Electronic Medical Record Software on the NetBeans Platform

Geertjan Wielenga
Product Manager

Klinika Medical Assistant is an EMR (Electronic Medical Record) software being used in clinics in Manila, Philippines.

By the end of this year, the goal is to migrate the whole system to a lighter version, named Klinika Lite EMR, which will be based on the NetBeans Platform.

Klinika Lite software is the "lighter" version of the Klinika Medical Assistant EMR product, catering more to the private health care management needs of a patient. It is an application designed to monitor vital statistics, generate reports, archive chart history, and analyze health variables. Reports are electronically submitted to a professional medical provider for further management and assessment of patient health. It is a tool that can be used by private nurses and/or care giver type facilities for automation of their paper charts and monitoring tasks.

    Hello Geertjan,

    Is it possible to have a few more detail about the EMR platform or atleast some documentation behind each screen shot. Its kind of difficult to understand what was achieved or how it was achieved by looking at the screenshots.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Zubeir, the screenshots show that the application uses the windowing framework of the NetBeans Platform, with its loosely coupled TopComponents, together with the Lookup mechanism for synchronizing the windows with each other. Also, the application is structured in modules, which makes for an architecture that is easy to understand and maintain, as well as a plugin system enabling external contributors to make available new features from an online app store. Hope that helps. -- Geertjan

    Hello there sir, I have been tasked with creating a software manages healthcare information and I've been doing various researches to find an aspect of healthcare management that I can automate. I came across "record system" (i.e EPR) and I decided to check out if such system had been created in java. I saw Java programs regarding "beta-thalassaemia" before hitting this and I must say I love what you've done though there aren't any documents to guide me through as to how you created this program and the challenges you faced. I have a lot of other questions to ask but this is the first :) I hope to hear from you soon
