openSUSE for clinics and doctorsâ practices
Launched in 2009, the openSUSE Medical project has released version 11.4 of its openSUSE variant that contains open source software designed specially for doctors' practices and clinics. The distribution includes a number of applications to manage a practice and organise electronic medical records (patient files): FreeMed, OpenEMR, FreeMedForms and GNUMed. Other applications include FreeDiams, which supports doctors in prescribing medicine, and Tempo, which displays EEG data.
More details about the release can be found in a mailing list post; information about the project is given in an openSUSE News post. openSUSE Medical 11.4 is available to download as a 32-bit DVD ISO image in the SUSE Gallery. A special repository allows the applications to be installed on normal installations of openSUSE 11.4 systems as well.
