John Halamka, the CIO of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC), has aggressively adopted Red Hat Enterprise Linux to reduce costs while improving system availability and reliability. Check out our interview with John and the case study on how BIDMC is using Red Hat solutions to help improve care for its patients.

John’s blog is also worth visiting. He doesn’t seem to sleep and he shares some wonderful insights about life as a healthcare CIO.

Red Hat will be telling the BIDMC story and others at HIMSS08, February 24-28, 2008 in Orlando, along with our partners AMD, DLT Solutions and Vivat. Stop by our booth (#4771) and learn more about BIDMC and others that are finding success in the healthcare space with Red Hat. We’ll also be donating One Laptop Per Child laptops and visitors to our booth will be able to vote on which country will receive our donated laptops.
