To be sure you are getting the most from your Smart Flow account, we might ask you to run a Ping Test. What this will do is gather information on your locations internet infrastructure, checking to make sure the access points are up to par and not dropping packets of data to and from Smart Flow.
It's best to perform this test on ALL computers using Smart Flow (e.g. reception, surgery suite, treatment room, ICU, various departments, etc.)
To run this follow the step below:
1. Download from the App Store "Network Ping Lite" by MochaSoft.
Please note if you are already signed up for our MDM program, the app will already be installed.
It will look like the following:

Document the data by either:
- Copy and pasting information into a document or email
- Take a screenshot
- Consistent numbers, 30ms
- No wildly changing numbers
- "Timed out"
- Findings > 30ms
