piClinic Console - Front

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.

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.

Current status

The project is currently in user-testing and stakeholder review. The piClinic Console will be installed in several clinics for field testing during the summer of 2019.
