A significant platform for medical computing is the PalmPilot(tm) Personal Digital Assistant. It is probably the defacto standard among health-care workers judging by the depth of sites like PDAMD.com. Gregory E. Jeansonne, MS III has a review of patient tracking software for medical students and others. Ranging from $2250 (GregE says NO WAY!) to $5 with his choice coming in at $35. This range illustrates that software quality in medicine is frequently unrelated to price. An open-source patient tracking project for Palm(tm) would be something. However, the existence of a project like this is unknown to LinuxMedNews.
