  1. You are welcome thickerson! Thanks for the hint! Wow, at caBIG they have developed quite some tools. After a brief review I added it to “Others” as there are projects of nearly every category available and I suppose that these primarily make sense only in the scope of caBIG.

  2. Europ’s standards for a EHR is the EN13606. This standard is build on OpenEHR, one of the largest Open Source projects for a EHR.

    HL7 is a XML communication standard, which is not the same as a standard for a EHR… 🙂

  3. Thanks for collating this

    OpenEHR has an open source java reference implementation and open source java archetype editor.

    I also see has a clinical research oriented eclipse based workbench and SOA platform, based out of parters healthcare.

  4. Thanks for the list; but I’ve been missing “my” lab-part of the list?!
    Aren’t there any open-source laboratory-information-systems (I think there was a project called bika-lims or bika-health)?!
    And the “fitting” standard for labs: (Logical Observation Identifiers Names and Codes ).

  5. Gerhard, thanks for the hint! I did not yet add the O3 Consortium Web site to my list, as a registration is required to access the source code & binaries and this is not my understanding of being freely available.

    Do you know under which license this software is distributed? I ran several times across this tools or citations about it and it seems like it is quite well used out there …
