  • Appointment management
  • Volunteers management

DataPall EMR: Appointment

DataPall has been approved for use by Malawi Ministry of Health, But there is no enough information how many clinics are using it right now.

RICE 360 has internship and fellowship programs, DataPall EMR was the result of a student's internship assignment, However, the fellowship program is dedicated for developing low-cost, high-performance health technologies in low-resources settings as developing countries, Which means DataPall EMR is one of many projects, hopefully, they will share it with the world. But, wouldn't it be more efficient to use open source/ Libre products, or adapt, extend and scale open source projects like GNU Health or OpenHospital?
