Opal is an open source framework for building a healthcare applications, Its build on top of Django framework, which itself is very powerful and solid framework for developers to make sure their product is production solid. Opal is a project from Open Health Care UK, which is a limited UK based company dedicated to build solutions for healthcare sector.
As a developer I worked with different frameworks and platforms, but almost all were built to not be domain specific and there were no initiative to build domain specific platform on almost all of them. Mainly because domain specific products were not that popular, also the products were varying from one setup/ client to another. Opal has solved that issue by building the base shared modules/ data structure and put them ready to use by developers which includes : Patient Model, Clinical flows, Search module, REST API and more.
