e-MDs to Release Medication Database to Healthcare Community

This link courtesy of Nancy Anthracite. E-MD’s is announcing that they may open-source their drug database by mid-July: ‘…The company is currently in discussions with major medical organizations and the Open Source Software Initiative (OSSI) regarding adoption and maintenance of the database. Depending on the outcomes of those discussions, e-MDs hopes to have the database generally available for download from e-MDs or a hosting entity by mid July. As currently planned, e-MDs’ staff of pharmacists will continue to maintain the database and validate new entries until such time as it is officially adopted by one of these sponsoring organizations…’ Then again, Drugref.org has had an effort like this for a substantial period of time.
