Hospital

Is there any possibility to distribute a live cd like the one with openerp but with Hospital?

Thank you.

Do you mean this:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/openhospital/
You should create a package request in bugzilla first,
because this is not packaged for mageia yet. After that
it is possible to customize one of the live-cds or maybe
someone else is also interested in an MageiaMED-Live.

is with good intention, sorry if annoying. OpenSUSE has a version Medical perhaps there can get some idea that is useful for Mageia ...You can also search information in Distrowatch:

One of the good things of Live CDs is that you can use Linux when and where you want included on borrowed computers or work :P

Debian has also a medical version: http://www.debian.org/devel/debian-med/
I know this only because i worked on GNUmed packages for Mandriva back in the days.
Maybe you should have a look at it: http://wiki.gnumed.de/bin/view/Gnumed

You should definitely take a look at this thread: viewtopic.php?f=11&t=498 ;)

Resurrecting an old Thread, but this might be of interest: If it's a "real" hospital of considerable size, then you're going to want a REAL EMR. Not a mere Toy, written in a few dozen (or a few hundred) hours by "hobbyists".

With just one or two enhancements, It is theoretically possible to install VISTA, the Veterans Administration EMR system, on a Mageia machine. VISTA scales well - from individual Practioner Offices, all the way up to the Indian Health Service, NASA, and the VA itself (multi-location Health Systems, with a need to remain functioning if/when Internet "breaks down".) All of the Development, and the work for "effective use" certification, and lots of other RASUI enhancements, are done and paid for by the US Government - you get it for free.

There is only one thing worse than implementing an Open-Source, but insufficient "toy" EMR, putting genuine Pt. records into it, and then needing to extract/convert all of that data into a better system at a later time. That one thing is: implementing a Proprietary Secret-Sauce EMR, and having it's owner go belly-up in the coming shake-out.

There are perhaps 1000-5000 companies trying to get established in the EMR business, and I think that far less than 5% will survive past 2020. VISTA is nearly certain to be one of the survivors. And it's been established, by legal decisions, that it will remain "Free" via the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). Because USA Citizens paid for it, and the Source Code contains no secret or confidential information (that's in the Records, not the Program), we can obtain the Code- and it's updates- by request. That fact, along with the huge scalability and history of successful use (over dozens of years) make up for a lot of it's issues: (humongous number of parts; very hard to learn as an Adminstrator; no Pt. Gateway; and not the easiest system for Clinicians, either).
