that Senator Rockefeller has proposed a bill that promotes
open-source health care software.
"Thanks, in large part, to a little company called Standard Oil, Open Source isn't necessarily the first term to come to mind when one thinks of the name Rockefeller. However, that's exactly the term Mr. Rockefeller's great-grandson, Senator Jay Rockefeller, is pushing in Congress attached to a bill to strengthen Open Source in health-care.
The proposal in question, The Health Information Technology (IT) Public Utility Act of 2009
(Senate Bill 890), is the latest in a series of Open-Source-in-Health-IT bills aimed at taking health-care or at least health records digital, one way or another.
