Here is a piece co-authored by me published in the Guardian Healthcare Network on open source in the NHS.

In my view the NHS would benefit greatly from greater use of open source, standards and data, according to the creators of the award-winning Open Me project:

“The NHS technology environment could be described as a giant hairball – a Gordian knot of past policies, established practices, new initiatives and government objectives and an ever changing landscape of opportunity from new technology. Openness, in all its many forms, offers a way to escape from the hairball.”
