Care2x (formerly Care 2002) is software for hospitals and health care organizations. It is designed to integrate the different information systems existing in these organizations into a single efficient system. It solves the problems inherent in a network of multiple programs that are incompatible with each other. It can integrate almost any type of services, systems, departments, clinics, processes, data, or communication that exist in a hospital. Its design can even handle non-medical services or functions like security or maintenance. All of its functions can be accessed with a Web browser, and all program modules are processed on the server side.
Drugref is a collaborative effort to create and maintain a database of pharmaceutical reference information, tagged by language, country, and reference source. A Web interface written in PHP4 allows the community of health professionals to maintain and review content. The database structure, implemented in PostgreSQL, is designed to facilitate automated decision support. "Tagging" allows one to import information from any source in parallel, thus allowing drugref to work as a generic interface to any kind of (comercially or freely) available drug reference information.
