It’s been several years since I have the eagerness to develop a clinical laboratory application. The reason is primarily because although I’m a professional software programmer/developer now, my bachelor degree was in Medical Technology.
Initially I was thinking of a LIS type of application, where the medtech can store the patients and test information in the database. But then I had the idea of taking it steps further, “Why not make it a smart application? Where it will be able to assist medtech by taking the patient’s profile and results history into account?”
Thus, the LabGence name is derived from “Laboratory Intelligence”, and it’s goal is to be the smart application that medtechs can rely on.
For Software Developers / Programmers
During the course of the project I will post my notes on both software development practices and programming techniques. I don’t claim that I’m a know-it-all in this field, I’m just a student of the disciplines with a strong passion to learn and implement the best practices.
If you’re interested in software development best practices and agile methods, you may want to follow this project through my twitter @djitz.
The project is open-source, and at this point in time is not under any license, so you can use any part of the project other than the “LabGence” name and logo.
The project source codes is available at GitHub: LabGence project on GitHub.
For Medical Technologist / Clinical Laboratory Scientist
While the project is in development stage, there may not be a be a user-friendly version of the application.
