In September 2017 Oracle has released version 9 of Java, which is no longer compatible with the current GECAMed version 2.07.04.
Due to changes in the Java 9 libraries the current GECAMed client fails at startup. You can still use the GECAMed client on any platform with Java 8 installed.
We apologize for the inconvenience.
Release date: 11/12/2017
This is a purely technical release, needed to prolong GECAMed's Java Code Signing Certificate for one more year. Functionally the 2.07.04 is identical to the 2.07.03 release - no new features or bug fixes are included, and Java 9 compatibility is not provided.
Passed that date, older versions than the 2.07.04 will be blocked by Java Security, if you are using Java Webstart to launch the GECAMed clients (the default start method). Basically that means you won't be able to start the GECAMed client as before.
As an alternative to upgrading GECAMed now, you can also install a GECAMed client locally on your workstation. This avoids Java Webstart completely, but also has some disadvantages: clients on different workstations are no longer updated automatically after upgrading the GECAMed server, and therefore need to be reinstalled manually on every work station where they are needed.
See http://www.gecamed.lu/faq/general/client_installation for instructions on the manual client installation.
After upgrading to the new version 2.07.04, you will see the following warning during client startup because of the changed publisher certificate:
Click the do-not-show-this-again checkbox before pressing “Run”, if you don't want to see this message again.
Release date: 10/04/2017
Patch release with some rather urgent fixes. In particular, a blocking problem with the GECAMed updater/installer that occurred after a recent Windows update (Windows 7 - 10) (1891).
An interesting new feature is the availability of the “Liste commerciale de médicaments” in the GECAMed prescription. Simply start typing the commercial name of the drug in the prescription entry field, then activate the autocompleter by hitting the Ctl-Space key on the keyboard. This brings up the list of all commercially available drugs, matching the text you have typed so far.
The original list is published by the CNS in PDF format from the following web page: http://www.cns.public.lu/fr/legislations/textes-coordonnes/liste-med-comm.html
Public release date: 16/3/2017
This patch release fixes 2 bugs when creating hospitalized invoices or using invoice templates
Public release date: 13/3/2017

Pre-release date: 9/2/20117
Public release date: 6/3/2017
This minor release contains some new features and optiopns as well as the usual bug fixes and improvements.
The payment dialog had a lot of troubles, some more serious than others. This has led in some cases to missing or wrong ledger entries, which can disturb the practice's internal accounting. 7 tickets related to that subject have been fixed. Please ckech the payment dialog section in the User Manual.
GECAMed comes out of the box with a fixed set of filters for the patient history ('Full View', 'Diagnosis', 'Letters', 'Files', 'Prescriptions', 'Forms', 'CDA'). Additional ad hoc filter criteria can be entered like the type of document, a date range and a text search criteria. However, those ad hoc filters could not be saved until now, and no additional filters could be added.
To get rid of these shortcomings, release 2.07.00 introduces fully customizabe filters for the patient history. Doctors can now define their own filters based an a type selection and a text criteria. Full management of all filters, comprising the standard ones, is now possible for a user with admin rights.
I. e., here you can see how a custom filter for the new “Ordonnances Médicales Kinésithérapie” would look like:
Until now the invoice trash could not be emptied, except with a series of DELETE operations on the DB. Now there is a user level function to do exactly this.
Users have complaint that the GECAMed internal Patient ID is displayed in several places. Now there is an option to hide it again.
Bank accounts for physicians and the practice can not be deleted once they have been used in a settlement. This new feature allows to hide them in the payment dialog, so that unused or obsolete accounts won't bother anymore during settlement operations.
Due to interferences between a voice dictation software and non-customizable short keys in the patient module we decided to introduce an option to deactivate those shotcuts alltogether. See Funktionstasten.
(*) Will still be an issue when an upgrade is applied to a GECAMed originally installed as release 2.06.03.
Any number of things can go wrong during an upgrade operation, resulting in application failure and possibly even data loss. Also it is not excluded that the new release introduces blocking errors, performance bottlenecks or simply contains features you do not like at all. With a full backup it is always possible to restore the system to it's exact state at the moment when the backup has been made. See sections Datensicherung and Datenbank Wiederherstellung on how to perform backup and restore operations.
But don't panic! You can still use youre beloved Mac Book as a GECAMed client workstation.
