Open source for the medical field: A comprehensive list

If you're in the medical field and were hoping to save some money, here's a list of leading open-source projects for medical professionals.

My father is a doctor, and isn't known for his technical prowess, so perhaps this list of 100 open-source projects geared toward medical professionals won't help him. Think of all the money you could save, Dad!

Actually, this sort of software will never appeal to people like my father, but he's not the one who buys software for his clinic, anyway. It's the system integrator specializing in the medical field who need this software, and who can make great margin gains by pushing open-source medical software like MedSphere to hospitals, clinics, etc.
