SBR Health Technical Requirements

SBR Health’s solutions are deployed utilizing a client/server architecture. Here’s what you’ll need to participate in our test Wednesday.


The SBR Health application server runs as a service on any version of Windows (32 or 64 bit) that includes .NET 4.0 or above (Windows 2008 recommended). This ap- plication server can be located on a client’s own premises, on SBR Health’s servers, or hosted by a 3rd party. An instance of MySQL server is also required and can run anywhere — it does not need to be located on the SBR application server but it is highly recommended it be collocated.


The client-side applications are Windows based thin client applications. Supported OS’s are XP with SP3, Windows Vista, Windows 7 (32 and 64 bit). Clients will be available soon for Android and iOS devices as separately supported options. The Clients communicate to the SBR Health application server via TCP/IP through port 5501. SBR Health does not dictate any special client side hardware requirements, but since this client PCs must also run a video conferencing client, it is recom- mended that they be at lease 1.6GHz and have a minimum of 2GB of memory. These PCs must also be equipped with a camera, microphone and speakers.


Installing and setting up an SBR Health server is very easy. SBR Health provides an installation program for which installs and configures the application service. This server application is then pointed to an instance of MySQL server. SBR Health also provides a MySQL script that builds the database and all required tables. The build also configures the server to point to the video communication server(s). On the client side MS Installer scripts (.msi) are supplied for installing the SBR Health client applications. These can be staged on a web server so that links can be provided to the users (doctors and patients) so that the appropriate application is downloaded and installed. If any firewall is in use where SBR Health client applications are be- ing utilized, the firewall must be enabled to allow one way communication out through this port as follows: “ALLOW TCP” where is the IP address of the SBR Health application server.
