Medikin Online offers secure, flexible and unlimited
usage of a cloud-based transcription management system available from
any Internet-connected PC. The foundation of Medikin's solution
is a scalable, multi-tiered infrastructure powered by a robust application
designed in PHP, CGI-Perl, Java, and ActiveX. With a clustered application
design, we are able to easily scale our system to meet the needs
and demands of large and small customers alike.
Access can be made available from any "Thin Client" computer
containing no client software other than a standard Internet browser.
This means there are no hardware or software requirements or limitations
to access Medikin Online. There is no requirement of any special
software for file creation or retrieval apart from Internet Explorer
version 7.0 or newer.
Keeping the end user's client computer as "thin" as possible
ensures optimum performance and operation even over low bandwidth
connections. All the operations are done at the server side and
that's why report queries are very fast and the client machine experiences
the full power of our server.
These features are best used as an advanced three-tier architecture
that employs the latest technologies available in software development
and application hosting. In the Database Tier, Medikin has a SQL-driven
database hosted on a server powered by a cluster of multi-processor
CPUs. The Standby Server provides failsafe operation at the database
tier, with all customer data being stored on an array of mirrored
In the Application Tier, Medikin employs a developed Java solution.
The application servers are also powered by clusters of multi-processor
CPUs. Automatic failover of the application is supported to ensure
mission critical application reliability. Due to this unique design,
additional servers can be deployed without any interruption of service.
In the Presentation or Web Tier, Java Server Pages (JSPs) are hosted
on the Stronghold (Apache) Web Servers. The JSPs in the Presentation
Tier retrieve XML data from the Application Tier and render the
appropriate information to the specific client device on a standard
This three tier hosting architecture also utilizes
a completely failsafe and secure hosting network accomplished through
redundant VLAN technology. Two levels of firewall, both of which
are completely redundant, provide the ultimate in data security.
This outstanding data center architecture provides the highest-level
Application Services possible to any authorized user requiring access
to the system.
