Integrated software environment for all medical purposes based on Debian GNU/Linux

Talk at Linuxtag 2007

30. May 2007


The Debian-Med project started in 2002 with the objective to bring free medical software into the focus of users. The first step was the investigation of available Free Software in this area and to accomplish the conditions for a simple and solid installation of this software in Debian GNU/Linux.

It has shown that fields like molecular biology and medical imaging were covered quite good with Free Software solutions while there is not really much to manage a medical practice. The Debian-Med project tries to build a bridge between developers and users to support Free Software solutions for all areas in medicine.

Debian-Med is intended to be useful for service providers who want to distribute their free or proprietary solutions in medical care.

The talk is targeting to an audience with interest in Free Software for medical care and does not require any special knowledge. The language of the talk and the slides is German.
