Atos dont write computer programs as such and in fact most of the software they use started off as "Open source" software :) and they tweak it ;)

open source is good and cheap too, of course the stuff they use on dwp medicals is tweaked in a way seems strange :silly:

hold on, if ATOS use open source software, then that should incluse LIMA. if thats the case, they can't stop us having a copy

People have tried FOI requests for LIMA software, but the government regards it as commercially sensitive and therefore something they can withold.

i know, i tried myself. but they then told me it's server based not on the computers that the medic uses.

but, if it's open source, they have to publish the code for it somewhere.

it's the condition of using open source

the code is open software but what they do with it is not. better way is to try to get some of the US disability insurance software :)
