Java applications provide access to information from any networked terminal within or outside a medical institution. In addition, Java offers scalable, distributed access to data and, therefore, permits real time consultations from multiple locations. This approach to the formidable problem of acquiring distributed medical information facilitates more rapid diagnosis and treatment. As a rule, Java software does not require large amount of system resources and is stable within contemporary operating systems. The use of Java technology is attractive because it accommodates program modules of existing system without interference with operation.
Thus, medical personnel may pull specific information from various sources with minimal of any computer-based knowledge because Java applications are intuitively designed. Use of this technology does not require profound knowledge of computer design and there is often no need to install the Java program at all points of data retrieval
