SimpleIPD is a web application for paperless management of hospital admitted patients.
The primary motivation behind creating SimpleIPD is to transition to a paperless system with minimal disruption to the workflow. To this end, SimpleIPD closely adheres to the natural workflow in a traditional hospital.
The system is primarily designed with small hospitals in mind with tightly integrated departments.
All data is centrally hosted and is focused on fast and convenient operations while attempting to keep the complexity to a minimum.
If used in multiple hospitals, each hospital will need a separate server installation.
To install SimpleIPD, you need a webserver with PHP and SQLite support.
The app has been tested with Apache 2.4.38 running PHP 7.3.27 and SQLite 3.27.2.
