New in Jamaica

Jamaica has become the first country to implement nation-wide the free health and hospital information system - GNU Health™. It does not include a GIS or mapping component as far as I can tell, though it does provide 'epidemiological and other statistical reports'. Though free it is not Open Source. However, this is major news in the non-traditional use of free software at an enterprise level in the Caribbean.
