ZDnet: Interviews Larry Augustin of Medsphere

I know that this is a bit old, published August 17th, but I’ve been BUSY. ZDnet news has an interview with Medsphere CEO Larry Augustin formerly of VA Linux fame. Of note is the financial package that they’ve built for VistA: ‘…”It is our intention to build an open source project around the core of that public domain code,” Augustin said in an interview. However, the company also plans to sell proprietary software modules � for example, the original VA code can’t handle billing, so Medsphere plans to build an extension to handle that, Augustin said. “Right now that stuff is not open source.”…’ Recent discussion on the hardhats weekly conference call was about interfacing FreeB with VistA.
