Dear all,

Thanks for your message! Do not hesitate to get in touch with me if you have any technical question/request about Orthanc.

Perhaps it would be nice to ask the B2CK team (Cédric Krier and Nicolas Evrard) who is working on the Jamaica project [1], if additional integration work is required to smoothly integrate GNU Health and Orthanc. Since B2CK is located close to me (in Liège, Belgium), it would be quite easy for me to meet them if required.

GNU Health can store medical images at the DB, link them at specific
file server, or access DICOMDIR files, to use with your favorite DICOM

Let me put you in copy with our Belgian friend, Sébastien Jodogne,
author of Orthanc Server [1], a Free/Libre PACS server, which we are
working to fully integrate it with GNU Health.
