High-Level Technical Capabilities of Visions Server Foundation
- A web-based application that utilizes HTTP and HTTPS for data transmission and a browser for client access to the application. The only software required to access the system is a standard web browser.
- Provides a responsive, reliable, highly available service level.
- Offers a quick response to user interaction even over a dial-up connection and availability is over 99.9% with our current clients.
- FAMCare® is built using Visions Server and deployed using a modular approach allowing customers to implement only those pieces that suit their business needs. Current deployments of FAMCare® are hosted in a multi-tiered server environment.
- Is designed around n-tiered architecture.
- Supports multiple protocols and standards for inter-system communications (e.g., HTTP, HTTPS, SSL, VPN, TCP/IP, XML, SOAP).
- Is readily scalable from hundreds of users to ten thousand or more.
- Offers scalability based on server capacity and bandwidth. GVT works with each client to insure sufficient capacity (and future scalability) is available for the application.
Secure & Compliant
Visions Server / Visions Foundation is the proprietary software that handles all the .NET calls within the applications and provides the framework for the application. The Visions Foundation was originally developed to track clinical trials data (Medical information), which meant integrated and tight security, as well as a tamper resistant data design.
This technology was adapted to the current platform that resides on a web server. The Visions Server utilizes a multidimensional security model that is extremely flexible. Users are assigned to groups that define functional duties, including levels of access for each form in the system. Users are also assigned to logical “organizations” that define access roles for individual cases. This is a hierarchical structure that the Visions Server automatically maintains to ensure users can only access cases they are allowed to.
In addition, GVT maintains both in house staff and external relationships to enable HIPAA compliance regarding security. The Visions Server automatically tracks all changes with full audit records for each form. The Visions Server automatically tracks all accesses to data as required by HIPAA guidelines. Finally, individual field level encryption, done at the platform level, ensures confidentiality of the most sensitive data, especially critical on forms, for example, that do AIDS tracking.
From a web security standpoint, the architecture uses https protocol (built into IIS) and also separation of the data servers from the web servers. This means all data access from browsers must go through the application platform, effectively disconnecting the data server directly from the Internet.
