 Hospital Case Study of OSS

Linux Med News brings us: Hospital Case Study of OSS Use (Actual article is in PDF format - Noel).

"This study describes the implementation of open source software in a large Irish public sector organization, Beaumont Hospital. The findings reveal a radical shift in open source deployment from invisible horizontal infrastructure systems to highly visible vertical applications. The case study describes the implementation of these systems, the difficulties encountered, and also the benefits in terms of astonishing cost savings of *13m over 5 years."
