OpenClinic GA: 500+ worldwide hospital Implementation with ~500 weekly downloads
OpenClinic GA is an open-source hospital information management system (HIMS) which covers all aspects of running small and medium-sized hospitals.
The project started back 2010 as a hospital information system by a group of developers, doctors and experienced hospital managers.
It's built as a cross-platform, self-hosted and on-premise system for low-resources hospitals.
For weeks OpenClinic GA is getting hundreds of download hits at Sourceforge.net. This week it gets ~700 downloads so far. Unfortunately, there is no easy way to measure the community and how many users does it have.
The web user interface for OpenClinic GA is working seamlessly on all popular web browsers like Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Opera. However, the user-interface certainly require more work to fit for smaller screens and resolutions.
The table layout may look an old-school design especially in 2020/ 2021 but it does the job.
We do like OpenClinic GA because it's ready for telemedicine with full WebRTC support and packed with many medical standard to ensure better clinical outcome.
