Universal, Browser Independent Access to Quantros Applications Driving
SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Quantros, a leading provider of hosted, Web-native safety and quality solutions for the healthcare industry, today announced a series of activities for support of alternative Web browsers using Quantros applications. Support for browsers such as Firefox and Safari are being implemented to ensure those using a browser other than market leader Microsoft Internet Explorer can access the Quantros Suite of Solutions that today includes Safety and Risk Management (SRM), Regulatory Reporting Management (RRM), Accreditation and Compliance Excellence (ACE) and Insight offerings. Today more than 25 percent of the world uses a non Microsoft Web browser. Quantros, while still completely committed to providing applications optimized for Microsoft Internet Explorer, sees this expansion as beneficial to all users of its applications. More than 2,000 healthcare facilities and hundreds of thousands of people use Quantros applications via the Internet to help manage and improve patient safety and quality.
The Web browser market continues to evolve and a greater number of healthcare organizations throughout the world are choosing to maintain multiple Web browsers. This is in part driven by an increasing number of healthcare providers considering the Linux open source platform in addition to the Microsoft Windows platform. Quantros wants to ensure that regardless of the IT Web browser strategy deployed, healthcare providers can seamlessly use Quantros applications within their environment.
Chris Bethell, VP of Marketing for Quantros notes, "Microsoft Internet Explorer still garners a commanding share of the Web browser market and Quantros remains committed to using the latest Web 2.0 technologies optimized for Microsoft Internet Explorer. However, there is a trend within the global enterprise market towards alternative browsers such as Firefox. Quantros wants to ensure its Web-native applications are optimized and available for use regardless of the Web browser strategy deployed by healthcare IT organizations."
Quantros has made a number of adjustments to its application and
platform environment in support of this initiative including:
-- Alignment of all application code with W3C standards
-- Use of server-side technologies and utilities that work across all major
Web browser types
-- Server side MSXML deployment, which provides application level benefits
without requiring the utility at the desktop
-- Utilization of Web 2.0 components in alignment with open source standards
-- Deploying a combination of style sheets and tables for cross-browser
"Quantros applications have always maintained the highest standards for Web-native applications," noted Venky Vaddineni, VP of Engineering for Quantros. "Expanding Web browser support ensures that our applications are optimized for use regardless of which platform a healthcare organization chooses to deploy on their desktops."
