In the past I’ve covered a number of different free emr software programs. However, honestly I don’t think I’ve touched the surface of the various free and open source EMR software that are out there on the market.
“This is groundbreaking for several reasons: it is free, portable, and open source that even doctors can contribute to its development,” Dr. Alvin Marcelo, manager of the International Open Source Network (IOSN) Asean+3 node based in Manila, in an interview.
I wonder how many other similar EMR and EHR projects are going on in countries around the world? I’d love to hear about them if you are working on one. Also, there’s a small chance that I may begin a job working with mostly people from the Asia Pacific area and so I’ll be very interested in seeing how these open source EMR and EHR projects will affect the developing and developed nations in that area.
