System Requirements 

This page explains the requirements for Eyefinity® EHR. These system requirements are routinely reviewed and updated. Download a printable copy of these requirements.

The requirements outlined on this page represent the minimum hardware and system specifications required to effectively use the Eyefinity EHR. Failure to meet these requirements will noticeably degrade the performance of the software.

Ensure that you also meet the requirements for your practice managements software. For example, OfficeMate® users must also meet the system requirements specified on the OfficeMate System Requirements page. If you are unsure about whether your systems meet the minimum requirements, or if you're considering purchasing hardware, hardware support, or a hosting service, click here.

Individual pieces of diagnostic equipment may have their own system requirements. Verify the requirements with your hardware vendor.

 

iPad Requirements


Use any of the following iPad® models running iOS 10.2 or later.

iPad Model Networking Capacity
iPad (fifth generation) Wi-Fi 16 GB or more
iPad mini 2, 3, or 4 Wi-Fi 16 GB or more
iPad Air (any generation) Wi-Fi 16 GB or more
iPad Pro (any generation) Wi-Fi 32 GB or more

 

When acquiring a new iPad, you should always purchase the latest model to ensure the longest useful life. The models listed here represent the minimum requirements. While you can install the latest iOS and Eyefinity EHR on the lowest models listed here, performance may suffer.

Printing from the iPad requires an AirPrint-capable printer. Refer to Apple's AirPrint Basics page for more information about AirPrint.

To verify your practice’s bandwidth, go to Speakeasy Speed Test and select the city closest to you. If your bandwidth does not meet the minimum requirements for your practice type, contact your internet service provider.

 

Wireless Router Requirements


You will need a router to connect your iPad to the internet wirelessly. Select a business-grade router and enable wireless security and encryption for HIPAA compliance. For the best experience, meet or exceed the optimum recommendation.

  Minimum Optimum Recommendation
Wireless standard 802.11n 802.11ac AirPort Extreme
Access points1 One per 3,500 sq. ft. One per 2,500 sq. ft. AirPort Express

 

In addition, we recommend having a 4G LTE cellular hotspot available as a secondary internet connection. While the cellular hotspot is useful in emergencies, you will notice dramatically slower performance, and it is not intended for daily use.

1 Work with your certified network technician to determine the number and placement of access points required for optimum wireless coverage.
