Free Medical Software and Solutions
A guide to a selected Free and Open-Source Medical Software and Solutions.
Open source vs Close source – What is the Difference? - NextGen Medical Software:
Open source free medical software (OSS-FOSS) evolved in the market a few years ago, and started to break the strong monopoly of the traditional closed-source software (proprietary competitors).
Though, it is still rare compared to the commercially one’s, and despite the obvious benefits, there is still a long way to go, as the market is not yet ready to switch to producing open-source products voluntarily, because it will lose money by doing so. Therefore, a seize fire should be there for the time being between the monster and the hero, and let each one of them does the best to achieve the goals, as the result by all means will be for the benefit of patients and medical service seekers at the end!
We will take further about medical close source software and the free open one’s in a detailed article, which you can view ☛ here.
But now, let us take you to a selected list "OF ONLY" free and open-source health and medical software, with no conditions, licensing and limitations, which many impose - (though, they claim that, they are open-source solutions!) - covering the essential and important sections of the medical field.
In the below list, we categorized them according to their use, and then particularized few for more details with similar software or alternatives.
The list itself is not numerous, as our purpose is not the quantity, but rather the quality and benefit.
