Document Storage Systems Inc., which sells a commercialized version of the Veterans Administration’s VistA electronic health records system-- along with supporting applications for VistA--has released its Patient Search Tool Extension and Launcher.

The tool, now available via the Apache 2.0 Open Source license, enables clinicians and researchers to search an entire patient electronic record for specific free text data that might be scattered throughout the system, according to DSS. The text could include patient notes, orders, problem lists and medications, among other information.

Details on the search tool are available here, with information on Apache open source licenses here.
