Midland Memorial Hospital, a 400-bed hospital in Midland, TX, uses Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Medsphere to provide a complete, robust electronic medical record solution. Medsphere provides commercial support for the open source VistA EMR system that was originally developed by the Department of Veterans Affairs. Philip Longman wrote a great article about VistA in 2005 that’s well worth a read. Midland Memorial has deployed the Medsphere system on top of Red Hat Enterprise Linux for stability, knowing that Red Hat can be counted on to provide world-class support for the hospital. Since deployment, Midland Memorial has never experienced an unanticipated failure with Red Hat Enterprise Linux. For more information about Red Hat solutions for healthcare, visit us online.
