Let me try to explain my view again: There's basically three
areas related to health care:

1) Practice

2) Science

3) Clinical Research

Frontline doctors are interested pretty much in 1) only.
This is where GNUmed and Vista fit in.

2) is what scientist are concerned about (those that
eventually want to make doctors use new drugs etc). This is
where all the scientific applications come in.

Eventually there's a few brave doctors and scientist who
bridge the gap from the Ivory Tower of High Science to the
smelly trenches of Point of Care patient interaction. Those
want GLIF (& friends) and OpenClinica. The latter makes
aggregated patient data palatable to the scientist while the
former distills theoretical knowledge into guidelines which
then may or may not be applicable to individual patients.
