THE MEDISCRIBE© COMPUTING CLOUD SYSTEM
In essences, MEDISCRIBE© has developed an
independent Internet system for the protection of the patient
information. In effect, what MEDISCRIBE© has done is to build
an independent “Cloud” or private Internet system. A
MEDISCRIBE© Cloud user will have a delivery device such as the
iPad, a laptop, desktop computer, pad computer, smart phone, or
other computing resource with a web browser (or other approved
access route) to access the MEDISCRIBE© Cloud system via the
World Wide Web. The user will log into the MEDISCRIBE©
Cloud at a service provider, the doctor’s office, the hospital, the ER Room, or any such preapproved access point. The MEDISCRIBE© Cloud computing works on a client-server basis, using web browser protocols. The MEDISCRIBE© Cloud provides server-based applications and all data services to the authorized user, with outputs displayed on the client device.
Memory allocated to the authorized user is used to make the application data appear on the client system display, but all computations and changes are recorded by the MEDISCRIBE© server, and final results including files created or altered are permanently stored on the MEDISCRIBE© Cloud servers.
Since the MEDISCRIBE© Cloud services are “web-based” they work on multiple platforms, including Linux, Macintosh, and Windows computers. Smart phones, pads and tablet devices with Internet and World Wide Web access also provide MEDISCRIBE© Cloud services to telecommuting and mobile users.
MEDISCRIBE© pools the processing power of multiple servers in the MEDISCRIBE© Cloud to achieve routine tasks such as backing up of large amounts of data, and large number of clients access the database. With MEDISCRIBE© Cloud computing, clients require only a simple computer, such as netbooks, designed with cloud computing in mind, or even a smartphone, with a connection to the Internet, or a company network, in order to make requests to and receive data from the MEDISCRIBE© Cloud, hence the term “software as a service” (SaaS). Computation and storage is divided among the remote MEDISCRIBE© servers in order to handle large volumes of both, thus the client need not purchase expensive hardware or software to handle the task.
