Res Medicinae

Res Medicinae is to become a comprising software solution for use in Medicine which combines intuitive ease of use with great flexibility, reached through the usage of CYBOP technology. It wants to adhere to common standards for medical software, wherever useful, and will thus be open to other systems. Using the CYBOL language, users are enabled to, themselves, modify applications.

Res Medicinae is the attempt to overcome high pricing in the realm of Medical Information Systems and to provide users with a free, stable, secure, platform-independent, extensive system.

Res Medicinae is and will be free in every meaning. Its contributors enjoy working together and are encouraged by the idea of sharing their knowledge with people living on the poorer side of the world.

A review done in 2005 is seen here: http://people.debian.org/~tille/talks/200510_linuxmed/debian-med.html#toc1 with the following excerpts:

Res Medicinae is to become a comprising software solution for use in Medicine which combines intuitive ease of use with the advantages of the CYBOP Framework. It uses latest technology adhering to common standards for medical software and will such be open to many other medical systems. It is another promising project to build a complex practice management system. It has a modular object oriented design and just shows some interesting features.

Res Medicinae is the attempt to overcome high pricing in the realm of Medical Information Systems and to provide users with a free, stable, secure, platform-independent, extensive system.

Res Medicinae is and will be free in every meaning. Its contributors enjoy working together communicating over mailing lists and are encouraged by the idea of sharing their knowledge with those people living on "the poorer side of" the world.

Regarding its distribution by Debian, it might cause some trouble that it is written in Java because often Java applications relay on features of non-free implementations of the Java virtual machine; in particular, Res Medicinae seems to use the non-free Swing toolkit.

While this project is promising, it is also far from ready.
