White paper: Open source software in the health and social care market

This paper answers many of the fears over open source software, such as the potential for chaotic development and risks around safety and security. It supports the NHS drive to encouraging hospitals and other NHS trusts to consider open source technology when looking at software solutions.

“With open source software, it is this collective aggregation and pooling of knowledge, skills and software engineering from across the community that enables the product to be developed more quickly and used more widely. As with the sharing of healthcare knowledge in the Hippocratic Oath, the users and developers of open source software are all contributing to the greater good.”
