As Richard pointed out there are local contacts in Australia. It has always 
been communicated from our community members in Australia that GNUmed in 
Australia would have to be an all or nothing solution. 

Following those requirements GNUmed seems not to be suited for Australia. If 
however you would like to take a look yourself and judge from what is there 
and still needs to be done to suit your needs you are welcome to have a look 

Feel free to come back with any question you might have. Richard has done work 
on laying down requirements for Austrila back then. We would very much 
appreciate it if you found the time to add information to our Wiki on what is 
a minimal feature set for Australia.

Here in German we use GNUmed alongside established programs without much
