Mr. HISTalk interviews Laurent Rotival, senior vice president and general manager of the Enterprise Solutions business at GE Healthcare. Laurent discusses the next-generation product line being built in partnership with Intermountain Healthcare, which is being architected on Linux, open source and commodity hardware to enable the product to scale from community hospitals to large IDNs such as Intermountain. An architecture built on Linux enables both scale-up and scale-down by providing affordable reliability on both ends of the provider spectrum. There is no need to design an “expensive” architecture for large providers and a different “low-cost” architecture for small providers. Linux enables you to support both with the same affordable architecture. Check out the interview.
