ESP is a secure, automated system that analyzes electronic medical record (EMR) data to identify and report patients with notifiable diseases to the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. The growing use of electronic medical record systems (EMRs) permits efficient re-use of data already being collected by clinicians during routine private practice, offering an unparalleled opportunity to improve public health practice. Information held in EMR systems includes diagnoses, procedures, laboratory test, and treatment information, as well as patient demographic data. This software permits secure, simple, and robust messaging from electronic medical record systems to public health authorities.
GATE is a software package dedicated to numerical simulations in medical imaging and radiotherapy. It supports simulations of Emission Tomography (Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT)), Computed Tomography (CT), and Radiotherapy experiments. It makes it easy to use existing Monte Carlo simulation packages according to the requirements of a simulation. It allows accurate description of time-dependent phenomena such as source or detector movement and source decay kinetics. It includes well-validated physics models, geometry modeling tools accommodating complex scanner geometries, models for detector electronic response, and efficient visualization utilities. Modelling of CT scans and calculation of dose can also be performed.
SENTENSA Knowledge Miner is a platform independent tool for searching any text. SENTENSA uses robust methods of indexing and searching text, leveraging experience from more than 20 years of information retrieval. SENTENSA products offer advanced text retrieval solutions for large databases that will make your searches for key information fast and effective. You can index on one platform and query on another.
The Sample Inventory Program (SIP) is a laboratory inventory management system (LIMS) for Zope. Many integration tests exist for various aspects of the SIP application, ranging from command line importing of samples and project configuration to CSV Web-based importing of sample modifications.
Aeskulap is a medical image viewer. It is able to load a series of special images stored in the DICOM format for review. It is able to query and fetch DICOM images from archive nodes (also called PACS) over the network. The goal of this project is to create a full open source replacement for commercially available DICOM viewers. It is based on gtkmm, glademm, and gconfmm and designed to run under Linux. Ports of these packages are available for different platforms. It should be quite easy to port It to any platform were these packages are available.
PING is a distributed, Web-based, personally controlled electronic medical record system that is ubiquitously accessible to the nomadic user and built to public standards. It is essentially an inversion of the current approach to medical records, in that the record resides with the patients, who grant permissions to the institutions, clinicians, researchers, and other users of the medical information. It includes various tools and APIs that address the technical aspects of personally controlled health records. Some of these include a Servlet-based, pluggable, Web services server, a Java Swing-based application for viewing and manipulating records, and an application for generating bar codes used to fax documents into a record.
ProActive is a Java library for parallel, distributed, and concurrent computing as well as mobility and security in a uniform framework. It provides a comprehensive API and a graphical interface and is based on an Active Object pattern, a uniform way to encapsulate a remotely accessible object, a thread as an asynchronous activity, an actor with its own script, a server of incoming requests, a mobile and secure agent, and a component with server and client interfaces. It simplifies the programming of applications distributed over a LAN, clusters, an intranet, or Internet GRIDs.
Devices for the measurement of signals use different data formats to store the data on disk. libRASCH provides a common application programming interface to access such signals, regardless of which storage format is used. Additionally, it provides support for processing (e.g. detects beats in an ECG) and viewing the signals. This functionality and the access to the various file formats is realized with plugins.
GeneX Va is a gene expression database supporting storage and analysis of Affymetrix GeneChip technology. It is designed to serve as a secure repository and archive for many researchers' data. It is typically expected to be installed as part of a microarray center; the software is compact enough to install for a single department or even a single user. It includes an Analysis Tree package which includes an ever-expanding set of analytical tools, and has plug-in architecture allowing easy expansion. The "Va" in the name stands for the University of Virginia version, which is a total rewrite of what was originally NCGR's GeneX.
