OpenVistA Available Now

The Pacific Telehealth & Technology Hui (Hui) is pleased to announce the release of OpenVista (TM). Based on the Department of Veterans Affairs robust CPRS-VistA� system made available to the public through FOIA, OpenVista is a fully integrated, enterprise-wide healthcare information system. The Veterans Health Administration (VHA), the largest, centrally directed, healthcare system in the U.S., has developed and used the CPRS-VistA system for more than 20 years. The Linux-based OpenVista application includes multiple components of the “core” CPRS-VistA system, including patient registration and tracking, scheduling, pharmacy,
laboratory and electronic medical record modules.

Further information is available on SourceForge and the Hui website:

The OpenVista software and documentation can be downloaded from the Hui
website. Additional documentation and software will be uploaded to the Hui
website next week. Please register on the Hui website so that we can begin
to track statistics on the number of people using or evaluating OpenVista.

In the near future, there are plans to put the OpenVista software and
documentation into a version control system on SourceForge.
