Reply to author | Forward | Print | Individual message | Show original | Report this message | Find messages by this author Has anyone done multi-user, one computer CPRS oriented Windows workstations? If so, can you share your experience? We probably need about 30 workstations running from probably 12 PC's. An ideal solution would be to run 4-6 stations from one PC. Has anyone done this recently? In principle this should be possible with USB hubs, USB keyboards and mice and additional PCI video cards. There are multiple examples of doing this using Linux for desktop (see below) but there does not appear to be as much for Windows (see below) and doesn't appear to have much for what we will probably end up using for the client due to local conditions. Our WorldVistA server is Fedora 9 based.

I have run Tin Clients of a dual-core 1.8 ghz, running WindowsXP. For a chec out. It was able to run the Windows applications using the X{ server. I guess it should be able to run 3-4 Thin Clients, from observing the CPU loads. The bandwidth needed from te server to a CPRS client is about 30-50 kbits/sec.

No, I did not try that. But u would be limited as the multi users would probably be connected over an USB cable, so max of 15 ft. I think.

Igancio-

This is an interesting idea. Is Windows a requirement -- are there other windows-based applications your staff must run at the nursing station as well?

I had researched this many months back, but I remember that a vendor, probably useful.com, has some interesting Configurations where the single server can power 5-10 "Thin Clients".

Psychiatric hospitals are very squeezed by managed care and can afford practically nothing so we need to go as rock-bottom as we can. 1 CPU per 4-6 clinician seems like the least expensive/easiest to manage and fits our layout well versus 4-6 thin client boxes taking up space in the charting areas.

That being the case, then a multi-head Linux box is a real option for your site.

I really like this idea for a busy nursing station. In this model, only one workstation, network connection, etc. is required. There is up-front cost and long-term power savings. It's a green solution too.

As a facility transitions to full electronic clinical documentation and CPOE, we definitely need to make certain providers aren't being forced to queue up due to a limited number of workstations. Not only does this slow down the workflow of the facility, it lowers provider adoption rates as "waiting for a workstation" just becomes just another frustration (there's enough already!) of the transition to an EMR.

The Userful.com solution looks pretty well packaged, but I'm sure rolling your own is do-able as well.

If spyware and trojans are problems, that is more a function of your choice operating system and browser and your network management policies. Web based applications don't have to be open to the internet any more than other networked applications.

Reply to author | Forward | Print | Individual message | Show original | Report this message | Find messages by this author Hi, nice to meet you all.

Just a thought, why not just use a Linux based (flash) thin client ? It ´s cheaper ($200-300 per seat) than hub solutions and its size is not that significant (you could use it as monitor support :)). And if the box crashes just one user gets waiting...

As I´ve said it´s just a thought, in real life I could never escape from Citrix, as RDP alone doesn´t do the job on larger user bases.

Reply to author | Forward | Print | Individual message | Show original | Report this message | Find messages by this author Are you going to be using spare workstations? Or are you going to be buying new hardware? If purchasing new equipment, I wonder if you could purchase a batch of used computers. I know that our hospital periodically replaces all their computers, and they have stacks of them stored until they can find somewhere for all the units to go. I would think that old hardware would be fast enough to run CPRS (as long as the OS doesn't have too much eye candy.)

Reply to author | Forward | Print | Individual message | Show original | Report this message | Find messages by this author Buying a set of used machines at auction or whatever is a possibility but has its pluses and minuses. Right now I'm favoring a multi-headed approach but that could change at any moment ;-) Right now the biggest cost factor is going to be flat-panel displays. They do have to be flat panel and the least expensive I could find is about $130 for a 17 inch. If you are going to buy 20-30 of these it becomes the largest cost.

I have a FOIA request in to get it for all of us sooner than the ftp site release. My luck with FOIA requests has not been great.

After that it is hard to estimate how long it will take the Codeweavers to get it working. They would have to assess it to give us an estimate. We will also need some detailed descriptions of what is not working, so we have some work to do there before they even look at it.

Is there a list somewhere of what does not yet work in CPRS 26?

Probably that list exists, but I trust your judgement John, you have a good eye for discrepancies and a good idea what the system is supposed to do.

Could you create such a list and put it on VistApedia ?

