Care2x for man's best friends

They bark and say "meow" for open source.

Clinique Vétérinaire Des Alizés, a veterinary clinic in France is using Care2x, an open source hospital information system, to manage the data of its "patients". These patients do not say "hello" but bark, say "meow", or otherwise emit animal sounds. Yes, open source software is also being used for animal patients. Dr. Jean-Philippe LIOT, the head of the clinic has implemented Care2x in the clinic's intranet and has also developed several customized functions and plugin modules. These additions have been incorporated in the current software releases since then. Currently, Dr. LIOT is developing a live video module for round-the-clock monitoring of his patients in their caged "wards".

Italian Olympic Committee uses Care2x

CONI, as the committee is popularly known in Italy, has approved its sports medicine department locally called L'Instituto Nazionale di Medicina dello Sport (INMS) to use a custom version of Care2x.

According to Umberto Rampa, the department's IT director responsible for the project, it took the INMS around 17 months to make the important customizations up to using the modules in real productive environment. The institute has more "outpatient" character. Their "patient", mostly athletes, isn't sick but rather a kind of superman.

The INMS started the customization of Care2x in Rome on March 2003 by hiring two professional software engineers. They modified and/or enhanced many modules to fit their needs in billing, laboratory, demographics, medical reports, as well as migrating data from a legacy system. The resulting product was first tried for productive operation on April 2004. On the following month, they activated the "general medicine" and "appointment" modules. On June 2004, the cardiology module was activated.

Mr. Rampa said that they are now planning to integrate modules for intruments management and digital imagery.
