healthcare : Manage healthcare providers

The lino_xl.lib.healthcare plugin adds functionality for managing health care situations of your clients.

You specify for each of your clients which tariff and plan they have regarding health care. Optionally you can have a history of these per client.

You may use this to issue cost-sharing invoices to your clients' health care providers.

This document uses demo configuration for the context in Belgium.

This is a tested document. The following instructions are used for initialization:

>>> import lino
>>> lino.startup('lino_book.projects.lydia.settings.doctests')
>>> from lino.api.doctest import *


As the application developer you choose one of the following usages:

  • users want to record only the current situation of a client. In that case you have your application's client model inherit from HealthcareSubject.

  • users want to record a history of situations per client. In that case you add SituationsByClient to the detail layout of your client model and make sure to set Plugin.client_model.

Healthcare plans

A healthcare plan is a method that can be chosen by natural persons for their health insurance. Depending on national laws the provider can be either a public institution or a private company.

There is usually a finite number of healthcare plans, usually each plan has a reference.

The healthcare tariff of a physical person expresses their status regarding health care conditions. It is assigned by law, not by a given provider.

This is the client's share of the costs invoiced to the client.


The provider's share of the costs which you will invoice to the provider.

Note that this part is not yet used on the field. The client_fee might be useless, we must maybe rather inject a checkbox field "healthcare_shared" to Product.
