2009 Pizzigati Prize for Public Interest Computing Awarded to Darius Jazayeri
Date:4/28/2009

Developer Receives $10,000 Prize for Creation of Free Medical Record System Used by Health Clinics around the World

SAN FRANCISCO, April 28 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The $10,000 Antonio Pizzigati Prize for Software in the Public Interest has been awarded to Darius Jazayeri, a 31-year-old software developer whose work has made an outstanding contribution to the public interest sector and ongoing efforts for positive social change. Darius Jazayeri will be awarded today for his creation of OpenMRS, at NTEN's 2009 Nonprofit Technology Conference. OpenMRS is an open source software application that health clinics and hospitals on five continents are now using to keep, share, and track medical record data. Resource-poor communities around the globe have seen significant improvements to their medical care due to the adoption of Jazayeri's application.

The Pizzigati Prize honors individuals who, in the spirit of open source computing, fashion exceptional applications that help nonprofits become more effective in their work to make the world a better place. Tides -- partner to forward-thinking philanthropists, foundations, activists and organizations -- hosts the prize selection process.

"Darius Jazayeri has shown a deep-seated personal commitment to the ideals behind the Pizzigati Prize," notes Diana Chavez, the Tides Foundation philanthropic associate who coordinates the prize competition. "His work dramatically demonstrates just how powerful an impact open source computing can have on people's daily lives and we are thrilled to announce that he is the third annual winner of the prize."

Jazayeri began work on OpenMRS four years ago as the lead software developer at Partners in Health, a Boston nonprofit that's working globally to provide a preferential option for the poor in health care. Partners in Health, teaming up with the South Africa
