Technical Data

This bridge sends patient data to the specified InfoFile. It then launches XDR and passes the name of the InfoFile as a command line argument.

XDR now has a standalone MySQL installer that creates a separate MySQL service named MyXDR which uses port 3310 (MySQL for OD uses port 3306). The typical XDR install location is C:\XDR\MyXDR. The complete install, including the bin and data directories are in that location. The drive will vary depending on customer needs and hardware setup. The MyXDR instance should not interfere with any current or future install of MySQL, so long as it does not use port 3310.

Multiple Locations

XDR can store images in 3 different ways:

  1. Flat files and folders.
  2. Hybrid, where metadata is in SQL database, but images are in files.
  3. SQL database, with images stored directly in the database itself.

For multiple locations, the currently recommended solution is to use a single central SQL database to store images. All locations should be connected by a fast VPN, and then the images are all accessed from each location by connecting to the SQL database.
