Description

The openDCN project aims at promoting citizens participation and at linking citizens to their institutions and other decision makers with information products, a communication framework and, finally, an on-line deliberative space capable to involve them in the decision-making process, i.e. to define and put in action initiatives in the field of governance policies and sustainable development for their territory. The goal of the openDCN project is to enhance the effectiveness of participative processes by conceiving, designing and implementing a socio-technical, computer-enabled, trusted environment for e-participation and fostering the evolution of the classic community-network concept into a new consultative-deliberative paradigm.

Open HospitalUse Case

Open Hospital is an open source HIMS software – Health Information Management System – developed by ISF in order to support hospitals, dispensaries and medical centers in daily operations management. A group of ISF experts volunteers is constantly working to develop it and upgrade it to make it more useful and functional, providing training and advice necessary for the effective and sustainable implementation, even going on site. Currently Open Hospital is installed and used in Italy and in developing countries, mainly in Sub-Saharan Africa (Angola, Benin, Cameroon, Kenya, Madagascar, Tanzania, Uganda) in the Horn of Africa and Islands (Ethiopia, Somaliland) but also in the rest of the world (Afghanistan, Burma, Nepal, Yemen); in Italy the program has been implemented for the management of a particular reality as the CESAIM – Immigrants Health Center in Verona which aims to provide outpatient medical services to migrants without a valid residence permit and health card and therefore having no access to the national health care.
