This program is an Open Source database/program originally developed by Elroy Sullivan, PhD in conjunction with Shriners Hospitals for Children. This entire program (including the .EXE file, all source code, the database structure, and all Microsoft Office templates) is distributed under the Open Source General Public License version 3 (GPLv3). By downloading this program, you acknowledge and accept the terms of this GPLv3 license.
The following are the download links. However, if you would like more instructions, read below the links.
For validation purposes, the current unzipped file size is: 169,631,744 bytes.
Any one of those links will do, as they’re basically all the same thing. If you are prompted for a User and Password, you can use these for downloading:

If you have trouble with the above, you should be able to log directly into this site as an FTP user with the following link:
The latest database program can be downloaded in three different forms, PatientsAndServices.exe, PatientsAndServices.aaa, or PatientsAndServices.zip. The first two of these are exactly the same. The .aaa version is just to circumvent certain internet policies that don’t allow downloading of .exe files. This third (.zip) is a zipped version of the PatientsAndServices.exe file. It is substantially smaller and may be more convenient for those who know how to unzip a file.
If you are already using an older version of this program (or some of its components) and wish an update, simply download the program and use it to replace (overwrite) the version you currently have. If new tables and/or fields have been added to the actual database (.MDB) file since your last update, these will be automatically added to your current database file without the loss of any data. Data is never deleted during the set-up and/or update procedures of this program.
Some people have a habit of renaming their old PatientsAndServices.exe program before replacing it with a new one. If you do this, just use today’s date as part of the name of the old one. Also, please note that you must have everyone out of the PatientsAndServices.exe program before this update is performed, or it will not go correctly. Typically, when you attempt to copy the new program to your server, Windows will report an error, denying the copy.
Also, if you’re in the habit of saving your old PatientsAndServices.exe programs (renamed with the date), it’s probably advisable to save old copies of the PatientsAndServicesDatabase.mdb file as well (also renamed with the date). If you have any problems with an update, you could simply go back to these prior PatientsAndServices.exe and PatientsAndServicesDatabase.mdb files, and things would be just as they were before the update.
