RemoteClinic is an Open source Software solutions for clinic management, It focuses on improvement of the clinical flow for patient and provide more process control for other processes in the clinics. It may seem old fashioned as it's PHP/ MySQL based solution as many other open source EMR/ and clinical related solution in the same domain, but it comes with different approach to manage the workflow and more modem and mobile ready user interface.
RemoteClinic comes with more real-time and reactive features as notifications which includes smart alerting and warning as " Inventory Warnings ", and easy to read graphs and charts.
Developers note :
Remote Clinic is built on top of PHP and uses MySQL as database backend, It's fairly easy to install following the instructions, It's also lightweight ( about 700kb ) with simple data structure comparing to the complexity of other solutions in the same domain as well as framework generated solutions. To install it on the local machine you will need a local PHP/ MySQL development server, regarding to your operating system : WAMP for windows, MAMP or XAMPP for MacOSX and XAMPP for Linux ( will provide links for all in the references section at the end of the post). The design is simple and responsive works great from iPhone 7 plus browser.
Installation Test drive
I have installed Remote Clinic on Mac OSX using MAMP, which takes less than 2 mins, logged in smoothly with the provided username/ password. The system is working fast, there are some demo data for users, clinics, and medications. Adding new users was quite smooth so as adding new clinic, medication. The graphs are smoothly rendered. The user interface is simple, usable and easy to find the items so as the dashboard.
What is needed to push RemoteClinic to the next stage?
Project status : Unknown
Though the system is currently not begin updated since 2 years, and there is no visible roadmap, but lets hope it'll regain it's activity soon and finish the missing elements to be usable by the end users and the open source community.
