from the interoperability dept.
An IBM press release reports a software donation to the Open Healthcare Framework which is an electronic medical record interoperability platform. However, the announcement is non-specific about what was actually open-sourced: '...The software, contributed to the Eclipse Foundation's Open Healthcare Framework (OHF) project, provides a mechanism to connect isolated "islands" of information that today reside throughout the healthcare system to any Health Information Exchange (HIE). Software developers will also be able to build applications that can aggregate and sift through this information to improve healthcare delivery and research while protecting individual privacy...' SynSeer was mentioned as one of the participants. Digg this article

    Ivan Oprencak of IBM writes: If you're at the LinuxWorld conference please stop by room 310 between 12:00 - 1:00 PM to see Eclipse OHF in action. We will show OHF enabled search, retrieval, and storage of medical documents as well as interoperability using two real EMR applications: openEMR and MirrorMed.
