For the Developing World

HospitalRun is built to provide the most modern hospital information system possible to the least resourced environments. Read why.

Offline Enabled

HospitalRun is designed to allow records to be carried to remote clinics. It works when the Internet is not avialable, and syncs when it is.


HospitalRun is focused on great user experiences for clinicians, admins, and even contributors.

Saving Time

HospitalRun is optimized for the one resource we can't make more of people's time.

Open Source

The project encourages microindustry around the deployment of the system, but the code is free and open source and always will be.

A Platform for Partnering

We want the project to bring people from the NGO, government, and technology sectors together to solve a world-changing problem.

Open-source software for developing world hospitals

HospitalRun is one of the most popular offline-first electronic health records and hospital information system. The software can be deployed in a variety of healthcare environments: locally on a desktop computer or online within a cloud infrastructure.

Due to its technical feature that allows use even without internet connectivity, HospitalRun is also suitable for clinics located in the most rural areas of the planet. Thanks to the work of volunteers and the financial support of sponsors, HospitalRun will always remain free and open-source to help guarantee the right to health in all countries of the world.

"Building software for the developing world is about embracing the realities of lower-resource settings as a driver - rather than a constraint - for innovation."
