Open Source

Healthcare is open. We’re sharing our code with the world.

Open Source refers to something that can be modified and shared because its design is publicly and freely accessible. We recognise open source as the right fit with healthcare. We know its the right thing to do.

Open Source has 3 key virtues

  • Unconstrained innovation – ideas and ambitions can be shared by folk who are oceans apart
  • Transparent credibility -allowing immediate detailed scrutiny immediately boosts credibility
  • Decentralized control – amendments and improvement can come from the bottom up
