The piClinic is an open-source, patient-record automation solution designed for limited-resource healthcare clinics around the world. piClinic systems fill the gap between a paper-based patient-record system and a complete Electronic Health Record (EHR) system at a very low cost per system. The piClinic is built on the digital principles to provide an accessible, sustainable, and low-cost solution.
Many small clinics around the world would benefit from some form of patient-record automation to reduce duplicate and misplaced files and improve their ability to report on patients and clinic activities. However, for many of these clinics, an EHR system is too costly or too complex to install and maintain.
piClinic provides the essential patient-record automation functions of:
- Electronic patient master index
- Digital archiving of patient records
- Patient visit tracking and record-keeping
- Basic patient and clinic operation reports
Introducing a piClinic system to a clinic helps the clinic enjoy the benefits of better organization and automated reporting quickly, while preparing the clinic and its systems to move to a more comprehensive EHR in the future.
The project is currently in development and initial user-testing. The piClinic Console will be field tested during the summer of 2018.
