For optimal performance, we suggest office machines run Microsoft Windows, Internet Explorer, and Office, and other purchased commercial software only. Avoid downloads such as internet toolbars, popup blockers, etc.

Your connection should meet the following minimums:
|Concurrent users (sharing this connection)||Min Download*||Min Upload*|
|1-5 concurrent users||1.5 Mb/s||512 Kb/s|
|6-15 concurrent users||5 Mb/s||1 Mb/s|
|16-25 concurrent users||10 Mb/s||3 Mb/s|
|26+ concurrent users||T1 or higher|
|Latency test average**||< 100 ms|
* Recommended tested speed. This is the tested actual speed, not the speed listed by your Internet Service Provider. Much like automobile gas mileage ratings, your actual speed may vary from the listed speed.
** From a command prompt, type “ping www.advancedmd.com”. The result average time should be less than 100 milliseconds.
Verify your network speed with speedtest.net.
Heavy usage: If you are a billing office, you should consider the next higher level of recommended speeds for your office size.
Other Internet traffic: The speeds recommended pertain to the Momentum applications only. If there is additional Internet traffic in the office (web browsing, etc.), you may wish to use higher speeds.
Multiple locations: We strongly recommend an independent Internet connection for each location.
Momentum EHR has faster Internet bandwidth requirements and we recommend minimum requirements for connections to help you achieve an optimal experience.
Home Internet service bandwidth packages, such as DSL packages, provide a higher speed for downloading information and a much lower speed for upload of information. The Momentum EHR software downloads patient historical information as well as uploads the documentation inputs and data scanned into to the patient record. This interaction requires a higher upload speed than most home Internet service packages offered.
Momentum EHR requires a minimum upload and download bandwidth rate of 1.5 Mb/s for the Momentum EHR application. If the practice has other applications or Internet uses, the connection must be greater than 1.5 Mb/s.
The table below provides the required ISP bandwidth recommendations for an optimal Momentum EHR experience. Please note that these numbers are estimates based upon average product usage. Extensive use of scanned documents may require higher bandwidth speeds.
|Concurrent Users (Sharing Single Connection)||Min Download||Min Upload||Rec. Upload|
|1-5 concurrent users with latency <100ms||1.5 Mb/s||1.5 Mb/s||5 Mb/s|
|6-19 concurrent users with latency <100ms||3 Mb/s||3 Mb/s||10 Mb/s|
|>20 concurrent users||Call for recommendation|
*Upload speed is important when using Momentum EHR compared to just normal Internet browsing.
*Bandwidth requirements vary based upon number of users, amount of activity, and the size of file attachments.
*If there is additional Internet traffic in the office, you may wish to use higher speeds.
*When checking with Internet Service Providers (ISP) you need to ask for definite upload speeds within a very small range that they can guarantee.
*Connecting multiple locations? We recommend an independent Internet connection for each location.
*The speeds recommended in the table above pertain to the Momentum EHR application only.
PCs will need access to the Internet either directly or through a local area network. Most business broadband accounts can service these needs very inexpensively; typical connection types include DSL, Cable, Wireless, or fractional T1 lines. Note: Satellite service is not recommended, as latency is usually unacceptable.
•Windows compliant laser printer (recommend HP)
•Optional: Label printer (recommend Seiko or Dymo)
•TWAIN-compliant full-sheet scanner (recommend CanoScan) that can upload for integrated fax (bulk is recommended)
•Optional: Card scanner for insurance cards (recommend ScanShell 800NR for Windows 7 & 8)
•Should have a local connection to the PC (not network only)
