Project description: 

FFEHR is the temporary project name of a software application commissioned by the ASEAN +3 node of the UNDP's International Open Source Network (UNDP-IOSN) for eventual use as an electronic health record for the healthcare industry. The initial goal of the project is to be able to design a common user interface that is both effective and efficient, and widely acceptable to medical practitioners in the Philippines and in the future, worldwide.

The project is being developed using the Mozilla Programming Framework (MPF), the same technology behind popular applications such as Firefox, Thunderbird, Songbird, Miro and others. It was chosen for its robust network capabilities and its cross platform implementations. Through MPF, the EHR application can run as an extension to Firefox or other Mozilla-based browsers. It can also operate as an independent local application through Xulrunner.
