Medical, the Universal Health information system, is finalist on Sourceforge 2009 Community Awards.
With over 47,000 nominations, the community has chosen 85 finalists in 12 categories. Medical is among the best 10 projects this year for government.
This is very exciting and rewarding. To be among the 10 best projects (sharing the space with projects like Open Office) shows the recognition from the community to humanitarian projects like Medical, and positions open source in health sector, an area limited to proprietary vendors until now.
I would like to thank all the doctors, biochemists and computer scientists that are working on the project (from Argentina, Belgium, India, Indonesia, Germany, USA, Uruguay… ) and to all of you who have trust our project by using it, voting it or letting others know that such project exists.
