  • Any Information on Freemed?

    Does anybody know if the Freemed project is still active/going forward? Also,is anyone familiar with any individuals/physicians/groups that are successfully using Freemed? I downloaded the package and set it up. It seems pretty cool and extensive. Besides its supposed to be a competitor to Medical Manager. I would be interested in even helping with the project to whatever extent that I can.
