Q-BiS designed, installed and is now monitoring a Microsoft Windows Small Business Server solution providing Shared storage, Exchange email and Remote access. ADR was experiencing trouble with receiving large blueprint drawings via email due to the size limitations placed on inbound emails by their email service provider. ADR also wanted to be able to receive emails and access company data while traveling. ADR now is able to receive large emails via their SBS 2008 server using Exchange. They are able to access email anywhere in the world using Outlook Web Access. Should the need arise they can remotely control their office PC's via Remote Web Workplace or they can establish a Virtual Private Network using their Cisco Small Business Wireless VPN router and client software.

Home/Office Move and Wireless network.
Q-BiS was asked to move a number of computers and peripherals from a Business to a home and set them up again with a network.  The client did not want to run a tangle of network cables around the new home/office so a wireless router and 4 network cards would be used to replicate the business network environment.  Q-BiS accomplished this through the utilization of wireless technology from Linksys.   Comcast broadband internet would provide the internet access.  The move, installation and configuration took approximately 6 hours to complete.  Comcast was scheduled to install Broadband two days later.

ome Wireless network.
Q-BiS was asked to install a Linksys Wireless 802.11G Router and enable 3 laptops to access the internet. We configured this router to not broadcast its SSID so that a stranger could not find and access the internet through the home owners wireless router. we  also enabled 128 bit encryption so that the wireless communications could not be intercepted and viewed.

DATA Backup; Hardware and Software Solution
The client desired to secure his practice DATA from loss due to hardware failure or corruption.  Through the use of External USB Hard Disk Drives and Re-Writable Compact Disk Media an inexpensive solution was provided.  On a weekly basis the client would backup his whole hard drive using the external 80 GB USB HDD and Symantec Ghost 2003. This method would facilitate the speedy reconstruction of the clients system with all software and configurations as well as the patient database to the date point at which the backup was made.  To restore the most recent database files the client would perform daily backups of the patient database to a Re-Writable compact disk using Microsoft's Briefcase utility. The client is very pleased with the results and ease with which the backups are performed.

HIPAA Compliance;  Network and Hardware installation
The scope of this project was to assist the client with identifying hardware needed on which to install a HIPAA compliant version of their Patient Database software as well as  provide Internet connectivity with remote access via a VPN solution.  In addition,   provide the knowledge and experience to install, configure,  test and maintain the equipment and network.  This project required that the solution be implemented in stages due to compatibility constraints between the current version of the Database software and the   HIPAA compliant version.  The stages were,  1) Establish a 10/100 Mb 100BaseT network. 2) Install the Windows 2000 server. 3) Install the new HIPAA compliant version of the database software onto the server. 4) Patient database conversion to the new HIPAA compliant software version.   5) Insure the reliable backup of the clients data. 6) Upgrade the  Desktop Operating system to a version which required LOGON at startup as well as  re-authentication after a period of inactivity to meet HIPAA compliance.   Post HIPAA compliance tasks were 1) Internet connectivity 2) Remote network access via Virtual Private Network.
