Today Siemens Healthineers announces an OpenChain Conformant compliance program, joining a widening community of organizations from all industrial sectors. Siemens Healthineers is the first company specialized in medical technology to announce conformance.
“We have been collaborating with the team from Siemens Healthineers for a while and found have found their insights and contributions useful to the community as a whole,” says Shane Coughlan, OpenChain General Manager. “The conformance announcement today marks another milestone with the formal expansion of our industry standard into the medical sector. One thing that has become clear in the last two years of standard deployment is that all sectors, and companies of all sizes, face the same fundamental challenges with respect to open source compliance. By working together diligently we have isolated an effective real world solution. I am looking forward to assisting more companies in the health ecosystem with their engagement and adoption of the key requirements of a quality open source compliance program.”
“We find the insights shared across the OpenChain community to be very useful and look forward to continuing our active participation in this project and the associated community,” says Dr. Frances Paulisch, Head of Software Initiative at Siemens Healthineers.
