ClearHealth is an open source practice management and electronic medical records system designed by clinics and hospitals. It is a fully comprehensive system.

The software offers Electronic Medical Records (EMR), medical billing, medical accounts receivable, scheduling, and access control. It makes use of other open source software. For example, ClearHealth uses PHPGacl for access control, and FreeB for the medical billing element. The latter enables support for paper HCFAs and X12 formats.

More importantly, it offers tight integration between the separate elements.

ClearHealth has an Object Oriented base EMR that can be extended without programing. The software uses EMR extensions which are akin to HTML forms. By using extensions, the EMR can met the requirements of the medical practice.

The ClearHealth system is fully compliant with HIPAA security provisions, and is used by over 600 medical facilities worldwide.
