Apelon Announces Availability of a Completely Open Source Terminology Management

Healthcare’s growing demands for data sharing are focusing attention on interoperability techniques and technologies. Enterprises are rightly concerned that such mission-critical capabilities not be locked to proprietary applications.  Open source solutions like DTS and MySQL enable healthcare organizations to lessen dependence on proprietary software.  This reduces the cost of deploying enterprise applications, provides much more cost-effective licensing models, eases vendor-specific integration issues, and provides the ability to leverage a much broader universe of developers.

An early advocate of open source software in healthcare, Apelon made DTS open source in early 2007.  Since then the software has been downloaded by over 3500 informaticists and healthcare organizations worldwide.  Open DTS supports a wide range of commercial database platforms such as DB2, InterSystems Cache®, Oracle, and SQL Server. By adding support for open source MySQL, Open DTS users can now deploy a fully-open source terminology solution and benefit from open source cost, integration and adoption advantages.
