What‘s the difference? As with the open-source website editors, it gets a little confusing. Both LibreOffice and NeoOffice run on the Mac and both are open-source. The interface of both look almost identical at first glance, and they both share largely the same features. So why the redundancy and which should you choose? Well, while LibreOffice runs on both Mac and Windows, NeoOffice is Mac only. It is a special branch or fork of OpenOffice that was developed to quash some of the bugs in the Mac version of OpenOffice. So I would say, if you‘re going to choose one, choose NeoOffice.
OpenMRS (Open Source Medical Records Systems) applications are an online program that has a web-based integrated database DMS that has no limitations unlike the previous two. It tracks down patient‘s treatments, laboratory data management, reporting and analysis, pharmacy stock management and offers decision support. This is a very adaptive, inexpensive and accommodative and sometimes, a free system. This system allows modification by its users in order for it to fit their requirements and capabilities due to its versatility. It may also be used offline in case there is a problem with the internet or when experiencing low-speed internet connectivity since it has a synchronization feature that allows integration, thus, work done offline gets incorporated with the online database.
