I am associated with a charity clinic in Delhi through a relative who is a
consulting doctor there. On his request I have developed a very simple
patient history and record management system on a full python stack and
released under the GNU Affero GPL. PRS is written as a web application, and
comes bundled with the Tornado webserver. As such it is intended to run on
a desktop (Linux, Windows or Mac) without internet connectivity but can
also be deployed on a server and accessed through the network (see below).

The clinic staff are currently evaluating the software, and I expect this
to go "into production" in the next month or two. So it is somewhat stable
- in beta status, and there will be many opportunities for small features
and enhancements. It could also be extended to support work flows in other
clinics as well. As such it is a good opportunity for college students or
others interested in playing with a fully functional Python based web
application, while contributing to open source.

I invite you to browse the source code
at:https://github.com/skarra/PRSand/or give the application a spin
http://ec2-107-21-172-206.compute-1.amazonaws.com:8765/ (This is hosted on
a free AWS instance and will be very very slow. Only meant for a very quick
peek; it is definitely recommended that you clone the git repo and give it
a try beyond a few preliminary clicks)

I am happy to mentor any students interested in playing with PRS and
improving it in the process. If you know of any other organization who can
use a software like this, please go ahead and fork it.

NOTE: It only runs on Chrome for now.
