System Requirements - HealthLink Messaging System (HMS)

Software Requirements for HMS 6.6.5 - As at 1 March 2016

The HMS Client 6.6.5 requires a software environment consisting of one of the listed supported operating systems and a compatible runtime environment.

 

Operating System

Windows

Vista (32 and 64 bit),
Windows 2008 Server (32 and 64 bit),
Windows 7 (32 and 64 bit),
Windows 2008 R2 Server,
Windows 8 (32 and 64 bit),
Windows 8.1 (32 and 64 bit),
Windows 10 (32 and 64 bit)
Windows 2012 Server
Windows 2012 Server R2

MacOS

10.7,10.8,10.9,10.10, 10.11

Runtime Environment

Java[1]

1.6.0



[1] On non-MacOS machines, the HMS 6.6.5 Client installs its own copy of the Java Runtime Environment. This Java Runtime Environment can only be used by the HMS 6.6.5 Client itself and does not interfere with any existing Java installations (i.e. it neither uses nor modifies them). On MacOS machines, the HMS 6.6.5 Client relies on the operating system’s automatic distribution mechanism to use the latest patch level of JRE 1.6.0.

Hardware Requirements for HMS Client 6.6.5 - As at 1 March 2016

The HMS Client provides two major areas of functionality:

  1. Transfer of standard messages (e.g. Referrals) via a file drop interface. This requires just the HMS client next to the EMR server.
  2. HealthLink quantum web component services which include:
  • Provision of web-services integration for message exchange with the EMR
  • The online forms service which enables online form access to a web browser (probably embedded in an EMR program).
