Call for Free/Open Source Deployment Count by November 5th

The un-official, Draft 7 of the upcoming American Medical Informatics Association Open Source
Working Group white paper to be voted on November 9th-11th can be found here. Again it will be voted on for ratification on November 9th-11th or so. Action is needed on your part to answer the question: If open source is so great why is no one using it? There is no aggregate data that I can find to counter this opinion. If you know of a Free/Open Source EHR/EMR deployment and could please send three pieces of information on each deployment that you have by Wednesday November 5th: General Location, software version and most importantly NUMBER OF PATIENTS IN SYSTEM. This paper could have national impact with this data. Please respond by email to if you are able to obtain this data.
