VistA (not to be confused with Vista - the latest version of Windows
from Microsoft) is a Free/Open Source Integrated Healthcare Information
System that runs all hospitals and clinics under the US Veterans
Administration (VA). VistA was developed and is being actively enhanced
and maintained by a group of programmers and users at the VA known as
the "Hardhats". VistA is now being adopted by health care practices of
all kinds around the world because of its ease of use, efficiency,
strong support by the VA and others, extensibility and the natural
benefits conveyed by Open Source versus proprietary software.
Hawaii has been at the forefront of the move to transfer this technology
from its VA source to the non-VA public and private sectors and Blue
Cliff Inc, located in the Manoa Innovation Center, has been a major
contributor to this effort. Sonia Lee-Gushi is an Application
Analyst/Educator for BlueCliff's VistA-EMR and is highly regarded within
the worldwide VistA community for her knowledge and abilities.
Please join us as Sonia shows us what many regard as the future of
healthcare information systems.
