MediBase Transfer module

By means of the transfer module it is possible to transfer data on the first location at the end of the day or at regular intervals to a computer on the second location. When the transfer module is active any changes to the datafile (newly added patients, modified patient records, changes to the different help files) are kept continuously during normal operation.

When quitting the program, the transfer folder will be filled.

All changes to the workstation are kept in the transfer folder. Every station that has to receive the changes made on the other stations has its own subfolder in the transfer folder, where all the changes are dropped. In order to get these changes to a station in a different location this subfolder can be copied on a disk or on a USB stick. When one arrives on the 2nd location the contents of the disk or USB stick are placed in the transfer folder of the next station. When starting the program the contents of the folder will be automatically loaded into the datafile. As an alternative for disk/stick one can also opt to send the transfer files by regular e-mail to the other location.

The transfer system is also an ideal solution for users with a portable computer. For instance, all the changes in the computer on the secretariat are transferred to the portable by means of the transfer system. After working with the portable the new data is in turn sent back to the desktop pc of the secretariat.

TRANSFERRING IN A NETWORK ENVIRONMENT : it is also possible to use the transfer system in network, as an alternative to the (more expensive) multi-user environment. In certain practices there is no real need for a genuine multi-user network. Often there is a redistribution of tasks and each station is responsible for part of the daily routine. In order to provide each station with all the data input from the other stations, every station transmits its changes on regular intervals to a transfer folder which is placed in network. The other stations in turn detect the content present in their own subfolder and upload it automatically. When there is no redistribution of tasks and the different stations in the network need a constant feed of all the data input on all the stations, a genuine multi-user environment with 4D software is required.

General description transfer module :

- synching of data between different locations
- semi-multiuser with smaller networks
