GEMS software can be installed on either single or multiple networked workstations. GEMS is also available in several different versions to meet your specific monitoring needs.

GEMS™ - Database MS Access or MS SQL The GEMS Database is where all your GEMS patient and physician data is stored. GEMS can either use MS Access or MS SQL formats for its database structure. The Database structure is created through the GEMS program. Databases can be stored locally or on a network, depended on the version purchased.

GEMS™ - ECG Warehouse File Storage Location The GEMS ECG Warehouse is the set location of where your GEMS ECG files are stored and viewed from. On a networked GEMS environment, the ECGS are usually stored on a server with the GEMS Database.

ECG Server Service Installed Service (multi-workstation setups only) The ECG Server Service runs as a Service on the workstation or Server that stores the GEMS ECG Warehouse. This service broadcasts the ECG warehouse location to all GEMS PCs throughout your GEMS network. This allows for centralized storage of all ECGs.
