The full name of the project is Portable System for Telehealth and Health Informatics in Rural & Remote Areas.

THIRRA is an Open Source project under the PAN Asian Collaboration for Evidence-based eHealth Adoption and Application (PANACeA), funded by the IDRC. The source codes are hosted by Sourceforge.

THIRRA is a web based application primarily for use over the narrowband Internet. As such, the user only needs to have internet connectivity and a web browser that supports XHTML, such as Mozilla Firefox, Opera, Google Chrome, etc.

THIRRA utilises the database models from PCDOM PrimaCare Electronic Medical Records and Clinic Management System developed by the Primary Care Doctors Organisation Malaysia, licensed under the PCDOM Public License.

THIRRA EHR is also interfaced with the Generic Engine for Modules to extend its clinical modules.

The license for the software is the Mozilla Public License v1.1.

  2. Electronic Health Records System (EHR) - Malaysia, Nepal and Philippines
