I'm a medical student if that counts :)...I don't know if I can be of much help, as I don't have any real programming skills or anything of that sort.

I'm really not sure yet. I'm a second year, and right now I'm just worried about my upcoming board exam!

well... we could do some program testing :D


I was covering Linux for Clinics project in Ubuntu a while ago, but last I looked they switched to PCLinuxOS...


Don't have the time to look around what they came up with lately, but will do so in the future...


btw... I've finished my studies 2 years ago.... got the last part of my state licencing exam in 2 weeks... and than starting to actually work :) plan to specialise in radiology...


My dad is a gynecolologist with a private practice and I'd like to set him up with a linux computer with a nice database for patients, lab results etc etc... as well as scheduling for patient exams etc...

and related fields.

It seems the Linux for Clinics project is still on for Ubuntu...reading through a few posts it appears that they did consider PCLOS in the past, but now have settled on Ubuntu as the base :):

A section for Linux for Clinics just popped up on the Ubuntu forums recently:

http://ubuntuforums.org/forumdisplay.php?f=233

Here's their main website:

http://linuxforclinics.org/

They also claim a testing ISO should be available within the next few days:

Hi

Post by karlox » Tue Apr 03, 2007 3:59 pm

I was having the same interest , specially becouse i will put a new office so i will need medical software.
Since i tasted linux mint i really don't want to go back to Windows, i have some programming skills , specially in pascal and visual basic 6 ( i'm very good with vb ) but linux its another world.
So , i can help with a project.
Another thing. I remember having saw a program in linux for a medical office but i dont remember the url. so i will be looking for him these days.

Well... posting some years later :) I am now a radiology specialist

looking for:

1. PACS / DICOM vierwer for linux
2. RIS for linux
3. Some kind of HIS / patient management software that I might use in a small private practice...

I have tested DCM4CHEE as a PACS server and it works great if anyone is interested :)
Windows is extremely fast after a fresh install. If you want to make it stay that way: - don't use it.

I don't have experience with any of these, but http://linuxmednews.com/ sounds like a news site for you to follow! It also links to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_o ... e_software

Perhaps you already know these, but else it may be useful :wink:

For any service practice, medial or otherwise, all you need is a scheduler, a way to manage customer/client/patient records (data), and possibly an online (web/blog based customer/client/patient ) appointment maker (calendar/schedular (internally for staff)

For more comprehensive management/customer relations you could use some type of erp
