GNUmed is a comprehensive scalable open source medical practice management software. Its purpose is to enable doctors to keep a medically sound record on their patients' health.

It is intended to become a sophisticated decision support system that will elevate the quality of medical care that can be delivered.

GNUmed is suitable for any health care provider interested in keeping a sound and comprehensive medical record. It is currently in use with GPs and physical therapists and it may be a perfect solution for doctors or nurse clinicians serving rural or disadvantaged areas with limited infrastructure.

GNUMed stores all data encrypted so that even hardware theft does not enable disallowed data access. The software operates on networks of a few to many users, and will support secure, remote access. It also functions on a single computer making it possible to initially examine the software.

 GNUmed 1.4.14
