ENTRIES TAGGED "OSCON"
Opening up clinical trials can accelerate findings, reveal more data
of value to future trials, and–perhaps most important–make
participants feel really good about doing it. An interview with OSCon
speaker Greg Biggers.
popHealth culls quality measures from electronic health records and formats them either for convenient display–so providers can review their quality measures on the Web–or for submission to regulators who require reports on these measures.
Connecting medical devices to electronic health record systems, and the roles of open source software, regulation, and clinical improvement.
A new data conference will be co-located with OSCON in July.
This year, data comes of age at OSCON. We're announcing a new conference on data tools and infrastructure, to be co-located with OSCON in July 2011.
OSCON is returning to Portland in July 2011.

The history and accomplishments attributed to VistA, the Veterans
Administration's core administrative software, mark it as one of the
most impressive software projects in history. Still, lots of smart
people in the health care field deprecate VistA and cast doubt that it
could ever be widely adopted.
The health care technology track at the Open Source convention
touches on core areas for improvement: patient-centered care, the use of
mobile devices, administrative efficiencies, and the collection,
processing, and display of statistics to improve health care
As new problems in computing arise, new languages are being created to help tackle those problems. We want to bring together programming language creators, researchers, and enthusiasts to share goals, experiences, and challenges. We are holding the first-ever Emerging Languages Camp Wednesday, July 21st and Thursday, July 22nd at OSCON. This is a free event. Both days will be a series of talks from the language creators.
Recognizing community contribution and leadership
The O’Reilly Open Source Awards will be hosted this July at OSCON 2010 in Portland, OR. The awards recognize individual contributors who have demonstrated exceptional leadership, creativity, and collaboration in the development of Open Source Software. Past recipients for 2005-2009 include Brian Aker, Angela Byron, Karl Fogel, Pamela Jones, Bruce Momjian, Chris Messina, David Recordon, and Andrew Tridgell.
This year for the first time, O’Reilly’s Open Source convention
contains a track on health care IT. The call for
participation just went up, soliciting proposals on nine broad
areas of technology including health data exchange, mobile devices,
and patient-centered care. IT specialists and programmers across the country who have lost their employment or are just seeking new challenges will naturally be wondering what health care IT is and how they can get into it. A health care track at OSCon is, to start with, a natural way to serve our core audience.
