In this episode, we’re excited to bring you a conversation with Watson Health’s Lead Coding Architect, Dixon Whitmire. Dixon is here to give us the details on the open source project Linux For Health, the aim of which is to be the reference implementation for healthcare transactions.

Dixon digs into healthcare transaction technology, how patients and healthcare workers interact with health data, and how an open source project like Linux for Health breaks down the silos of different standards and organizations. Along the way, he describes how changes to the software can have immediate real world benefits for anyone who needs access to health records, a requirement that has only grown in urgency in the shadow of a global pandemic.

If you’re working in — or thinking of using — an open source environment and you have an interest in the way health records are accessed and shared, you won’t want to miss this discussion.
