Paul Richardson will give a talk for the Open Source Specialist Group (OSSG) around his recently created http://www.oshi-uk.com/ which is an expression/discussion focal point on the adoption of Open Source by the NHS.

Event URL http://ossg.bcs.org/2010/07/29/open-source-health-informatics-london-300910/

This event is free and open to all and will be held at the BCS Central London Offices, First Floor, The Davidson Building, 5 Southampton Street, London WC2E 7HA (http://www.bcs.org/upload/pdf/london-office-guide.pdf) on Thursday 30th September 2010. It will start immediately after the OSSG AGM at 1800 and is expected to finish around 2030.

Free buffet and refreshments available on the night.

To book a place to attend this event please visit http://ossg.bcs.org/2010/07/29/open-source-health-informatics-london-300910/

Paul’s objective of this meeting is to act as a rallying cry to those who are already convinced (or perhaps still slightly sceptical) of the place that Open Source software should have in UK healthcare, so that a coherent community can be established that can be empowered to spread the word, deal with the objections to open source (genuine or otherwise), and can support each other in projects and deployments.

First, as a scene-setting exercise, Paul will cover the following topics:

· his assessment of the state of readiness of open source to be applied to the UK healthcare market

· the willingness of key stakeholders to adopt open source

· dealing with objections to open source

· his proposed ‘top 10 projects’

· progress on his own open source project, an ITK (Interoperability Tool Kit) compliant middleware solution based on OpenESB

However, as this is intended to be a community building exercise, a significant proportion of the time will be spent facilitating and gaining consensus on issues such as:

· agreeing priorities

· how should we organise ourselves and communicate

· activities

· what representations we would like to make to the Department of Health