Ok, David, I added a page to VistApedia for such a list (with no content yet).

http://vistapedia.net/index.php?title=CPRS_Installation#Wine/Crossover

Your trust in my judgement is the only discrepancy I can identify. (I have no experience with CPRS on Wine.) But I just downloaded Crossover to make an attempt.

I would very much appreciate details from whomever about where the problems currently exist. Edit the wiki yourself or leave word here, please.

Reply to author | Forward | Print | Individual message | Show original | Report this message | Find messages by this author One option that may be slightly more, but has other advantages is clear cube. http://clearcube.com They say that you can put up to 5 to 6 iports on 1 blade, but if all you are doing is CPRS then I wonder if you could do 10 or more with degradation. Other benefits are that physical security is much better, because the pc is a blade that sits in the data center. The only equipment that would sit at desktop is the iport and monitor. Also if you get 1 extra blade as a spare you can have instant failover.

One thing to think about with a multihead pc option, when 1 pc goes down, the whole nursing station goes down. That make a single pc failure at 9:30 PM on Friday an emergency. I totally get cranking down the money on the hardware, but you get what you pay for. Money spent on good hardware is money saved on tech time working on junk.

funny you should ask...

"CrossOver Linux Standard includes support for multiple bottles. A bottle is a virtual Windows environment with its own isolated C: drive, fonts, registry, and software."

It has been a good while since I've tried Crossover. But now they do store their "wine" in "bottles"

If a serious attempt to move forward is to be made, these need go be firmed up. I think we are just going to have to build a list of known (or even alleged) glitches that we can publish and then test. I put up a page on the wiki for that purpose. It is empty so far, but it could provide a starting place for those who want to test CPRS on either wine or Crossover.

Possibly the other GUI tools that are available should be included as they may provide clues to the remaining problems and potential solutions.

I should have said something. I talked with Ignacio. We are awaiting the CPRS 27 before the Codeweavers get back to work on this. I recommended that Ignacio give up on trying to run it on Wine for now. A lot of it works, but not all of it. We were going to spend the time to find everywhere it did not work, but decided that that time would better be spent on 27 when it was release, not on 26 that is about to be replaced.

I REALLY do want to see this happen, but when the Codeweavers are so busy with paid work and the new CPRS coming out, I think we need to wait rather than burn up the good will we have with them working on a version that is going to be gone in a few months.

Now if somebody has really deep pockets and can pay to get this done, that would change the equation considerably. That is probably going to be a considerable chunk of change, though - probably $40,000 plus. But even if Santa Claus showed up, why spend it now on version 26?

Reply to author | Forward | Print | Individual message | Show original | Remove | Report this message | Find messages by this author We are still experimenting with multi-seat systems without conclusion yet. What we are planning is 30 permanent workstations over 3 floors for those that do not have, do not want, or forget or have a broken laptop. However, we will very likely have wireless and laptops as well. Can anyone share their policies on that?

Scenarios:

1) Employees, doctors buy or use their own wireless laptop and bring it in. 2) Institutional laptops per floor that stay in the hospital at all times. 3) A mix of 1 and 2.

Pros with 1) have own personal machine. Don't have to compete to get to the institutional ones if there are not enough. Don't have to deal with things others have done. Cons with 1) security, malware, spyware, breakage, non-standard Configurations, pretty much stuck with Windows.

Pros with 2) Can use Linux. Standard Configuration, more secure, never leaves the hospital. Cons with 2) theft, breakage, competition to get it, isn't personal.

Pros with 3) The best of 1 and 2. Cons with 3: the worst of 1 and 2.

Thoughts?

Does any legal entity still exist that owns the copyright (if it exists) to M or M Technology?

I know we all refer to MUMPS as M because it was an attempt to make MUMPS more proper sounding. However was any work ever done to copywrite M at all? I think the Microsoft folks have probably done their homework and recognize they are stepping on toes, but also probably know there is no legal wall to them using this name.

However with GT.M and Cache clearly not using the name, it seems that is just a legacy name (like DSM, MSM, GreyStone, etc.) that will go the way of history.

It also sounds like Microsoft M will be nothing more than a way to force users to use MS SQL.

Anyway this is probably a fight that unless someone has a legal document, or unless WorldVistA officially protests in the Media will be a losing battle.
