Misys releases components of proprietary source code to open source community

Misys Healthcare Systems : 08 February, 2008  (New Product)
Misys is to release components of proprietary source code to the open source community at the Southern California Linux Expo (Scale) currently taking place in Los Angeles, USA.
The Southern California Linux Expo is the first conference that Misys has appeared in the open source arena.

“In October 2007, we announced our intention to release the Misys Connect Healthcare solution to the open source community and now we’re delivering on our promise,” said Bob Barthelmes, executive vice president and general manager of the newly created Open Source Solutions division at Misys. “We’ve been focusing on forming partnerships that will (eventually) advance the collaborative development and quality of new products and reduce the price of software. We hope to improve healthcare delivery. That’s our goal,” said Barthelmes.

To lead the company’s vision, Misys has chosen former IBM executive and healthcare business developer Tim Elwell to position Misys at the nucleus of the healthcare open source development debate. “Working with the open source community will require a leader who has integrity and supports the open source requirement of transparency and who can lead as well as support a community of innovators in an important attempt to improve healthcare delivery. Tim Elwell will excel in this role,” said Barthelmes.

Under the direction of new development director Ryan Bloom, Misys plans to release additional code and product roadmaps in the Spring. Misys also plans to work with the open source community to attack the complex issues of systems interoperability. As a founder of the Apache Portable Runtime project and a major contributor to the Apache HTTPd 2.0 project, Bloom brings solid open source credentials to the Misys team.

Misys will also demonstrate the utility of the Open Connect product later this month at Healthcare’s Information Management Systems Society (HIMSS) conference in Orlando, Florida, USA.
