Look for the “first-timers-only” tag. That’s a decent one. But you’re right this is a large problem and one I personally experienced back when I was self-taught.

Check out OpenEMR if you can. I’m one of the devs on it, but it’s pretty much the only Open Source app available for hospitals and clinics. Does a lot to reduce healthcare costs. Anyway we could always use JS or PHP ppl and would be happy to give you fun starter issues :)

A friend of mine had mentioned OpenEMR a while back and I am a PHP dev. Looking to kickstart this journey. Any links on how to get started would be much appreciated. Thanks.
