Much open source software is being developed to help improve conditions throughout the world, such as this software developed by CURE International.
The Screening Room
When open source software is used for global health and global relief work, its benefits shine bright. The benefits of open source become very clear when human health and human lives are on the line. In this YouTube video, hear Harrisburg, Pennsylvania software developer Joel Worrall explain about HospitalRun software – open source cloud-based software used at developing world healthcare facilities.
Stay in the loop with the medical outreach work being done by CURE International, the organization that Joel Worrall works for, via the organization’s website, Twitter feed and YouTube channel. And the software described in the video can be found at HospitalRun’s GitHub respository. Go tell it on the mountain, over the hills and everywhere, that open source is expanding hope around the world.
