- openSUSE, a very stable and versatile graphical user interface based linux desktop distro. Both LiveCD and full install DVD versions includes a complete suite of open source application for desktop productivity (including openOffice), web browsing, multi-media operations, simple games and more.
- GNUmed is a fully featured open source EHR. It runs on Linux, Mac and Windows platforms. It has the intriguing ability of being run off a portable flash disk by using the PortableApps platform and a portable GNUmed version, leading to the first truly mobile EHR (database included). A flash disk of at least 1 GB is recommended and they are easily available these days. Currently (Client version 0.4.5 and server version 10.5), installation of the portable version is still not user-friendly enough for people not familiar with PostgreSQL and more work still needs to be done.
- PatientOS aims to be the "highest quality free enterprise wide healthcare information system". It is open source and professional support is available for a fee. Seems to support both openEHR and HL7 standards. The original home page at patientos dot org is now a Korean dating site! We have updated our links to the Sourceforge page where the installation files are still available.
- Open source statistical software. This site has one of the most comprehensive lists of current packages available. This includes the open source version of SPSS, PSPP and the HTML based OpenEpi software, which is very useful for epidemiological statistics. OpenEpi can be downloaded and run locally. It is platform independent.
- openEHR. An open domain-driven platform for developing flexible e-health systems. openEHR is formally accepted as a European and ISO standard (CEN/ISO EN13606) .
