Thank you el_es, for your response, effort and time, along with your great suggestion. (We love it, but)
Internet access is not an option for this type of telephony usage (We see it as a server pinging out for some unknown or needed reason). Corporate standards and direction are “to keep all we can off the Internet”, this is our direction.
There is a whole committee that over sees this, not just a few as you might think (An act of Congress it’s seems at times). This committee is made up of many different great corporate groups and persons: Perimeter Network, Web Team, Security, Architecture Group, Desk Top Support, etc. etc…
We are fortunate we follow the telecom industry in installing SIP Trunking rather then PRI as in the past. We have been able to install a few “Private Port” DS1’s (Non-Internet carrying circuits) SIP Trunking into our network from our telecom provider as it is today. This is the closest we have come to having Internet into the network. But with private port the telco provider takes on this risk to stop the Internet not the healthcare provider.
Don’t get us wrong, we do have internet within our Corporate Network. But it’s very tight on what is allowed in or out. This is one thing we don’t care to add into our network do to the possible risk in keeping patient care information secure. We do know that to most reading this, it looks to be excessive but the public has demanded it. The liability we (the public and others) have create comes at a cost.
Having FreePBX (Asterisk Server, or any part of it), wanting or waiting to reach out to the internet on every “APPLY” or anything else, does create a risk we don’t need to take, or put our selves into. It also has no real need for us in preforming patient care. This is the service we are here to preform. This “Asterisk Internet connection” is not a priority for healthcare nor for others were sure. We just need our 30 second back we are losing on every “APPLY” that is being spent today. Thus we can become more efficient again.
Again Thank you so much for your thought’s and suggestion el_es this is exactly what we were looking for. We do see it, love it, but it’s not a viable option for us.
Anyone else have a way to speed up the “APPLY” button push, to a second or two? We would love your help and thought’s as el_es has provided.
