OHNews Weekly Summary - 10/05/2013

October 5, 2013-The following is a brief listing of some of the hot news items, selected news clips, feature stories, calendar events, and blogs posted on Open Health News (OHNews) over the past week that we believe will be of interest to our readers across the U.S. and around the world.

Some of the key themes running through the news this week involved:  (1) Startup of the 'open' Health Insurance Exchanges (HIX) in the U.S. as the Affordable Care Act (ACA), also known as Obamacare, moves into the next stage of nationwide implementation; and (2) Major IT companies embracing open source are competing much more effectively in the 21st century marketplace, e.g. Intel, Apple, Samsung, Google, Amazon, Facebook, Red Hat, etc.; and (3) Lots of continuing talk about VistA and other open source EHR systems.
