I agree a generic linux distribution packaged with vertical apps may be a hard sell. 

I think there is merit to preconfigure a slew of the open source applications for the healthcare community to make it easy for them to load a distribution and then play with each application.

It would be nice to show that we can play better together than commercial systems.  Each of the systems are fairly unique in their appeal to different users and we should try to complement each other.

Brotay can provide our own Debian packaging resources - in fact Cam has already setup a few DVDs that are plug and play distributions ready out the box with PatientOS.

This may be the difficult part. EMRs are vertical apps.
Those that are backed by commercial entities do reach
"their" users via means other than generic Linux distros so
they don't see the need to "get into" any.

We do have that need, however, because we need to reach many
users far and wide because we don't have a well-defined
local user group.
