Tried this already, have you not heard of the National Program for IT? the massive costly failiure to harmonise everyone.

Also the NHS had its own OS in the works NHSBuntu or OSforNHS

The issue is that security is no priority, heck even IT isnt, even though if the servers were switched of and IT went home everything would grind to a magnificent halt!

Also a lot can be laid at the regulatory structure around medical devices, approval takes 10 years, and a software update re-starts the process, so what was bleeding edge when the process started, is state of the ark once approved, certified and able to be used.
