The future of open source in health IT
Fred Trotter is easy to recognize; he’s a tall man with an equally big presence. Whether he’s sporting his signature wild shock of blond hair or has shaved it bald as he does once a year or so, he can’t be missed in a crowd. Any place where open source, big data, and healthcare-oriented people are gathered, you are likely to find him and his crew.
He’s a frequent speaker at OSCON and was recently a panelist at the SXSW MedTech Conference, which is where I caught up with him to ask about his passion for open source and health care related data.
