HealthCamp: “Making the Case for Open Source Software in Continuing Medical Education”
My business partner, Ezra Wolfe, and I had the pleasure of presenting at HealthCamp, a conference dedicated to exploring Web 2.0 and social media in health care. Our presentation entitled “Making the Case for Open Source Software in Continuing Medical Education” was well received.
Our presentation focused on:
- Discussing the role of open source vs. proprietary technologies in the management and administration of CME.
- The ability to focus on innovation within CME technology.
- Our work to combine two industry-leading technology platforms for CME: Drupal Content Management System and Moodle Learning Management System. The combine integrated software platform now comprises our EthosCE platform.
- And, a case study describing how we use Drupal and Moodle to consolidate CME administration, consolidate multiple databases, and reduce production by 65%.
Overall, the conference was a great success and we are very excited about the role of Drupal and Moodle within the health care community.
