Here at the University Hospital HEODRA in León/Nicaragua is a proyect
ongoing which englobes various aspects of GNUE.
Actually we are starting to implement an Inventory Module,
especifically for farmaceutic products.
However, with Alejandro Imass's (Saludos amigo!) proposal in mind, the
design will be as general as possible.
I would be glad to be able to contribute with this to the
Is anybody working on this part of GNUE? Please contact me to see what
exists yet, and what we can contribute.
On the other hand I have to state that we are lacking all kind of
ressources, so if anybody wants to contribute both to the nicaraguan
health care and to GNUE we are glad to get any help.
Our vision is to implement a fully featured hospital managment system,
combined with a medical information system.
Our active projects are;
- a small erp-system for the administration of the
"health-insurance"-split-off of the hospital (since they pay two
programmers and have a computer), starting with the inventory of
a farmacy, control of medical service production (requires
registry of patients), and an ordering module for the
- a biomedical-engineering system, which is a combination of
equipment tracing, administration of maintainence personal and
analysis of production data and, most important, tracing of
repair and maintainance tasks (since I work for the biomedical
engineering department as a volunteer).
- a small hospitalary information system which includes sample
tracing and report of laboratory analysis results with quality
control of the laboratory, farmaceutics dispatch, usage and
survey of farmacological treatmentes, epidemiologic research and
analysis, patient registration (maybe up to epicrisis
archive). This part depends partially on the prolongation of my
voluntee-contract for the next two years however I am yet
preparing the implementation.
What we need:
- Computers and Network accessories
- A salary for a One-(wo)man Computer Department
- Programmers, and/or training for university teachers and
students of the UNAN-University, to upgrade them to GNU/Unix
- A new educational system for Nicaragua (whoops, I'm of course
right, but maybe going to far in this context :)
