpenEMR Project – An overview of the project history and current status (Certification under way).

 

Thank you again for the great job organizing the event and finding quality speakers.   I look forward to another healthcare track next year.
