The VCare system stores a large amount of sensitive data including financial data, medical details etc. In order to ensure that the right people have access to the right data, VCare provides a security system allowing administrators to customise access to various areas within VCare.
System Administrators are able to setup security groups with access rights and then assign users to these groups. A user can belong to a number of groups and they inherit all access from the groups. When the user logs in, VCare will limit what that user can see based on their rights. If a higher level of security is required, administrators can limit access to individual controls on each screen.
Made in Jade
The VCare system has been developed using the JADE Technology Platform. JADE is a high-performance, open software platform delivering targeted solutions for complex business problems. VCare runs on the Microsoft Windows Server platform and can be installed on most servers along side existing applications such as Microsoft Exchange and Microsoft SQL Server. The services are compatible with VMware, Citrix and Microsoft Terminal Services providing many options for deployment and remote support.
The VCare client is installed on the users PC, Citrix or Microsoft Terminal Services server. The client uses the JADE Thin Client Technology to provide remote connection over existing broadband connections. With the thin client, any updates applied to the server are automatically downloaded to the client reducing administrative load on the IT support staff. VCare integrates with Microsoft Word and Microsoft Publisher providing mail merging functionality. Extracts are provided in Comma Separated Value formats compatible with Microsoft Excel. If Adobe Reader is installed, VCare will import and display documents in PDF formats.
For large sites, high availability can be achieved through the use of the JADE Synchronised Database Service providing a hot standby in case of system failure. The data can also be exported to Microsoft SQL database providing a near real time copy of the data for reporting.
