One of the things that makes the Amazing Charts Electronic Health Record (EHR/EMR) system so affordable is the ability to run on off-the-shelf computers, which you can buy online or at any office supply or computer store. In fact, you can run Amazing Charts on nearly every PC that you can purchase today.
Amazing Charts can also be used on netbooks and tablet computers, and works on nearly all Windows Operating Systems (e.g., Windows 7, Vista, XP, Small Business Server, and others). Even Apple Macintosh users can use Amazing Charts on computers running Bootcamp, Parallels, or VMware.
When buying a new computer, we recommend you get one that meets or exceeds these specifications:
But, if you have more than a few users, or are using ten or more different computers, we recommend you set up a dedicated computer to hold your Amazing Charts databases.
This server computer should meet or exceed the following specifications:
While many of our clients use a wireless network without any issues, wireless connections may cause slowness and connectivity issues even when configured correctly.
If configured incorrectly, PHI may be exposed, which means you are breaching HIPAA and have a lot of explaining to do.
Amazing Charts thus strongly recommends that all computers are hardwired to the Main ("Server") and that medical practices avoid running their EHR over a wireless network.
