Odoo Medical

This module extends Odoo with the base functionality of medical patients.


This module depends on modules located in the following repos: * https://github.com/OCA/partner-contact

Check the __manifest__.py for the specific dependencies.



Patients are available in the Medical App, in the Patients submenu.

Medical Abstract Entity

The Medical Abstract Entity (medical.abstract.entity) is an AbstractModel that provides for a central base that all medical entities should inherit from.

A Medical Entity is any partner that also requires a medical context. Examples:

  • MedicalCenter
  • MedicalPatient
  • MedicalPhysician
  • MedicalPharmacy

Some base views are also provided in order to make it easy to create new medical entities & maintain uniformity between them:

  • Kanban - medical_asbsract_entity_view_kanban
  • Tree - medical_asbsract_entity_view_tree
  • Form - medical_asbsract_entity_view_form
  • Search - medical_asbsract_entity_view_search

When inheriting these views, you must define the inheritance mode as primary, such as in the following example:

Take a look at medical/views/medical_patient.xml, or any of the other medical entity views for more examples.

The current project as it is today represents an evolution of the original work started by Luis Falcon. See https://sourceforge.net/projects/medical/files/Oldfiles/1.0.1, that later became GNU Health (see http://health.gnu.org/). The original code was licensed under GPL.

On Nov 27, 2012 derivative code was published in https://github.com/OCA/vertical-medical, by Tech-Receptives Solutions Pvt. Ltd., licensed under AGPL. The license change was unauthorized by the original author. See https://github.com/OCA/vertical-medical/commit/f0a664749edaea36f6749c34bfb04f1fc4cc9ea4

On Feb 17, 2017 the branch 9.0 of the project was relicensed to LGPL. https://github.com/OCA/vertical-medical/pull/166. Various prior contributors approved the relicense, but not all.

On Jan 25, 2018, GNU Health claimed that the original code and attribution should be respected, and after further investigation the Odoo Community Association Board agreed to switch the license back to GPL v3 to respect the rights of the original author.

Although no trace of relationship was found between the code at the date and the original code from 2012, through the commit history of the project one can see that the current status of the project is the end result of an evolutionary process. The Odoo Community Association Board concluded that the original license should be respected for ethical reasons.
