        Release Notes: This release defaults to using the site. This can be changed through the /Applications/ file. The schedule tab now expects "simple_provider_report". The Labs module was enabled. Some known issues remain: selecting the Transcription or Pictures button crashes the application, and sections load slowly as each button completely reinitializes that section. The icons are currently hideous, too big, and strange.

          Release Notes: An error was found on some systems in which the sequence which records patient record numbers won't initialize itself. You must run this SQL statement after installation to do so: "INSERT INTO `record_sequence` VALUES (1000);". Demo data is not included. Note that default permissions are not very restrictive.

            terrific system
            We used to use Centricity from GE and were able to transition to ClearHealth with very few problems. Amazing system whether it was open source or not, because it open source all the more impressive.

            Their commercial support is very reasonable. Now we are free from lockin and outrageous support charges, thanks clearhealth.
