Just thought I'd bring this to the attention of those interested in EMR/EHR solutions.PatientOS is an open source healthcare information system that is freely available for use in solo practices, small clinics, medical centers, hospitals and large healthcare multi-site facilities. PatientOS healthcare software is a desktop client/server system with all the key features required for practice management, patient registration, scheduling, medical billing, medical records, medications, prescriptions, laboratory, orders, reports, etc.PatientOS has been designed in such a way that forms for all medical specialties can be easily created without any programming requirements. This means that electronic medical records for each specialty within a center can be setup quickly, making it an ideal medical record software system. Unlimited clinical and administrative forms can be created with custom fields and data elements for individual medical practices and medical specialties: Primary Care/Family Practice, Anesthesiology, Cardiology, Chiropractic, Dentistry, Emergency Care, General Surgery, Mental & Behavioral Health, Neurology, OB / Gyn, Oncology, Ophthalmology, Orthopedics, Pediatrics, Physical Therapy, Podiatry, Radiology, etc.PatientOS is among of the most customizable open source systems available, with the flexibility to set up unlimited number of forms, orders, appointment types, etc. by simply using the system administration capabilities. Even the user interface can be quickly tailored to each specialty, hospital department or even for an individual user or group.PatientOS also implements drug-drug interaction, allergy, dose and drug effect checking. The prescriptions wizard enables quick prescriptions with dose and dispensing instructions. Any number of Lab tests and Lab orders can be set up. Billing allows manual charges to be recorded for patients. Reports can be developed according to the needs of the medical center or practice. Inventory and stock control functions can be readily configured in to the system.PatientOS can also be localized (i.e. can have Spanish, German, etc) for various languages. Several additional features can be added to PatientOS. These include: interfaces to lab equipment, management of radiology images (DICOM/PACS), point of sale bar code scanning and electronic ordering, electronic prescriptions (eRx), electronic claims processing, etc. We can integrate ImageJ which is an open source DICOM viewer developed by the US NIH ( ) for working with radiology images. It is a powerful tool...or any other suitable DICOM Viewer.A web-based patient portal enables patient self-registration and message interaction with their physician. The web portal can be extended to include additional features as necessary.PatientOS follows industry standards including HL7 interfaces and has been designed to be scalable for use in any large healthcare organization.Check this out yourself at or you are welcome to contact us for deployment of related assistance:
