The Academic Hospital Paramaribo chooses Medical

The Academic Hospital Paramaribo (AZP) is the largest and most modern hospital in Suriname.





The AZP was founded march 9, 1966 as a central hospital and was changed into the Academic Hospital Paramaribo in 1969 gaining its university status. The current staff consists of about 1700 co-workers. The AZP Hospital has a 470 bed capacity.




On a yearly basis 20.000 patients are hospitalized, while about 176.0000 out-patients visit the hospital.

We greatly appreciate AZP commitment to Medical and support to our organization, GNU Solidario. We are working with AZP to initially provide specific functionality in pediatric care and cardiology. This is a clear example on how large hospitals can collaborate to Free software, where the rest of the world will also benefit.

This entry is a tribute to the Debian community, which has been always at the heart of Free Software, and today is the source for many linux distributions (including Ubuntu).
Here are some pictures when we installed some years ago Debian GNU/Linux in two rural schools in Santiago del Estero.






Thanks to Debian for all these years of contribution to the community, as a truly Free Operating System.

    Release of Medical 0.1.3 and OpenERP v6 integration

    I'm happy to announce the release of Medical 0.1.3, with includes bug fixes and improvements in Patient Hospitalization Management, Laboratory Administration and PoS / Billing, among others.



    It all looks like that Medical v1 and OpenERP v6 will come out very closely in dates.


    For the last weeks, I've been working on adapting Medical to the upcoming version of OpenERP v6. I have work on the code, the views and the documentation, so I can say now that most of the code is v6 compatible ( including wizards).

    Medical 0.1.3 has been released today. From this point on, all the active development (trunk) will be done in OpenERP / OpenObject v6.


    The current trunk has been moved to branch openerp5. This will be based in medical 0.1.3 and it's a maintenance version, so bugfixes will be applied to it.

    I invite all of you who are actively developing Medical to download the latest OpenERP repository and install Medical on it.  Please document the new functionality on the Wiki (http://medical.wiki.sourceforge.net). I already documented the installation process for Medical under OpenERP v6.

    This approach is the best way to keep Medical uptodate with the latest OpenERP developments, improvements and functionality. Of course, we will keep the 5x version for people that don't want to migrate at this point.

    The new online demo of Medical version , compatible with openerp v6 will be available soon at the GNU Solidario portal. Same user, ports, etc..

    Medical 0.1.2 - Hospitalization (inpatient) management

    In this version of Medical  we have added important hospital functionality like the inpatient admission administration.

    The module "medical_inpatient" concentrates the main functionality to :

    - Make bed reservations
    - Check  availability
    - Graphically manage the hospital or health cernet beds in wards and or rooms.

    Medical allows to manage bed assignments for different types of admissions (routine, periodic, maternity, emergencies, ..), for the specific hospital department.

    calendar for hospital bed and patient management

    In this view, it's easy to look for patient's locations and status in the hospital. The colors visually differentiate the type of admissions.



    We have also improve other sections, like vaccinations. Thanks to Andrew Gledhill (NHS) who proposed the addition of the vaccine lot and expiration date. Actually, the vaccine is integrated to the product, so all the production lot, traceability, and procurement is automated. Special controls for vaccine expiration dates have been put in place now.

    Finally, this version includes the translation to Vietnamese (thanks to Phong Nguyen) of all the modules !

    You can find a detailed description of changes in the Changelog file (http://medical.sf.net/Changelog)

    You can download this latest version from Sourceforge of from the European Community Open Source Observatory (OSOR)

    Please report any suggestions or issues you find to our mailining lists or bug tracking system.

    LinuxCon 2010 Brazil and Medical

    Just got back from LinuxCon 2010 Brazil, (thank you Linux Foundation for inviting me ! ) where I was the speaker for Medical : Benefits of Implementing a Free Hospital and Health Information System.

    Linus Torvalds and Luis Falcón at LinuxCon 2010

    The event was great, I got the chance to see again my Brazilian friends, like Corinto Meffe, who is doing a great job on the public software portal. Corinto was the one who included Medical in the community of the Software Publico Brasileiro.
    Corinto Meffe (Brazilian government ), Marcelo Moreno (Ginga), Tatiana Al-Chueyr (In-vesalius), Luis Falcón (Medical) and  Ricardo Amorim (codecommunity) at LinuxCon 2010 Brasil

    Release of Medical 0.0.50

    In this version we keep on improving navigation, demo data and reporting.

