ezEMRx is a browser-based application, which means that it can be accessed from anywhere, provided you enter the correct login credentials using a Mozilla Fire Fox Extended Service Release (ESR) version browser. The Fire Fox version details are subject to change due to ESR updates from Mozilla. Firefox ESR is intended for groups who deploy and maintain the desktop environment in large organizations such as universities, schools, county or city governments, and businesses. ezEMRx can be accessed from any system that runs on Microsoft Windows, Mac OS, or a Linux operating system.
ezEMRx is also offered on the mobility platforms such as Apple iOS. Native apps allow users to access clinical information. The apps are designed to access shells containing user interface pages only. A user will need to sign-in to access any information that is pulled in real-time, directly from the hosted servers, and displayed in the app. This requires constant access to a network connection, as no information is stored on the mobile device. In cases of breach or loss of equipment, the administrator has the option to terminate access.
Workstations should be running the latest security patches for the operating system, as well as an internal firewall, antivirus, and anti-malware software. The workstations should be secured with an individual username and password. The username and password will unlock the workstation upon initial start-up, or when the computer has been locked (either by user action or screen saver initiation). It is also recommended that the disk drive be encrypted.
