GNU Health – The most solidary free and open source software

Sometimes I find technologies and free software that pleasantly surprise me. Not only because of its use, but because the impact it can cause. This is the case of GNU Solidario, or GNU Health, recently awarded by the FSF for their solidary contribution.

This software is basically a free and open source platform for managing medical data such as patient records, test results, diagnoses,… Everything any hospital need and use to offer their services.

However, most surprising of all is that GNU Health was born inside a mind of a young computer scientist from Canarias, Luis Falcon. Often, you don’t have to look far away  to find talent that can change the world. We are so used to see foreign names that we don’t realize the talent is really close.
