Hi all,

as Carsten already mentioned - Compromed was developed by a commercial vendor 
for a long time. Okay, afaik it was developed by a single programmer/doctor, 
based on MS-DOS. And it still is. I met Meditux on the Linuxtag 2006 (because i 
was working for a case study and thought about cooperating with an already used 
system) and they showed me a running version of their work:

- Compromed itself is used as a billing module but is a "full" EMR programm. It 
has been used in around 20-40 surgerys.
- After Compromed got bankrupt / stopped support  (i donŽt know for sure), 
Meditux (or better MultiData-GmbH, where the developers come from) bought it
- Since their first ideas (i think in 2005) they replaced some parts of the old 
DOS-GUI of Compromed with QT4-GUI-Elements and developed a simple document 
management system. Also they invented some statistic features in OpenOffice.

- After they published the first ideas of Meditux, they got into bad trouble 
with their former Partner (COMPUGROUP), because they propagated their software 
as open and independent from the pharma-sponsored systems. Their was lots of 
trouble with their attorneys going around, they published the letters online (i 
think it was on or and ran into trouble again. 

So, its sad but true, that Meditux (or Compromed) is used in around 20 surgerys 
but is going down like "Titanic" - if it isnŽt already at the bottom of the 
sea. Afaik, the main developer of Meditux is receiving mails from the 
Gnumed-Devel List, too. Perhaps he can give an insight of their actual work.
