Welcome to Linux Medical News! The purpose of this site is to facilitate, amplify and begin the process of fundamentally changing medical education and practice into a more effective, fair and humane enterprise using modern technologies. This is a site that can react to fast-breaking news using powerful publishing software that allows anyone to contribute as well as providing forums for discussion. Digg this article

Too long has medicine followed a rigid heirarchy and either scorned information technology, or gone about it in ways doomed to failure.

This site is different. Technology in all aspects of medicine is embraced and promoted. Particularly Linux and open source software. Radical, free ideas and concrete embodiments of those ideas are (within reason) welcome here as well as a brokerage for practical advice.

Linux Medical News is a collaborative effort, and cannot succeed without you the reader for support and input. You can post your own articles to this site and can engage in discussion of the articles posted. You can also scan the Internet and point out links via a posted article to sites that others may find useful or interesting. Articles are moderated by Saint.

The future is ours, it is time to make the myths.

To be clear about what this site is about:

  • This is a news site about Free and Open Source Software in Medicine.
  • This site is about Free and Open Source Electronic Health Record software.
  • This site is about Free and Open Source EHR software.

    Wonderful Idea
    by Seungjin Kim on Monday November 14, 2011 @ 05:47 PM
    I am a currently first year med student in Israel, in a school that focuses on global health. Our students have come to study medicine with the global health in mind, in hopes to practice in underserved parts of the world in one way or the other. Due to my BS in computer engineering and interest in Linux/open source/DIY hack/Arduino, I naturally wondered what is possible in the opensource community, in terms of health. And then I found this jewel of a site that culminates the current trend. If only I can find my way of contributing to this effort, it would be an amazing feat to accomplish, an adventure. So thank you, and keep the efforts up! Best, Seungjin Kim
