It can be either software as a service (SaaS) or a traditional client/server solution. It runs on Windows and is a .NET application using the Progress database. Data is encrypted for confidentiality. The price of the package varies depending on how many physicians in the practice are using the system, as well as other contract terms. Medical practices do not need their own IT support staff to run it.

It tracks data for billing and offers reminders to help improve patient care. Doctors can prescribe medications electronically. Patients can get copies of their medical records in several ways other than a printout, including online and via secure messaging.
