Dear all

We are proud to announce the release of GNU Health 1.6.3, the Free Health and Hospital Information System. This version brings major improvements in the hospital information system, both from the administrative and patient management. Here is a quick summary of the main changes :

New Features

  • Patient Nutrition management. Complex combinations that take into account therapeutics, pre-existing conditions, surgeries, lifestyles, vegetarianism and other belief-based diets.
  • Inpatient medication medication and history log.
  • New nursing module
  • Nursing roundings ( evaluations, procedures, medications ... )
  • New user profiles (doctors, nurses, clerks, ...)
  • New appointment reports
  • Improved standard security profiles
  • The translation project is now entirely done from Transifex, so the health center will install only the languages they need
  • Revised and improved look and feel, from views to icons
  • Many models datafiles ( medicaments, WHO essential meds, .. ) can be now modified from the client.
  • Improve installation scripts and Archlinux / Parabola support
