Welcome to GNU Health HMIS 4.0!

Dear community:

I am very proud to announce the release of series 4.0 from the GNU Health Hospital Management Information System (HMIS) component!

Thanks to our community, GNU Health is now a leading Hospital Management Information System, with implementations in many countries around the world. The 4.0 series improves the navigation, introduces many more language teams, new packages and much better integration of evaluation, laboratory and Dx Imaging services.

What is new in GNU Health 4.0 series

  • Improved ergonomics on the GTK client
  • New HELP command that allows offline and contextualized documentation
  • WebDAV and CalDAV packages are fully integrated in GH (no links)
  • Weblate now holds 34 language teams!
  • Removed obsoleted binary ODT (except for some charts)
  • Improved integration with OpenStreetMap (OSM)
  • Improved surgery and patient evaluation flows
  • New health service Dx imaging package
  • Update person gender list
  • Add medical evaluations to health services
  • Include (optional) expiration date on the person ID
  • Add context field for Dx Imaging and Lab tests

Upgrading from GNU Health 3.8

  • Make a FULL BACKUP your kernel, database and attach directories !!!
  • Follow the instructions on the Wikibooks.
  • Don't forget to run the "before" and "after" sql scripts

Development focus

In addition of the GH HMIS server, we will focus the development in the following  areas of the GNU Health ecosystem:

  • MyGNUHealth: The GNU Health app for desktop and mobile devices
  • The Documentation Portal and HELP command documentation packages
  • Thalamus and the Federation Portal

The GNU Health Federation integrates information from many health institutions and people from a region or country. The GH Federation portal will allow to manage resources, as well as the main point for *analytics* and *reporting* of massive demographics and epidemiological data generated nationwide. People, health centers and research institutions (eg genomics) can benefit from the GNU Health Federation and the GNU Health ecosystem in general.

As always, no matter how hard we try to avoid them, there will be bugs, so please test the new system, upgrade process, languages, and give us your feedback via them via

The community server has been already migrated to 4.0.0, so you just need to download the GNU Health HMIS client and enjoy it.

Happy and Healthy Hacking !
