Here's another GNU project I never knew exist until now: GNU Health.

The GNU Health developer announced the release today of Health 3.0. GNU Health is "a Free/Libre project for health practitioners, health institutions and governments. Its modular design allows to be deployed in many different scenarios: from small private offices, to large, national public health systems. It covers the functionality of Electronic Medical Record (EMR), Hospital Management, and Health Information System (HIS)."

GNU Health appears to be primarily used in South America, Mexico, some parts of Africa, the Middle East, and the Philippines. If you want to learn more about GNU Health, visit the project site.
