Ingenix and Open Source in the Same Title?!

It's Friday, I have a head-cold and sore throat, and all the pressure of farm/T-ball coaching has gotten to me. So, today, I am going to let someone else do all the work.

Head over to Crossover Health, where Dr. Shreeve has picked up on an announcement from the Ingenix CEO that they will open-source their tools. I mentioned this to John Canning and his immediate response was, "Sure, open the tool set and sell the data." Gillette/Burma Shave proved the success of this model a long time ago. I, too, share his and Dr. Shreeve's cynicism (in fact, I don't think the latter is cynical enough). Time will tell, though. Fascinating read.
