A simple distributed electronic health records system. Our prototype allows rural clinics to operate electronic medical records even with unreliable access to the internet and power grid. We achieve this by storing very cheap ($35 USD), low power servers in each point of care. These servers can provide access to the EHR even if access to the global internet is down. We have devised a strategy for data synchronization and backup, and for updating the software on the remote servers. These strategies have not been fully implemented, but have been planned.
