To run UnitedChart on-site at a health care facility,
the following is required:
- Server - The server should be a modern personal computer
with 32+ gigabytes of mirrored disk storage
running Linux or Microsoft Windows, or an Android phone or device.
UnitedChart can also be hosted on cloud providers like Amazon Web
- PCL printer(s) - To print UnitedChart reports and prescriptions,
a networkable two-tray duplexing PCL (Hewlett-Packard type)
compatible laser printer is preferred.
- Workstations - User workstations can be Windows/Apple/Linux
based personal computers, smartphones, tablets, smart TVs, and any
device that has wifi or LAN connectivity and
Internet browser capability.
- LAN - UnitedChart was originally designed to
run over the local area network at the health care facility
(keep in mind it was 1996).
Of course UnitedChart can run over the Internet.
But best performance, uptime, and security is
obtained by deploying it locally.
- Internet - Since UnitedChart runs on your local area
network, Internet connectivity is not required.
This allows UnitedChart to be deployed in remote locations with
the only operational requirement being electricity.
Historically, a majority of the use of UnitedChart has been
on-site at the health care facility,
with less use taking place remotely over the Internet.
With Internet connectivity, a domain name, and a certificate,
your UnitedChart system can be accessed from anywhere using an
Internet browser and https.
- Wireless - UnitedChart can be run over encrypted wireless
links at the health care facility. The Android version of UnitedChart
- Cabling - Before wifi, workstations always used to be
networked through cables, which typically don't have connectivity
problems and are very fast.
- Network operating system -
The server operating system can be Linux, Microsoft Windows,
or Android. If Windows, the UnitedChart server requires a
32-bit or 64-bit version (Windows 95 or after).
- Internet browsers - Workstations, smartphones, and devices
typically run Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, or Safari.
While UnitedChart has not been tested with every browser, it should
be compatible with all browsers of any version level.
