Open Source EMR vs. Commercial EMR

Your first time here? Welcome, I'm glad you've dropped in.... David Soul (aka Bricoleur)

In this thread on CanadianEMR Dr. Brookstone initiates the debate with the comment:

If open source EMR is the answer, how do we
achieve a critical mass of end user/developers who have the skill set
and time to ensure the ongoing development of the EMR, particularly as
the needs and demands of the end user increase with the growing numbers
of interfaces to labs, diagnostic imaging and hospital systems? I have
visited some open EMR user forums and even as a tech savvy physician, I
have difficulty understanding the technical jargon relating to
implementation and system debugging.”
