PostPosted: Sat 09 Jul 2011, 01:20    Post_subject:  Puppy linux EMR??
Sub_title: or light weight practice management??
 

I have tried many Electronic Medical Records and practice management systems. All of them have one thing in common - obesity! Yes, they are all obese software. All of them have a big client-server design and virtually impossible to run in a tiny netbook.

There is a need for a tiny practice management suite for specialists/generalist doctors and even medical students to keep track of patient lists and chart notes. It doesn't need to be enterprise scale. Just a nice database that can handle notes, results and images should do just fine. Importantly, it should be fast, real fast!

I haven't come across any software filling that niche, so far (other than a few exorbitantly priced commercial software).

But, I was exploring PPLOG and its design. Looks like it has a lot of potential! If anyone is willing to design webpages that are delivered through the tiny and superfast hiawatha server - there exists the puppy EMR (or "pupmed" as we could name it!).

Any thoughts on this??

There's a list here,

http://www.goomedic.com/20-linux-open-source-emr-ehr-and-his-hospital-information-system-applications.html

or try http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=86481

http://sourceforge.net/projects/tkfp/files/

Puppy or grafpup versions should work OK

If you send a pm to ttuuxxx he could probably make you a 214x version with his current Classic Pup Wink

Of course you'd need to run any Puppy linux if you want fast Wink

Sub_title: but...
 

Thanks aitch.

I have tried most of them over the years. As I mentioned, they are all Web browser + PHP + Apache + Mysql combination - which is not that good for running on the fly!

PPLOG (the personal blogging application included with puppy 525) uses web browser + perl + hiawatha + flatfiles. This architecture is similar to big emr/ehr/pms. If this can be customized for emr, it would make a simple, lightweight and importantly, fast emr. If some developers can look at the openemr structure and make a lightweight emr with pplog architecture, I think it has potential applications.

Did you have a look at this Live CD version? - only 337mb

http://sourceforge.net/projects/tkfp/files/Tkfp%20Grafpup%20Linux/

I've just notified the developer of grafpup, who's just posted a return visit, 'hello' thread

Sorry can't help with the pplog database, but I understand about the flat-file approach

tlchost may be able to help, if you pm him, as he's just posted a similar flat file db for PLUG

I tried the TKFP. But, currently there is a need for simple and wireless EMR, especially in places like emergency departments. I was envsioning mobile netbooks running lightweight emr based on a simple architecture.
