Eyefinity EHR System Requirements

The requirements outlined in this topic represent the minimum hardware and system specifications required to effectively use Eyefinity EHR. Failure to meet these requirements will noticeably degrade the performance of the software. This page includes the following topics:

Ensure that you also meet the requirements for your practice management system. For example, OfficeMate® users must also meet the system requirements specified on the OfficeMate System Requirements page.

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

iPad

When acquiring a new iPad, you should always purchase the latest model to ensure the longest useful life. The models listed here represent all supported models. While you can install the latest iPadOS 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.

Wireless Keyboards

While Eyefinity EHR is designed to allow you to tap and swipe through patient encounters, you may occasionally need to supplement your visit notes with written annotations. For the best experience, Eyefinity recommends the following iPad keyboards:

  • Apple Smart Keyboard Folio

  • Logitech Slim Folio iPad Keyboard Case

Workstation

The following requirements represent the minimum specifications required by Eyefinity EHR.

If you are running OfficeMate on the same workstation, you must also meet the OfficeMate requirements. Refer to the OfficeMate System Requirements page.

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

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.

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.
