The Ubuntu-Med project is a Kubuntu-based operating system customization created to provide a co-ordinated operating system and collection of available free software packages that are suited to the requirements of medical practices and research.


Ubuntu-Med includes packages in the categories:

  • Electronic health record (electronic medical record) server / client systems:
  • Medical practice and patient management
  • Medical imaging
  • Documentation and research
  • Other software:

All software and packages are open-source, with a goal of GPL-licensure.

This system has been in use by some medical practitioners.[1]


Ubuntu-Med is available as a self-installing Live CD image (which is a Kubuntu remaster) or as a Filesystem Archive. Both are available from the project website at Sourceforge.
