POSSCON is hosting All Things Open in downtown Raleigh this fall. If you like and work with open source/open tech/the open web there will be no better place on earth to be October 22 & 23.
POSSCON has cancelled their 2014 conference.
Join the world’s top developers, technologists and decision makers as we explore open source and the open web in the enterprise. Two days of keynotes, talks, tutorials and networking opportunities in Raleigh and the Research Triangle area.
OSCON will once again have a healthcare track this year. The event is in Portland, OR on July 25-29. The information on healthcare is below:
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.

Health Information Technology (HIT) Leadership Summit
November 9, 2010
8:00 AM until 5:00 PM (Registration Opens at 7:30 AM)
Program will examine Georgia’s leadership in healthcare information technology and how we will build and sustain our premier Healthcare IT workforce
The Georgia Department of Economic Development, Metro Atlanta Chamber, and TAG Health have announced that they will jointly host the Health Information Technology (HIT) Leadership Summit on November 9, 2010. This event, which will run from 8:00 AM until 5:00 PM, will examine the national spotlight on healthcare, available federal funding, current economic conditions and the urgent need for jobs in Georgia. This critical event will also provide an opportunity to showcase Georgia’s HIT market and career growth in one of the country’s fastest growing industries.
Georgia ranks as the leading state for total HIT revenues according to the Healthcare Informatics HCI-100 list. Over the past decade, Georgia has attained the premier nationwide leadership position as an HIT cluster. This notable achievement is due to the vast assets of the state’s numerous HIT corporations and healthcare providers, served and supported by the diverse resources of multiple companies located in Georgia. Another vital component of this recognition is the highly trained professional HIT workforce provided by nationally prominent university medical schools, technical colleges and other training programs throughout Georgia.
The primary purpose of the November 9th event is to unite business community leaders, healthcare providers and educators to further advance Georgia as the national leader in HIT. The specific focus of the event is to address current and future industry requirements necessary to expand, equip and sustain the professional workforce required to maximize HIT growth in Georgia.
