How do companies like ubuntu make money for business survival. I
recently heard on a kpfa program: that doctors are too pressed for
time taking care of patients
during 15 min appointments, that their laptops are too slow and tend
to get between them and patients, that they have to spend too
much time on both data entry updating medical - disease - treatment

seems to me that a doctor updating info on his system might as well do
it for whole world.

Sorry to ask but am on the go.. does an appropriate medical wiki exist?

Why nor design ordinary medical examination rooms systems with 2
screens, one for the Doctor and other for patient to view from
examining table, with doc. printing as at public library?

Why not patient databases? so when away from home doctors can see
whats going on?

why not have medical open source services on line?
