gnuhealth Documentation

Some Fossies usage hints in advance:

  1. To see the Doxygen generated documentation please click on one of the items in the steelblue colored "quick index" bar above or use the side panel at the left which displays a hierarchical tree-like index structure and is adjustable in width.
  2. If you want to search for something by keyword rather than browse for it you can use the client side search facility (using Javascript and DHTML) that provides live searching, i.e. the search results are presented and adapted as you type in the Search input field at the top right.
  3. Doxygen doesn't incorporate all member files but just a definable subset (basically the main project source code files that are written in a supported language). So to search and browse all member files you may visit the Fossies gnuhealth-3.8.0.tar.gz contents page and use the Fossies standard member browsing features (also with source code highlighting and additionally with optional code folding).

GNU Health HMIS: Libre Hospital Management and Health Information System
The GNU Health HMIS provides the following functionality:

#. **Hospital Management Information System (HMIS)**
#. **Electronic Medical Record (EMR)**
#. **Health Information System (HIS)**
#. **Laboratory Information System (LIS)**

The Hospital and Health Information System component (HMIS) from GNU Health (GH) 
provides over 40 standard-based packages (primary care, obstetrics & gynecology,
pediatrics, surgery, lims, genetics, diagnostic imaging, dentisstry, reporting...)
to fit your institution needs. The GH HMIS combines the socioeconomic determinants of
health with state-of-the-art technology in bioinformatics and clinical genetics. 

The HMIS manages the internal processes of a health institution, such as 
financial management, billing, stock management, pharmacies or labs (LIMS). 

The GH HMIS is part of the GNU Health project, the **Libre digital health ecosystem**.

The GNU Health project combines the daily medical practice with state-of-the-art 
technology in bioinformatics and genetics. It provides a holistic approach 
to the  person, from the biological and molecular basis of disease to 
the social and environmental determinants of health.

This component is ready to integrate in the **GNU Health Federation**, which
allows to interconnect heterogeneous nodes and build large federated health 
networks across a region, province or country.
