OpenVista CIS 1.0 RC2 Description:
OpenVista CIS is a Gtk# EHR for interfacing with VistA based systems (Medsphere OpenVista, VA's VistA, etc.) OpenVista CIS is a rewrite of the Department of Veteran Affairs' Computerized Patient Record System (CPRS) in Gtk#. The focus is on using a modern language, internationalization, and cross-platform support. There are two major components to OpenVista, a client (Medsphere OpenVista CIS, commonly referred to just as CIS, OpenVista CIS, or OpenVista Client) and a middleware component (Medsphere OpenVista Bridge). The Bridge handles doing raw RPC communication with the VistA Broker and provides a SOAP (currently broken) and Binary Remoting interface to the client (the client uses one or the other for a given connection). The Bridge is meant to be run on a server (either one running VistA itself, or a separate machine), while CIS runs on a client machine (any machine with a .NET environment and Gtk# available).
