Below is an update from IT-oLogy
While the 2015 conference was very successful – more than 850 registered – the decision has been made to postpone POSSCON until 2017. It was a tough decision to make, but a prudent one. IT-oLogy’s primary goal and focus is to deliver technology education programs, and the conference this particular year would have impacted the organization’s ability to do that in a variety of ways. As a result, the best course of action is to come back strong in the future. We apologize ahead of time for any inconvenience and hope you’ll consider supporting the event moving forward. We have always greatly appreciated the support of the community, and we sincerely hope it continues. In addition, please take a look at IT-oLogy’s programming and consider getting involved.

In 2010 the Medfloss website was founded with the mission to provide a comprehensive and structured overview of Free/Libre and Open Source Software (FLOSS) projects in the domain of health IT. An open and interactive platform was established where people can add, rank and comment projects.
Considering the actual results the mission is fulfilled. Medfloss.org currently hosts:
– 315 medical FLOSS projects that can be browsed by application type, enterprise function, standard and popularity
– 103 companies and other institutions that are offering professional service for specific FLOSS projects
– 270 references to scientific publications about the utilization of FLOSS in health care
– a detailed overview of past and future FLOSS events like the Med-e-Tel 2015 Open Source Village or MEDINFO 2015 Workshop: Free/Libre/Open Source Software on eHealth toward universal health coverage
Our cordial thanks goes to all the contributors that already made and hopefully will continue to make use of the open content concept by revising/extending existing information or adding new content!
