Healthcare IT Vendors News!

1. IBM inks 3.3 million$ eHealth deal

Here is some niche business that IBM is starting to execute enabling sharing of diagnostic images across jurisdictions using a registry framework based on IHE XDS (Cross Enterprise Document Sharing) framework. Kudos to Quebec to act on it quickly before the Canada Health Infoway money runs out.

2. Cerner has launched healthcare development community

Here is what the PR claims,  “The uDevelop platform, modeled on the principle of open source software development, will allow the more than 2.5 million healthcare professionals who engage with Cerner® solutions to provide direct feedback on solution enhancements and to have a hands-on role in customizing and developing Cerner solutions”

In fine print, you have to be a Cerner client to be part of this community.
