Introduction to the Demo Database
GNU Health default installation comes with no data. It's interesting, for academic and training purposes to have some demo data that exemplifies concepts and improves the learning curve.
The demo database is an ongoing project and it will be adapting to the each new GNU Health version. The clinical history will also grow with time.
For consistency sake, it's important to have the main characters information constant (family members name, birth dates and place, health centers, family doctors etc.). The information and characters are fictitious and we should try to make it valid for different cultures.
The Zenon-Betz Family
The story goes around the Betz family, and the main character, Ana Betz, a primary school teacher.

Online Community Servers
We have two main community servers available in the Internet so you can connect and try the latest GNU Health. This is probably the simplest way to check out GNU Health for the first time.
- federation.gnuhealth.org: The GNU Health Federation community hub. Contains the latest stable version
- health.gnusolidario.org : This server holds the previous stable version of GNU Health HMIS and LIMS servers (3.2)
GNU Health Federation Community Hub
federation.gnuhealth.org: The GNU Health Federation community hub. Contains the latest stable version of the following components :
- Thalamus message server
- Health Information System and Person Master Index
- GNU Health HMIS and LIMS nodes
- GNU Health WebDAV server and calendaring system
In addition, it's backed by the following servers
- openSUSE 15 Leap
- PostgreSQL 10
- Gunicorn 19
Connection to the GNU Health HMIS and LIMS
1. Install the GNU Health client (GNU/Linux, FreeBSD or other *NIX)
Proceed as explained in the GNU Health Client Installation section
2. Use the following server and credentials:
| Server: federation.gnuhealth.org
Note : The community server database resets itself everyday at 00:30 UTC , so we have clean demo data. That means that you can also play and experiment with it without fear of "breaking" the DB :) .
Connection to the Health Information System via Browser
You can connect to the community hub HIS using a secure connection :
Older stable version
This server holds the previous stable version of GNU Health HMIS and LIMS servers (3.2). It uses the same credentials, and the database name is health32
For developers : There is a developer database ("air32") that runs on the latest development version. To connect to the developer community server, use port 9555, with the same credentials. Needless to say, the developer version is highly unstable, and is just for developers.
Local Demo Database
This method should give the most up-to-date demo database.
As the gnuhealth user, change to the home directory
$ cd $HOME
Download the newest demo database from the download directory
$ wget -O healthdemo.sql.gz http://health.gnu.org/downloads/postgres_dumps/gnuhealth-32-demo.sql.gz
Extract the archive.
$ gunzip -c healthdemo.sql.gz > healthdemo.sql
Create an empty database to hold the demo database.
$ createdb healthdemo
Import the demo database.
$ psql healthdemo < healthdemo.sql
Finally, we make sure that the "path" entry on the gnuhealth server configuration file is pointing to the right directory
You should see a line under the [database] section like this
path = /home/gnuhealth/attach
That is the value by default, so if you have not changed it, it should be OK.
Now enter the database through Tryton client (as non-gnuhealth user)
- Database: healthdemo
- Username: admin
- Password: gnusolidario
There is a user "admin_es" that uses the Spanish language.
- Optionally 1>/tmp/log 2>/tmp/err may be added at the end of the line. For large databases and not so large computers, it could accelerate the load, while providing some clues just in case.
