The data model is designed in such a way that centralizes the information, so no duplication occurs.

On the other hand, GNU Health optimizes collaboration and communication between health professionals. For example, a doctor may request an specific lab test for a patient, this is processed by the pathologist which diagnoses it and inputs the result on the system. The doctor now has all the analysis information linked to the patient chart.

GNU Health allows to attach documents (X-rays, Biopsy results, ... ) to the Patient chart.


The information generated and gathered in GNU Health should be standard. We use ICD-10 for pathologies / diseases diagnoses. For example, instead of typing an arbitrary name for the condition, the doctor will be able to choose from over 14000 mutually exclusive classified diseases. This is very important for epidemiological and other statistical studies.

GNU Health uses the information on genetics from the National Center for Biotechnology Information NCBI and Genecards to link genes disorders to diseases. This information is important to evaluate risks of the patient to contract an specific disease and the probability of transmitting it to next generations. GNU Health also registers all the relevant family history information of the patient.

Similarly, the patient history will be in a format that medical centers all over the world would be able to process. Effective, paperless and fast way of practising medicine.


It follows the access control and security model of Tryton.


The main language will be English, but it can be easily translated to any other language using Tryton module translation. We are using Transifex as the translation Portal Today, GNU Health is being translated into Italian, German, Spanish, Bahasa Indonesian, Vietnamese, French, Dutch and Portuguese, among others.
