If you're browsing the web looking for sites about open source healthcare, here are five I found interesting. There are a ton of sites out there, and I tried to stay away from those that talked strictly about software--instead focusing on those that tackled the issues in open source ways beyond technology.

Bonus: The Dana Blankenhorn blog at ZDNet Healthcare is also a great resource: http://healthcare.zdnet.com/

No list like this is complete without Fred Trotter http://www.fredtrotter.com/. I have long relied upon him as a source. He has been in the trenches.

He would probably insist that no such list is complete without Scott Shreeve, http://scottshreeve.blogspot.com/ a co-founder of Medsphere.

And speaking of Medsphere, the open source implementation of VistA most people know best is WorldVista http://www.worldvista.org/

Our own blogroll is also subject to constant updating, so check back regularly.

... just to add another link that could be useful in this context. The web site was launched short after this post had appeared:

http://www.medfloss.org.

Its mission statement reads like this:

Medfloss.org should provide a comprehensive and structured overview of Free/Libre and Open Source Software (FLOSS) projects for the health care domain. Moreover it should offer an open content platform to foster the exchange of ideas, knowledge and experiences about these projects.

You are welcome to add new projects or update/complete existing ones. At the moment there are already 178 projects and counting ...

Best regards,

Holger
