    Okay, so today our entire windows system went down in the Office. We are *finally* considering switching to mac.

    I need to know if there is OS X software that lets you keep patient (medical) records on file, and accessible throughout the network on every mac.

    I also need to know how The networking would work. We have 26 computers at teh moment. Would we need a Mac Server and X Serve, or would everything just work out if we used a Mac Pro or an iMac as our "server"

    Thanks for the help!!

    I haven't used it, but a quick google found EzMedPro - I'd look into it.

    With 26 client computers, you are going to want a server.

    I have nothing againist Mac and I own one but just curious what makes you think this will not happen if you switch over to a Mac OS environment? After all it is still a machine and it can also fail.

    Yes Macintosh is great but it is not the saviour of everything.

    Just my 0.02.;)

    Doesn't your IT people have backups?

    Well, we will be switching over to mac mini's for all the clients from really old dell optiplex pc's. Not only will there be a significant boost in performance, but newer hardware is generally more reliable. I know macs can fail, too... and for our current network, we did a weekly backup of the server (the clients had nothing of importance on them) but i honestly think with a Mac pro or a Mac server, Time Machine could be put to really really good use :D
