  McKesson Corp. Switches to Linux
Medical Open Source Development Posted by I. Valdes on Monday March 22, 2004 @ 11:20 PM

Pretty major endorsement of Free and Open Source Software in medicine according to this article: McKesson Corp. of San Francisco, the world's largest seller of health care management products and services, switched its "most important customer-facing application" to an open source network run by Linux, according to Chief Information Officer William Rachmiel. Now if they'd only advertise on Linux Medical News life would be grand :-) Thanks to Tim Cook for this article.

    BTW, the title should read "McKesson"... :) This is pretty interesting news. I wonder if there are any plans for them to start porting their clinical apps over the Linux...
