National Health Informatics Conference -- Hobart 1999

"Littlefish is an Open Source project with the prime focus on the development of a patient information and recall system for community based primary health care providers in the developing world.
Paragraph indent Littlefish will be available to any health service provider who wishes to use it without restriction The Littlefish project is intended to be a freely available computer-based resource for health workers to support them in their decision making. It will contain guidelines and forms for entering, organizing and analysing patient records. It will contain basic information about the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of common health problems as well as references on the web for further information. This information base will be built collectively by users, and will be set up so that users can contribute new information and suggestions, which will then be carefully reviewed and incorported into the approved body of information. Littlefish will work with other health projects and freely share information in a spirit of co-operation and assistance.
