+ - Open Source could have saved Ontario $1 billion->

Submitted by Platinum Dragon
Platinum Dragon (34829) writes "Ontario's auditor-general released a blistering report this week detailing how successive governments threw away a billion dollars developing an integrated electronic medical record system. This CBC article highlights an open source system developed at McMaster University that is already used by hundreds of doctors in Ontario. As one of the developers points out, "we don't have very high-priced executives and consultants," some of whom cost Ontario taxpayers $2700 per day."
