The paper examines the methodology for developing a Hospital Management Information System (HMIS) on Free Open Source Software (FOSS) and identifies the areas of improvement in the design and methodology. In addition to the methodology the paper presents the broad contours of the software solution and the extent to which existing FOSS components have been used. The paper also provides the rationale and benefits of adopting an in-house development model using FOSS. While the target… Expand

Open source challenges for hospital information system (HIS) in developing countries: a pilot project in Mali
TLDR
Initial results showed the potential of Open Source in the field of health IT for developing countries like Mali and it is important to take into account the recommendations and the challenges discussed here to avoid several potential pitfalls specific to the context of Africa. Expand
Designing and Implementing Hospital Management Information Systems in Developing Countries: Case Studies from Tanzania – Zanzibar
TLDR
Key lessons learned from this case study are the need to provide sufficient time to implement HIS in this context due to the difficulty of health workers and mangers to understand the logics of a computerised information system, which is needed to take full advantage of the technology. Expand
Open source software development process modeling
TLDR
This chapter draws attention to software process modeling for open source software development by proposing a three-layered open source Software Process Engineering Meta-model, which allows to describe fine-grained process model fragments characteristics of different open source projects. Expand
Integrating open-source technologies to build low-cost information systems for improved access to public health data
TLDR
This paper integrates open-source technologies and public health data to create a web information system which is accessible to a wide audience through the Internet and shows the extensibility and scalability of EpiVue in displaying gender-based longevity statistics over a twenty-year interval.
