Play โ€ข 53 min
Open source has permeated much of the software industry. What about health care? This highly regulated and important industry might seem to be the domain of huge specialized software companies.

On this episode, Fred Kingham is here to introduce us to a project called OPAL. It was born out of NHS Hack Days in the UK and is a full-stack web framework for building health care applications. It's based on Django and has a ton of interesting features as a framework in general.
