Dear Python community,

we are happy to announce the release of GNUmed 0.2 "Librarian".

GNUmed is an application to be used by doctors to document
clinical care in the non-hospital setting. Both backend and
frontend come under the GPL such that the doctor/user can
always guarantee access to the complete data of his patients
(contrary to many proprietary systems). The frontend is
written in Python/wxPython and uses PostgreSQL as its

This version adds several important features:

- server can be installed on MS/Windows, too
- client runs on MS/Windows, too
- remote control client from legacy applications
- patient demographics import interface
- managing staff members from within the user interface
- searching the medical record

- a complete document management system
  - importing documents from files
  - scanning in documents
  - handling of review status
  - handling of clinical relevance
  - taking patient pictures with a webcam
  - completely integrated with the clinical
    structure of the medical record

Of course, the advanced structured electronic medical record
has improved upon its existing robustness and offers:

- grouping of health data by
  - underlying health issue
  - episodes of activity of health issue
  - doctor-patient encounter
- structuring of progress notes into
  - Subjective
  - Objective
  - Assessment
  - Plan
