GNU Health HMIS: Hospital and Health Information System
GNU Health HMIS: Libre Hospital Management and Health Information System
The GNU Health HMIS provides the following functionality:
- Hospital Management Information System (HMIS)
- Electronic Medical Record (EMR)
- Health Information System (HIS)
- Laboratory Information System (LIS)
The Hospital and Health Information System component (HMIS) from GNU Health (GH) provides over 40 standard-based packages (primary care, obstetrics & gynecology, pediatrics, surgery, lims, genetics, diagnostic imaging, dentistry, reporting…) to fit your institution needs. The GH HMIS combines the socioeconomic determinants of health with state-of-the-art technology in bioinformatics and clinical genetics.
The HMIS manages the internal processes of a health institution, such as financial management, billing, stock management, pharmacies or labs (LIMS).
The GH HMIS is part of the GNU Health project, the Libre digital health ecosystem.
The GNU Health project combines the daily medical practice with state-of-the-art technology in bioinformatics and genetics. It provides a holistic approach to the person, from the biological and molecular basis of disease to the social and environmental determinants of health.
This component is ready to integrate in the GNU Health Federation, which allows to interconnect heterogeneous nodes and build large federated health networks across a region, province or country.
