Over at LMN: Live from the 2003 Fall AMIA Conference. This is Ignacio's version of the EHR session. He types faster (and has better batteries) than I do. Neither of us liked what we heard — but for different reasons, it seems.
I'm not bothered at all about the code. Open source of the code that's behind the software is simply unnecessary. Good software can be "closed source" and still be good. The key is that our data be accessible. With many EMR's the data is locked forever. It's a real problem and dates back to the age of the dinosaurs.
A key (and laudible) component of the AAFP project is that the data remain accessible.
