| Joseph Dal Molin , one of founders of the WorldVistA project and a speaker in the health care track at the upcoming OSCON convention, recently spoke with me about the Department of Veterans Affairs’ historic VistA system and its expansion as an open source effort.
Specific topics covered in the 31-minute audio interview include:
- How VistA evolved within a feedback loop.
- How organizations outside the Department of Veterans Affairs use VistA.
- How WorldVistA and other groups in the VistA community adapt the system to civilian needs and health care requirements.
- A look at some of the tools for developing with VistA.
