Lots of people have been asking for copies of the VistA moratorium, and rather than email it to ten people, I thought I should make my copy available in public. Obviously this is bad news if your job was to develop Class III code for the VA.
The VA has recently released a moratorium in the development of Class III code. For the uninitiated, Class III code is code developed at local VA hospitals. The VA has made the decision that VistA will no longer be developed by a group of collaborators, rather, it will be centrally developed, by a single controlling entity.
