Debian GNU/Linux Stable

FreeHealth is developed on Debian GNU/Linux Stable, a free and open source operating system. We recommend that you use this free and secure OS.

Debian Stable will help you preserve

  • your freedoms as a software user
  • the right to privacy of your patients
  • confidentiality and security of your patients' data

Debian Stable is the most secure of all Debian versions.

macOS

The last DMG build for macOS is FreeHealth 0.9.9. To use future releases of FreeHealth on macOS, use a Debian or Ubuntu virtual machine with VirtualBox.

If for some reason it is essential that you should use FreeHealth EHR as a native macOS app, you can ask one of our partners to compile it for you.

Windows

The last Windows build for macOS is FreeHealth 0.10.2. To use future releases of FreeHealth EHR on Windows, use a Debian or Ubuntu virtual machine with VirtualBox.

If for some reason it is essential that you should use guture FreeHealth EHR versions as a native Windows app, you can ask one of our partners to compile it for you.

FreeHealth EHR 0.10 run on Windows 7 (32 bit & 64 bit) and later.

My OS is not officially supported, what should I do?

My OS is free software

If your OS is a GNU/Linux distribution or another Unix based free software distribution, it might already be supported on official or unofficial repositories for your distribution. Have a look at the download center. We will do our best to help you and your community build binaries for your favourite GNU/Linux (or UNIX based) free software OS.

My OS is a proprietary software (Windows or macOS)

Starting from FreeHealth version 0.11, we don't provide binaries for Windows or macOS. You are free to build all applications yourself for your favourite OS with the extensive documentation that exists on this wiki. Please DO NOT ask for support about running or building our applications on proprietary operating systems. We recommend instead that you switch to Debian or Ubuntu. You can also install VirtualBox and use a Linux virtual machine (Debian or Ubuntu). We will soon release a ready-for-use virtual machine based on Debian with FreeHealth EHR and a database pre-installed.
