Room 310Healthcare Day Wiki

Join us at the Linux World Conference & Expo first ever Healthcare Day and become part of the force that is re-shaping the healthcare IT landscape.

Learn from industry peers about the issues and driving forces behind the growing use of open solutions throughout healthcare. OSDL has created a compelling program that will provide essential information on how Open Source Software and Open Standards are being developed and deployed by innovators throughout the healthcare industry.

Healthcare Day will:

Enable developers and integrators with experience in developing/porting/integrating applications for the Open Source platform to share, learn, and/or begin the process.

Develop a community of health IT organizations, to collaborate, learn, and collectively promote Open Source solutions and standards.

The agenda includes real world application demos, deployment case studies, interactive discussions and a close up look into the emerging revolution of open solutions and standards for the next generation of healthcare.
