The PUMA Repository (Pascal units for medical applications) is a collection of reusable source code for bioinformatics. It is compatible with Lazarus and Free Pascal, parts of the source code can also be used with Delphi and winsoft Pocket Studio.
Components of the PUMA repository include a unit converter for transforming instrumentation readouts consisting of a numerical value and a measurement unit, and an HL7 engine for reading, parsing, compiling and writing HL7 messages.
This is a stable release of Ruby openEHR implementation project. This release is based on openEHR specification release 1.0.2. We implemented almost of the specifications of the openEHR. The work is still in progress to implement related tools, such as archetype validator or serializer. Formerly, we named this package as open_ehr, but changed to openehr from release 1.1.0. 1.0.x versions are obsoleted. The intention is to have a sample EHR to utilize all over the world quickly with Ruby on Rails for many other porject.
This package includes:
ADL 1.4 parser
The epSOS project has released interoperability specifications (Common Components Specification) for national Contact Points (NCPs) to interact and support epSOS defined services such as patient summary and prescription. epSOS has also established a testing process for testing compliant implementations of these specifications, and ensure their interoperability.
Open Health Tools Model-Driven Health Tools (MDHT) Project is a wide-ranging open source effort to promote interoperability in healthcare infrastructure. It promotes shared artifacts between related healthcare standards and standards development organizations, and works to develop localized specifications. It also delivers a common modeling framework and tools that support seamless integration of design, publication, and runtime artifact creation.
The goal of OpenIGTLink is to provide a standardized mechanism to connect software/hardware through the network for image-guided therapy (IGT) applications. The features of OpenIGTLink include:
Aurion is an open source health information exchange platform that implements the Nationwide Health Information Network standard services and content specifications. Aurion is the first project chartered through the Alembic Foundation. This software enables the secure exchange of interoperable health information among diverse organizations using a wide variety of technologies.
The Zambia Electronic Perinatal Record System (ZEPRS) is an Electronic Medical Record (EMR) system used by public obstetric clinics and a hospital (the University Teaching Hospital) in Lusaka, Zambia to improve patient care. The University of Alabama Birmingham (UAB) Center for Research in Women's Health (CRWH), RTI, and the Center for Infectious Disease Research in Zambia (CIDRZ) developed ZEPRS with local medical expertise and project engagement from the Lusaka Urban Health District, Central Board of Health and funding support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
To lower the barrier to integration and expedite health care interoperability, Open Health Tools provides client side implementations of several key IHE profiles. These implementations were used successfully by over 35 systems to date at the 2007-2010 Connectathons in North America and Europe.
Snofyre is an open source, service oriented API for creating SNOMED CT enabled applications in Java. It provides a number of SNOMED CT related services out of the box. These services can be used:
- as a starter for understanding how to add SNOMED CT functionality to an application.
- to rapidly prototype a SNOMED CT enabled application.
Snofyre API aims to
- reduce the 'ramp up' time needed to understand
- and embed SNOMED CT functionality in an application.
