Free Software Tools Used in the E-Health Project
One of the unstated goals of the e-health project is to make as much use of Free Software wherever possible. On this journey, we have found the selection of tools and utilities to not only be rich but also of very high quality.
One major benefit to our use of Free Software within the project is that we can share. We can share our experiences with others in the [healthcare] industry so they too may benefit from the use of these tools.
All the software listed below is free as in speech. Please find ways to contribute to the projects that you find useful. You will find details for contribution on the detail pages listed below.
Details of the different Free software projects that contribute to the ePAS can be found on ePAS/SoftwareBreakdown. But, for a quick list of the bigger pieces involved in running the ePAS:
Tryton - A 3-tier application platform, the platform upon which GNU Health is based
PostgreSQL - The world's most advanced open-source database and Tryton's data storage tier
Debian - The Universal Operating System
