3. Trying software, Testing or demonstration
4. Source code development
Hospital OS can expand globally, the software can be of great benefits to
healthcare organizations in many countries especially those who also have

Acute upper respiratory infections
In hospital management situations we are
dealing with objectives such as:
J06.0Acute laryngopharyngitis • To optimize Medicare expenditures : We found
association very strong between Hypertension
