Commercial Open Source RIS/PACS: The ClearCanvas Experience

Norman Young, Clinton Chau, John Adziovsky

Abstract

ClearCanvas, an open source, healthcare informatics company is currently developing an open source RIS/PACS for a large Canadian hospital. The experience thus far has shown that an emphasis on application usability, as well as professional service and support are necessary for enhancing the credibility of open source healthcare solutions. Supporting such initiatives requires a solid business model that can generate the needed revenue. A model being explored draws on multiple revenue streams, including service contracts and value added features, from both the founding organization and commercial members of the ecosystem.
