Hardware philosophy
Incisive Software is not aligned with any one hardware supplier, or a particular brand of
hardware. We believe this enables you to negotiate the best possible deal with the
supplier of your choice and to have the confidence of non-biased recommendations.
However, we can assist you by helping define what your hardware requirements are likely
to be and to offer recommendations for suitable hardware suppliers whom we have
worked with before.
We do recommend that all hardware configurations are checked with us before purchase.
We strongly recommend quality hardware supplied by a local supplier who can provide
efficient and prompt ‘after sales' service. For the more specialised devices such as
thermal label printers or document scanners we are able to source these items at less
than retail prices.
Where networks are involved, ensure that the same hardware supplier will be carrying
out, or is involved with, the network installation or upgrade.
Operating Platform
Unless otherwise specified, all Incisive applications are designed to be installed on the
Microsoft Windows 32 or 64 bit operating system, on the user’s workstation.
Incisive applications are developed using 32bit tools, so the preference is for 32bit
operating system. Generally they will run on 64bit operating systems without any
significant problems but you will need to make sure that the device drivers (printers etc.)
can run on the 64bit version. 32bit ODBC drivers are needed to connect to the database.
Incisive applications do not run directly on the Apple or Linux operating systems. It is,
however, possible to install Microsoft Windows in virtual environments within the Apple or
Linux systems and run the Incisive applications.
Backup system
A good backup system is mandatory. It is your responsibility to make sure that the backup
occurs, the data is valid, and that the data can be restored to a working state.
For larger systems, a tape backup or other Enterprise level system should be installed onto your
computer. Do not purchase the cheap brands as they consistently fail.
For smaller systems, a good, reasonably priced backup system that is currently very popular is
'writable DVD’s, or external hard drives
Your data is put onto tapes, or other electronic media, which should be kept off-site. In the
event of a major hardware failure, or the building burning down, the data can then be recovered
from the backup media.
If your staff are regularly working late or the computers are frequently not turned off at night you
should consider using backup software that can include a file that is being used by another
computer. Usually, any files that are open are skipped by the backup software and this may
mean that your main database is not being backed up.
If using SQL Server as the database, you should configure the system to perform Transaction
Log backups at frequent intervals during the day and transfer the log files to an offsite or
alternative SQL Server repository. This option is strongly recommended.
It is not the responsibility of Incisive Medical Systems to ensure that the correct files are being
backed up, that the backup media is capable of retaining data, or that regular backups are being
actioned.

Printers
Document printer
Laser printers are required for all printed material.
Do not use Multi-Function-Printers (MFC) because if a fault occurs on any component of the
device (eg scanner) it may mean that none of the functions are then available (eg printer).
Only good quality printers from major brands should be used. Our preferred brand is Hewlett
Packard (HP) as they consistently perform well. With some brands we consistently come
across problems with the printer drivers (Kyocera)
As we can print envelopes, plain A5, plain A4 or pre-printed A4 with letterhead you should
have at least one main printer that has got multiple paper trays.

Recommended
printer
25 pages per minute (or faster)
600 dpi (or greater)
Ethernet network
Manual feed + Std paper tray
Large capacity bin recommended
PCL or Postscript (not JetReady or PC compiled printer jobs)
Hewlett Packard LaserJet P2015 or P4510, or newer models (with
accessories as required)
Label printer
Labels can be printed either as a sheet or individually using a special label printer.
As you can create many different types of labels in the software we recommend the special
label printer as there is less waste of unused labels.

Recommended
printer
16 labels per minute
300 dpi

Direct thermal transfer
Dymo Labelwriter 400 or Brother QL570
Colour Printers
Colour laser printers should not be used for purposes where a fast printing response is
required eg printing receipts at reception, as most colour printer laser printers have a slow
'first page response' time. The delay is often around 20 seconds.
Scanner
A purpose-built, TWAIN compliant, document scanner should be used as these are much more
efficient on 'file size' and scanning speed than the common flat-bed scanner. It is recommended
NOT to use scanners that are incorporated into photocopiers unless the manufacturers can
guarantee the full functionality of all the specifications of their TWAIN driver. Contact Incisive for
recommended high-speed scanners.

Database
All Incisive products use Microsoft SQL Server as the database management system.
Express or Standard
-
Specialist Practice Manager, Private Hospital Manager, InforMED, CPD
The default database that is supplied with the Incisive products is Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2
Express. This edition of the program is free to use but it has some limitations. It is suitable for small
to medium sized practices and hospitals. If the limitations are reached you will need to separately
purchase licenses for the Standard (or other) edition of Microsoft SQL Server as they are not
included in the Incisive product licenses.
Microsoft SQL Server 2014 is supported.
The 32bit or 64bit versions of the Database Engine are able to be used with Incisive applications.

Installation & Configuration
It is not the responsibility of Incisive to install the database management system or ensure that it is
configured for optimal performance. As many other applications also make use of the SQL Server it
is important that the technician looking after your IT system is competent with the management of
SQL Server.
SQL Server Management Studio must be installed on at least one computer – preferably the
computer that Incisive has remote access to.
SQL Server Reporting Services or Analysis Services components are not required to be installed.
Advanced: For large databases, or systems where there is heavy disk access, the MDF and LDF
files should be on separate physical drives. The MDF files should be in a RAID 1 or RAID10 array
and the LDF files should be in a RAID1 or RAID10 array. In addition, you don’t want any other disk
activity on the array with the LDF files. Some advantage can be had by putting the TempDB onto a
drive array with the same configuration as that provided to the LDF files
For requirements and recommendations on the installation and configuration of Microsoft SQL
Server please contact Incisive Medical Systems.

