Open Source Goes vertical
Bernard Golden was one of the panel moderators at the LWE Health Care Day. He did a very nice write up of his panel on his blog. In his blog Bernard looks more at the flow of VC capital and start up companies. I think a more reasonable short term model will be to get some support from partnerships of existing large open source players (e.g. the system vendors) and the large health care integrators, hopefully working directly with customers and maybe some new VC companies to help fill out some niches. The real goal here is to build a community which can help address the problems of IT availability in Health Care, not just a few new, smaller companies.
