"Hoping to save the medical industry with Open Source software,
Ignacio Valdes, programmer and M.D. extraordinaire, opts out of
greed and into salvation. For any medical student, free time is a
rare and precious commodity and Valdes chooses to use most of his
to develop and maintain both LinuxMedNews and the Journal of Open
Source Medical News."
"I have designated myself the medical Open Source cheerleader
and publicist," he says."
"Three years into his residency in the psychiatry department at
the University of Texas, Houston, there is not enough time on his
schedule to manage a development project on his own, but with his
experience building and running his own company, Lifetime Software,
he knows how important marketing is. And he knows how most
companies make the mistake of devoting the majority of their
resources to engineering instead. So he has decided to solve both
problems by brokering information about Open Source efforts to
build quality clinical computing software. This, he hopes, will
help to both publicize the products and foster a more efficient
application of engineering resources."
