Recommended Hardware & Technical Specifications

To experience all the advantages of OfficeEMR™, the following technical requirements must be met prior to completing implementation. Clients are responsible for adhering to OfficeEMR™’s technical requirements.

High Speed Internet Connection Recommendations

PCs will need to access the Internet directly or through a local area network. Most business broadband accounts can service these needs very inexpensively; typical connection types include DSL, Cable, Fiber, Wireless, or T1 lines. The table below provides the required ISP bandwidth recommendations. Please note that these numbers are estimates based upon average product usage. Extensive use of scanning documents may require higher bandwidth speeds. In most situations you will want to have the middle or highest Business Class Internet plan from your ISP. Clients are responsible for troubleshooting network issues (latency, packet loss, etc.) outside of iSalus’s firewall (i.e. from users’ workstations to If there is additional Internet traffic in the office, you may wish to use higher speeds.

Office Size Minimum Upload Speed Minimum Download Speed
1-5 concurrent users with latency < 100 ms 3 Mb/s 5 Mb/s
6-10 concurrent users with latency < 100 ms 4 Mb/s 8 Mb/s
11-20 concurrent users with latency < 100 ms 5 Mb/s 10 Mb/s
21-30 concurrent users with latency < 100 ms 7 Mb/s 12 Mb/s
More than 30 concurrent users with latency < 100 ms 10 Mb/s 12 Mb/s

Hardware Recommendations

In order to guarantee reliable support and the latest in technology, it may be
advantageous to acquire a lease and support agreements for your hardware. As
operating systems, internet browsers and other technology enhancements are made
available, hardware recommendations may be updated. Check back for updates.
Finally, the best piece of advice we can give you is to purchase quality
products from brand names such as Microsoft, DELL, HP, and Lenovo, and have a
professional set it all up.

The Intel Atom processors are lower performing processors and are not as fast as
the Intel Core i or M Series processors. Many clients will not be happy with the
performance of OfficeEMR™ using the Atom processors. Exception being the
Microsoft Surface Pro 3. Screen Resolution Heights lower than 864 (second number
- 1920 x 1080) will zoom in electronic documents making them not very useful and
hard to work with. This can also make some screens difficult to work in, i.e.
Drug Search Window, Billing windows. In IE pressing the “F11” key puts IE in
full screen mode. This will help when working in lower screen resolution
