Modern Healthcare: AMGA and Aventis Will Develop Data Warehouse

Thanks to Barry Herman for this story from Modern Healthcare 2001-02-12 print version: ‘…The American Medical Group Association is teaming with an international pharmaceutical giant to develop a data warehouse that could contain sensitive information on as many as 37 million Americans. The AMGA and Aventis Pharmaceuticals say they will create a national database including a wide range of medical information, from laboratory tests and diagnoses to outpatient claims and prescription-drug use…’ Wonder if they’ll be using free and open source software? Hope so.
