DSS to Host Educational Pavilion Panel Session at HIMSS on Open Source Technology

DSS, Inc., a leading provider of software, integration, installation,

project management, training, support and development of VistA, will be

hosting an educational panel session on the benefits and importance of

open source technology in healthcare at the HIMSS Annual Conference &

Exhibition in Atlanta on Tuesday, March 2, from 4:15–5:15 p.m. in room


The session will highlight the different viewpoints of industry thought

leaders, who include Alesha Adamson, director, open source solutions –

healthcare for Misys; William (Bill) C. Grosso, president of Spectron

Corp.; and Skip McGaughey, executive director of Open Health Tools.

These individuals who bring extensive experience in the healthcare IT

industry and in working with open source technology will discuss their

thoughts on open source electronic health records (EHRs), current

industry trends, how these EHRs will meet meaningful use standards and

support the ARRA, and the major benefits of the technology that sets it

apart from other commercial EHRs.

“As a provider of open source EHRs and supporting technology and

services, we feel it is imperative to educate healthcare organizations

on the importance and benefits of open source applications so that they

better understand how it might fit their organization’s unique needs,”

said Mark Byers, president and CEO of DSS, Inc. “We look forward to

sharing Alesha, Bill and Skip’s expertise with HIMSS attendees and

creating an interactive discussion around open source EHRs.”
