Health of the Source


Mirth is basically the default interoperability engine. Just as Apache is the default web-server.

ClearHealth, and OpenMRS are making improvements at a furious rate, and they are not the only good projects in the space.

We are getting closer and closer to having FOSS as first choice, and proprietary as second option.

  1. Consensus. I usually use that word instead of collaboration. Decisions are made by consensus in an open source world. You start from where you agree and work outward, rather than starting from where you disagree and working inward.

  2. I agree decisions by consensus, but progress by collaboration, coordination and constructive competition.
