Former ONC Staffers Expand Open Source Technology for Information Exchange

Two former staff members of the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT have established the Alembic Foundation, which aims to expand on the agency's open source technology for interoperability, according to an organization news report.

Alembic's first project, Aurion, is an open source software project that will promote nationwide health IT interoperability in accordance with federal standards. The Aurion Project stems from the CONNECT program, built by the ONC's Federal Health Architecture under the leadership of the Alembic Foundation CEO David Riley and COO Vanessa Manchester, who previously worked within the FHA.

With the release of Aurion 4.0 in May 2011, the Alembic Foundation will assume a custodial agent role for the development efforts of a robust open community and ecosystem being built around the Aurion platform. After the release of Aurion 4.0, the Aurion community will continue to evolve the software to ensure that it remains a robust open source option for a Nationwide Health Information Network-compliant gateway.
