We are happy to announce that our open source application, The Health Monitoring System was dedicated to the nation by Hon'ble Health Minister of Kerala, Smt. P K Sreemathi Teacher by accepting the first copy of the application from Zyxware's CEO Mr. Anoop John on 5th October, 2007. The function was held at the minister's office.

This software, named as Health Monitoring System, is released under GNU General Public License and made available free of cost. This allows anybody to download the source code of the application, edit, modify and use it as per their requirements. This application reduces manual process in reporting of diseases. Hospitals which are internet-enabled can login to the system and submit reports as and when cases are registered.

It also allows hospitals that does not have web access to send paper based reports to a health center (district level) where a data entry operator can enter them into the system or to send soft copies in a specific format that can be imported automatically. This system allows a secure and separate login to different users with different levels of access rights to the system. Users are classified as Government Medical Officers, Hospital Users, Data Access Operators and System Administrators.

Cases reported are displayed on a live map. The GIS interface uses Google Maps for this purpose. Easy visual analysis for the determination of the extend of spread of diseases is possible. Cases are represented by different markers on the map. When a case is reported, it is made available for display on the map immediately, there by making it possible for the authorities to take precautionary steps at the earliest, if required.

This software is the first of its kind developed using open technologies and released as a free and open source software. The source code of the application is available from Sourceforge: Zyxware Health Monitoring System. The application is written in PHP and MySQL. It can be set up on a Linux PC or a Windows PC.
