Open Source Tools and Applications in Medical Informatics
Track Description
Several academic groups and companies are involved in developing open source software for research and production systems. These systems are improved through collaboration with the larger open source community consisting of individual developers, end users and so on. We provide an overview and a live demonstration of various open source software being used in different areas of medical informatics - research, health information systems, personal health records, interface engines, interoperability, clinical trials, EMPI and so on. We intend to educate the interested audience about our projects and invite their collaboration.
