Doesn't such software need an ICD data bank that always needs to get

The ICD and DSM books are very expensive, I doubt that there will be a
free data bank available, but perhaps such information is shared by a
special protocol between health insurance funds, administrative bodies,
doctors etc. and perhaps the protocol is free and open source.

I could imagine that there are several issues, that make it impossible
to provide/get accredited medical FLOS-Software.

To get just a prescription form software, resp. software that can print
on prescription forms from a book of prescription forms shouldn't be
that hard to get, this should be possible to do with any office
