AIC:HR continues collaboration on Open Source technology

Dr. Seong K. Mun, director of AIC:HR, will continue to serve as president and CEO of the Open Source Electronic Health Record Agent (OSEHRA). In June 2011, AIC:HR collaborated with various partners, including the US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), to establish an open source community that would improve and enhance the utility of electronic health records. OSEHRA establishes an organized framework for all kinds of companies and creative individuals – users, developers, service providers, researchers, universities and for-profit companies – to communicate, collaborate, and share. The open source ecosystem is a transparent, rapid and safe way to accelerate progress in creating an ever improving, and highly functional EHR for the beneficiaries of VA healthcare, and more broadly, the nation as a whole.
