OpenEMed / News: Recent posts


A new open source implementation of the HL7 CTS Vocabulary service with support also for the OMG LQS/TQS terminology service has been checked into CVS. We should have a release version of this pretty soon. It leverages the excellent LexGrid work of Mayo but doesn't require an SQL database to run.
