My cousin studies Biology here at the University, and obviously… uses Linux 🙂. The fact is that in recent weeks I have had to look for software related to medicine that exists in our repos, hence I am finding a lot of software that I had never seen before, simply because I was not looking for anything similar.
This time I want to talk about an application that is really simple, but it draws my attention because of how useful it can be to those who are dedicated to consultations, patients, medicines, or those who simply want to be entertained with games of doctors, dentist games, veterinarians or similar, the application in question is: Clinica
As you can see, you have the options right there in the center, easy to find:
- Add a new patient
- Patient list
- List of doctors
- Search for medicines
- Open calendar
For example, if we press the button to add a new patient, we can enter the following information:
On the other hand, if we wish add a medicine we find the option in Tools - »Add Medicine. Of course, as clarified in the window that opens, the medicines that we add are only available in our local application, they will not be shared on the network.
…. Share medicines on the network? … what are you talking about? Well, according to the application it automatically loads a list of medications from the internet, if we are going to Tools - »Settings -» Plugins we can appreciate it better:
Also and since we are in the application options, in the tab General we have the following options:
In the Pharmaceutical products We find a list of databases (local and others from the network), we select the ones we want to use as drug lists.
En Network well, it shows us options to share our application over the network and then connect to it from another computer, that is, a client-server application:
As you can see, you have many more options than you first appear, right? 😉… and even so, the basic options, the important ones, are just a click away, at a glance.
Installing it on ArchLinux is simple:
sudo pacman -S clinica
In Debian, Ubuntu or derivatives it would be:
sudo apt-get install clinica clinica-plugins
Personally, I am not a doctor, much less I think I am, however I already helped someone when I showed this application on my laptop, I hope to help some more by sharing it here on the site, I imagine someone on the internet is looking for something like this Linux 😀
Well up to here the post, we read!
