Watch our two guest speakers from Boston’s Children hospital share from the Red Hat Summit 2024 stage, the impact Red Hat AI and open source solutions are having in the field diagnostic imaging.

The creating ChRIS journey

It all started when a team at Boston Children's Hospital had an idea for how technology could improve patient care. This is a story about vision, determination, and how an open source platform has the potential to transform medicine as we know it.

Chapter 1

The challenge

Radiologists spend hours looking through images every day, which means they have less time to interpret findings and treat patients. This was the reason for creating ChRIS.

Chapter 2

The cloud

Once the team at Boston's Children's Hospital got their idea off the ground, they realized they'd need greater computing power. Enter the Massachusetts Open Cloud.

Chapter 3

The community

ChRIS needs plug-ins so users can access this data with the push of a button. Watch how the open source community is building hundreds of plug-ins and learn how you can get involved.


Designing ChRIS

Máirín "Mo" Duffy is a principal interaction designer at Red Hat. She's always been passionate about UX because of its potential to help people—but it was a sudden life event that inspired her to work on ChRIS.

Massachusetts Open Cloud

MOC (Mass Open Cloud) is a public cloud based on the model of an Open Cloud Exchange, and supports ChRIS.


ChRIS and the power of open source

Projects like ChRIS remind us why open source is so important: When code is freely available for all to see, passionate people can contribute their ideas and make a real impact.