    Since 0.0.50 the patient's diseases (including allergies) will be always visible. A new color schema will differentiate and highlight severe and infectious diseases. The diseases are also ordered by different parameters ( active,  disease status, severity, diagnosis date, pregnancy warnings, ... ).



    This design optimizes navigation and the focus on the different aspects of the patient, without missing critical information about the patient.

    New MEDICAL Demo DB and data

    I just created a new DB with some demo data to test and play with.

    This version is based on SVN rev. 87, with the modular design. Most modules have been loaded.

    I believe that the best way to test the system is to have a couple of demo Medical Records, with as much information as possible, as well as the institution information.


    The basic data includes :


    - Female patient
    - Diabetes type 1.
    - Using an insulin pump
    - Allergic to penicillin
    - Mother of 2 infants ( G2P2A0). One premature.

    - There is one evaluation (Presumptive diagnosis : Acute cystitis)
    - One prescription ( Ciprofloxacin )
    - One lab test ( urine analysis )
    - Health Institution
    - Doctor

    Other info : Has traveled to malaria endemic area 4 months ago and did not take any anti-malarial prophylaxis.

    In this demo instance, please play with the following :

    - Hospitalizations
    - Family members
    - Lifestyle
    - Perinatal and puerperium information
    - Socioeconomics ( patient occupation, living conditions, ... )
    - Surgeries
    - Genetic risks and family history
    - Other lab tests (eg, CBC)
    - Sexuality
    - Vaccinations


    We should also have demo data for the Hospital Administration (personnel, financials, products, stock, suppliers, pharmacy, ... )

    All that info will be used and included in the next version (0.0.49), so we have a case to work on from the start. It's also a good way to check and look for bugs.

    Please check the online demo and join the mailing lists were you'll find the access data, and can make questions about the system. If you are not a developer, then you should subscribe to the medical-users mailing list only.


    Enjoy and thanks for testing !

    Getting ready for Medical 0.0.48

    Medical 0.0.48 will represent a major milestone in the development of the HIS. This new distribution greatly improves the development, localization and scalability of the system. Specific teams can work independently in their disciplines, without affecting the rest. Smaller centers won’t necessarily have to install all the modules, just the ones they need.

    We plan to release the 0.0.48 on this Sunday 25th, with most of the translations in place. Developers can get it from the SVN repository.

    I have updated the SVN repository, with the new medical schema. The “monolithic” main module has been divided now into the following. There are many that we are working on ( like epidemiology and reporting ) that will be included also shortly.

    medical : Core module. It contains the main objects, such as patient, disease, physicians, evaluations, ethnic groups, hospitals and their infrastructure, admissions, families, operational areas and sectors,  medicaments and medications, administration routes and appointment administration.

    medical_genetics : It contains all the objects and functionality relevant to family history and genetic disorders. Over 4200 genes associated to diseases.

    medical_gyneco : Gynecological and obstetric info. Pregnancy, perinatal, birth, postpartum and puerperium information, monitors and history

    medical_socioeconomics : Living conditions, Educational level, Infrastructure (electricity, sewers, drinking water …), Family affection ( APGAR ), Drug addiction, Hostile environment, Teenage Pregnancy, Working children, ….

    medical_surgery : Module specific for surgery medical discipline. It also holds the patient surgeries history. It can work with ICD10-PCS module for the Procedures Codes.

    medical_icd10pcs : Procedure Coding System for Medical ICD-10-PCS. It’s a standard that represents the successor of ICD-9-CM for medical procedures (surgical and others ).

    medical_icd10 : World Health Organization – International Classification of Diseases for MEDICAL – 10th revision. You can use this standard for the pathology coding. Medical uses a coding system such there is no mistake in the typing or interpretation of the diagnosis.

    medical_lifestyle : Gathers information about the habits and sexuality of the patient. For example, eating habits, drinking, drug addictions,  sexuality and sexual education, physical activity, …

    medical_lab : Will hold the functionality for clinical tests and the interfaces with industry clinical devices

    medical_ : These modules will hold the localization effort for different countries ( such as medical_gr for Greece, medical_br for Brazil or medical_es for Spain ). will be the two letter country ISO code. We should not confuse this with the translation. Each module will have a i18n directory that will hold all the translations for different languages.