Firewall ports
SQL Server has specific requirements to allow connections through the server firewall
See http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc646023.aspx
Use PortQryV2.exe to test the ports. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/832919
Upgrading to SQL Server
In some practices the run-time edition of Microsoft Access will still be used as the main database.
There is an upgrade path to transfer all of the records in the Access database to the SQL Server
database. Do not use the tools provided with SQL Server for this process. Contact Incisive Medical
Systems for further information.
Backing up
It is not the responsibility of Incisive Medical Systems to provide, configure or ensure the running of a
system that takes a copy of the database for back-up purposes. Note that the Express version of
SQL Server does not include SQL Server Agent and therefore the backup process cannot be
scheduled to run automatically. Third party tools are available to perform this task.
Scripts should be established to run queries that will truncate the transaction log file on a regular
basis.
For larger practices or hospitals, the SQL server should be configured to allow for transaction log
shipping to a standby server. The standby server may be a powerful workstation as it will also
require a copy of SQL Server to be installed on it. Log shipping can occur on an hourly basis. New
files in associated data directories, such as scandocs and images, also need to be transferred on a
daily basis.
db Maintenance
Maintenance Plans that include database indexing should be scheduled to run on at least a monthly
basis. Contact Incisive Medical Systems for further details
Image files
Scanned documents and Image files are stored in the NTFS directory structure, with a record in the
database that links to the file name and location.
For more than 100,000 files the drives should be specified for high speed access and retrieval eg
15,000 rpm SAAS drives.
For optimal read/write configuration the 8.3 filename option should be turned off.
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc781134%28WS.10%29.aspx
Virtual environments
All Incisive applications perform as expected when installed in a virtual environment. However, if
there is a choice, it is still our preference for installations to be performed on physical drives. From a
support point-of-view, if there are performance issues, physical drive installations reduce the
complexity of trying to determine what might be causing it.
It is our experience that the more physical memory available the better the whole virtual environment
performs. If in doubt, add more.
Anti-virus
Configure the anti-virus software on the workstations to exclude real-time scanning of the:
 files in the local \SPMWIN directory of the workstation (and server if used as Terminal
Server)
 scanned document and image files on the server
 shared directory on the server
 database files on the server
Adhere to the recommendations from Microsoft regarding virus scanning on an SQL Server.

NOTES:
1.
The MINIMUM specification is provided to indicate the requirements to allow Incisive applications to
run. However slow performance, lock-ups and crashes may occur, particularly if other software is
running.
2.
The PREFERRED specification indicates the requirements to allow Incisive applications to run and
perform at an optimum level, however higher specifications can be used, and may be needed, if other
software is to be run simultaneously.
3.
The specifications above may need to be increased if other software is running simultaneously or
additional peripheral devices are installed.
 anti-virus programs increase memory & CPU usage.
 an additional 512 Mb RAM should be added if using voice recognition (eg Dragon) software
 tape back-up, digital transcribers, smart-card readers etc. use additional memory
4.
Notebook computers should have similar specifications to the 'Standalone' computer
5.
Power Management features that will automatically put the computer into 'System standby' or
'Hibernation' mode must be disabled. Also disable the power saving function on the network card.
6.
Hard disk size depends on the number of patient records, digital images, scanned documents and other
unrelated data to be stored. Extra storage capability should be allowed for.
7.
Hard disk speed of 7200 rpm is normally adequate but speeds of 10,000 rpm (or faster) improves
retrieval of data for functions involving a lot of disk searching such as monthly statement runs.
8.
Network protocols not being used should be removed. TCP/IP is the only protocol required
9.
Turn off all non-essential graphical features e.g. Aero interface, transition effects etc.
10. Backup hardware and software is normally installed on the server but can be on any computer on the
network as long as the backup hardware is shared to all workstations. Your Technical support office
should install and check that the backups are working successfully and validate the restore process on
a scheduled basis. It is recommended that backups be done on a daily basis, run overnight and a check
put in place for successful completion.
The backup media should then be taken off-site by a security company.
11. A modem or broadband connection will be required for receiving and sending electronic lab results and
documents as well as remote control support from Incisive Medical Systems. If you are faxing directly
from an Incisive application you will require a modem installed on one of the computers in the network,
and a standard telephone line connection.
12. SPM has been tested, and is supported on Microsoft, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2012,
Vista Business, Windows 7.& Windows 8.1 Professional.
Windows 8 RT, XP, ME, 98 and 95 are not supported.
13. All Incisive applications require Administrator account privileges when being installed. Editions of SPM
& PHM that are published after May 2013 will run using the Standard User privileges and no longer
require User Account Control (UAC) to be turned off.
14. Microsoft Terminal Server should be installed on a server dedicated for the purpose of serving thinclient connections. Microsoft SQL Server should NOT be installed on the same server
15. If possible, mail servers such as Microsoft Exchange should be installed onto a separate computer.
16. The computer/server that is hosting the database should not be used as a workstation as well. This can
have a detrimental effect on the speed of the retrieval and delivery of data to the other workstations on
the network. However, this may be unavoidable on a small network (< 3 computers).
17. Internet & email connections
 A 'Virtual Private Network' (VPN) and 'Firewall' should be established if remote access to the
server is required via an internet connection.
 Updates for the Microsoft operating system and associated software should be downloaded and
installed as they become available.
 High quality virus checking and 'Anti-Spyware' software should be used and the associated
definition updates installed as they become available.
