Where can I find more information on that ?

I have followed the community for some time. GNUmed is largely absent from the
radar as it has no billing component and therefore not large userbase. It is
however an EMR and not aimed at large clinics.
As we are Germany based there has not been any attempt to add US specific
features such as billing.
For the time being I will test if GNUmed runs on the OLPC but if that makes
sense would be up to local deployers.
