Bolton goes live with OpenEyes open source software
A million-pound open source electronic patient record has gone live in a northern NHS trust’s eye department.
Bolton NHS Foundation Trust deployed the ophthalmic OpenEyes software in January.
David Haider, consultant ophthalmologist and chief clinical information officer at Bolton, told Digital Health News that he was doing a “slow deployment”, with the EPR being used in cataracts first.
“Because we’re running from a fairly digitally immature trust, we didn’t want to do anything to fast.”
Haider said the deployment had “not been particularly painful at all”.
This is an interesting one, Snoost, a new cloud gaming service powered by Amazon AWS supports Linux. It uses Steam's in-home streaming with your own games library.
It actually launched only this month, so it is a very new service. That means there may be things that aren't quite as polished as you might hope. Things like miss-worded text can be forgiven for now, but I will still point it out though. Sadly the experience so far was not what I was expecting from a paid service.
Sumoman [Steam] is a brand new and rather hilarious puzzle platformer powered by the UNIGINE engine. It released with day-1 Linux support and I took a look.
Disclosure: Key provided by the developer before the release.
Last week I published a number of Radeon and NVIDIA Vulkan/OpenGL Serious Sam 2017 benchmarks while those curious about Intel graphics performance for the updated Serious Sam HD: The First Encounter have some data to look at today.
As expected, Planescape: Torment: Enhanced Edition [Official Site, GOG, Steam] has now been announced with a trailer and it looks like it will launch with Linux support. It will have a release on both GOG and Steam so everyone can enjoy it.
Generally, smartwatches aren't worth the time it takes to charge them.
But when Huawei handed me a review unit of their new Huawei Watch 2, which has pretty much all the tech you can stuff into a smartwatch these days, and runs the new Android Wear 2, I decided to give it a chance.
