Hello everybody,

It has been some time since my first attempt to use Gnumed. As some of you may 
remember, I needed a database for small neurosurgical ward in a hospital 
lacking proper HIS. So I started to modify Gnumed, and finally I developed 3 
plugins, which we use daily. Let me share them with you.

1 EncounterEdit plugin
    1.1 This allows us to enter and modify existing narrative data on
          admittance, during hospitalization, and for discharge letter. All
          modifications are audited, of course.
    1.2 Printing of currently displayed encouter data is possible with one
          button click. (currently only for admittance and discharge)
2 Operaton plugin
    2.1 Operation report requires more specific fields than narrative, e.g.
          names of operator, assisstant and nurse
    2.2. One-click printing
3 EMRMultiView plugin
    3.1 This is simple modification of EMRBrowser with tree view combined with
          journal view and changes log view (displaying audit data) and the
          possibility to print the displayed data. The journal view is limited 
          currently selected node in EMR tree, to alllow selective printing of 

All this goes in slightly different direction than main development of Gnumed, 
which is intended for outpatient clinic.
We use on daily basis 3 functions:
1. patient status on admittance (based on progress note, using EncounterEdit 
2. operation reports
3. preparing of discharge letter based on demographic data and status at 
admittance (also based on progress note, using EncounterEdit plugin).
All goes with nice printouts, customized to our hospital needs.

The screenshots can be obtained by following links:

I enclose a README file, with more informations about the plugins. Below are 
links for downloading the sources.

NOTE 1: My plugins are based on client version 0.3.5 and database v.9 (I know 
it is pretty old).
NOTE 2: I advise to restore provided database backup and the whole application 
dirctory tree from .tar.gz, to avoid waste of time and nerves. 
If you find these plugins interesting, help with porting to current main 
version will be greatly appreciated.
NOTE 3: The printing of reports works with Polish templates, provided in the 
database backup. Please just evaluate the plugins. If you need to prepare your 
own templates, let me know. The problem of printing is still not solved as good 
as I would like. Describing how I prepared the templates is too complex for 
this announcement.

You can get the sources from
or with web interface:

Any comments welcomed.
I suggest discussing each plugin in a separate thread.

Thanks to all for help at the beginning of my experience with gnumed.
