mygnuhealth 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 mygnuhealth-1.0.5.tar.gz contents page and use the Fossies standard member browsing features (also with source code highlighting and additionally with optional code folding).


MyGNUHealth: The GNU Health Personal Health Record (PHR)

MyGNUHealth is the GNUHealth Personal Health Record application for desktop and mobile devices that integrates with the GNU Health Federation.



The easiest way to get MyGNUHealth is by installing the package from your favorite operating system / distribution. Many operating system distributions already ship MyGNUHealth. Using the OS package is the best way to keep the latest version of MyGNUHealth installed.

In the case that your distribution does not ship yet MyGNUHealth, you can do a local installation with pip.

MyGNUHealth depends on both Kirigami2 and PySide2 to be installed at a system level, and will not properly work otherwise. Using the system's package manager will be enough to install those dependencies keeping in mind the required versions on the system:

  • PySide2 5.15+
  • Python 3.6+

After installing those dependencies on the system, you can install MyGNUHealth via pip:

$ pip install --user --upgrade MyGNUHealth

(Keep in mind some systems might have pip3 instead of pip)


MyGNUHealth is intended for Libre operating systems. (BSD, GNU/Linux..) It uses the Qt and Kirigami frameworks, and can be installed in desktops (such as XFCE, KDE Plasma, GNOME..) and mobile devices (e.g., PinePhone).



The development of MyGNUHealth resides on GNU Savannah (

Tasks, bugs and mailing lists will be on , for development.

General discussion is done at mailing list.
