Open Access to a Professional Level Point-Of-Care Medical Summary

I see an open access point-of-care medical summary as having the potential to do for medicine what open access journals have already done for science. I have published in PLOS Medicine a call out to all those who believe in the goal of health information for all to seriously consider moving their content to an open license (note not the same as free access) http://journals.plos.org/plosmedicine/article?id=10.1371/journal.pmed.1001868

PLOS has also indicated their desire to be involved in this initiative. http://journals.plos.org/plosmedicine/article?id=10.1371/journal.pmed.1001870 If all those in the field of getting high quality information out to those who need it most work together we can accomplish this goal.
