The BioLinux Group was founded in Argentina in the year 2001, and now encompasses all of Latin America. The Group exists for the diffusion, discussion, development, strategies, and guidelines for the use of GNU/Linux in health care systems. The main web site can be found at: www.biolinux.org.ar As well as a discussion list with more than 100 members from many countries in Latin America.
In 2002 we developed Linuxmed 2002 an excellent meeting about the uses of open source in health systems. You can see more information in http://www.linuxmed.org.ar.
Now we are working on make Ututo, the main GNU/Linux distribution in Argentina, to be portable with health applications. We would like to invite everyone to participate in our group, for a better discussion of the health uses of GNU/Linux in public and private institutions.
