Hospital OS is a research and development project for a hospital management software to support small hospitals. It is supported by the Thailand Research Fund and released under the GNU GPL.

With the effort to facilitate the hospitals in the remote areas where technology seems to face difficulties to reach, the developers designed and developed the hospital information system called "Hospital OS". This software is an open source program aimed to provide efficient medical service and hospital management. Despite the lack of budget and technological advance in rural communities, the developers endeavor to create the effective information system together with proficient people and aim to build a sustainable development to every community in Thailand.

Hospital OS is implemented in 95 small rural hospitals and 402 health centres serving at least 5 million patients.[1]
