Zedmed Specifications


The software installed on your server can adversely affect the performance of the server and impact Zedmed’s performance. Antivirus software is a known example of this. The server specifications are relative to the number of workstations connected. Please consult a qualified technician to discuss your requirements.

Zedmed reserves the right to end support for Windows versions no longer supported by Microsoft.

General requirements

  • Display: 1024 x 768 minimum (1920 x 1080 recommended).
  • Printer: Windows Driver Model (WDM) compatible.
  • All Windows installations should have the latest Windows security patches and updates.
  • A reliable network (LAN/WAN) with bandwidth appropriate for the size of the business.

  • The server must have TLS 1.2 enabled.

Zedmed recommends that practices considering remote desktop connections or VMware Horizon and Citrix environments consult a qualified technician to configure and manage their computer network services. There are many network and environmental considerations that are unique to each customer. It is advisable to contact Zedmed to go through your virtualisation requirements.

Third-party software

Please be aware that although Zedmed will run on the supported operating systems specified, other third-party vendors such as ePrescribing, results downloaders and online appointment engines may have different requirements and may not run as designed if those requirements are not met. It is recommended to confirm the requirements of all third-party applications with the relevant provider prior to committing to an operating system and hardware setup.
