Midland Memorial Uses Open Source and Red Hat

Midland Memorial Hospital, a 400-bed hospital in Midland, Tex., uses Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Medsphere to provide a complete, robust electronic medical record solution. Medsphere provides commercial support for the open source VistA EMR system that was originally developed by the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Philip Longman wrote a great article about VistA in 2005 that’s well worth a read. Midland Memorial has deployed the Medsphere system on top of Red Hat Enterprise Linux for stability, knowing that Red Hat can be counted on to provide world-class support for the hospital. Since deployment, Midland Memorial has never experienced an unanticipated failure with Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
