Texas Tech Medical School Deploys VistA

Texas Tech University Medical School will deploy a version of VistA by Document Storage Systems, Inc. According to several news reports like this one: ‘The Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center School of Medicine has begun deploying a public domain version of the Department of Veterans Affairs’ electronic health record (EHR) system developed by Document Storage Systems, according to the vendor…’ Some articles are saying that this is an open source deployment, however that may or may not be the case. The vendor, Document Storage Systems, is noted for being a proprietary vendor selling its own, not Free or Open Source Licensed, proprietary version of VistA. According to the article: ‘…The El Paso medical school, which is the company�s biggest non-VA job to date, will use the same core components of VistA as the VA does. The school also will use DSS-developed add-on modules to support departments not found in VA hospitals, such as pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology. DSS said it is also providing the school with an endocrinology software module…’
