The Aims of the Linux For Clinics Project
The Linux For Clinics (LFC) Project consists of a team of people who have a common interest in health, medicine, humanity and free and open source software (FOSS). Our team represents a community that shares the common ideals of aiding mankind and treating everyone with respect so that they will treat others in kind. This philosophy is represented by the African word ‘UBUNTU’ which means ‘Humanity Towards Others’.
A fairly detailed article entitled “VistA Electronic Health Record (EHR) System: The Market Today and Tomorrow” was recently published in Virtual Medical Worlds. See the article here.
April 2, 2007, Miami Florida: Empower Med, Inc. announces the immediate release of Ultimate EMR on Sourceforge.net and Plone.org under the GNU General Public License. Ultimate EMR is the first Plone(tm) based, full-featured, web-enabled Electronic Medical Record software.
According to company President Eddy Augsten: “A major gap has been filled. This release ends the lack of good Electronic Medical Record software in the Python/Zope/Plone universe. Ultimate EMR is based on Plone, a world-class content management system. Our customers benefit from the efforts of thousands of developers worldwide while getting all the specific and comprehensive medical applications they need to run a practice. We offer unbeatable value.”
