A Django application for managing patient and healthcare provider records in a pluggable fashion.

Project description

rapidsms-healthcare is a reusable Django application for managing healthcare provider and patient records for building RapidSMS applications. The goal is to create a common API for storing and accessing these records and have configurable storage backends for the data itself. For instance on site might store data using a SQL database via the Django ORM while another might store the data in OpenMRS. Additional Django/RapidSMS applications can use this API to store and retrive data without knowning how it will be stored.
