The Client Programming Group assists the UC Irvine School of Medicine and Medical Center information communities in developing and deploying web-based applications and system integration solutions that improve data availability, provide operational support, facilitate decision making, and enhance the productivity of individual users, user groups, and the enterprise as a whole. Plying a wide range of Microsoft technologies, contemporary development tools and techniques, database development and administration expertise, and a wealth of experience in the healthcare information industry, the Client Programming Group collaborates with users to meet the challenges of our diverse and ever-changing information environment.
Client Programming provides assistance to UC Irvine Health departments, programs, divisions, centers, and workgroups in the development and support of inter- and intranet websites, which can include website space, web page design using Marketing Communication-approved web templates and guidelines, database infrastructures, and site hosting.
The Client Programming group also assists the UC Irvine Health community in the development of SharePoint sites. Microsoft Office SharePoint Server provides a single, integrated environment where users and workgroups can efficiently collaborate with team members, post and access organizational materials, manage collaborative efforts and workflow, and leverage business insight to assist in the making of better-informed decisions. SharePoint's features and facilities include:
Allow teams to work together effectively, collaborate on and publish documents, maintain task lists, implement workflows, and share information through the use of wikis and blogs.
Quickly and easily find people, expertise, and content in business applications.
Create and manage documents, records, and web content.
Create workflows and electronic forms to automate and streamline your business processes.
Allow workgroups to easily access critical business information, analyze and view data, and publish reports that can assist in the making of more well-informed decisions.
The Client Programming Group also assists in the integration of systems into, and the inter-communication of data within our diverse information environment. The need to accommodate multiple processing platforms, operating systems, applications, and database technologies pervades the Health Affairs information landscape, from Clinical Management to Student Admissions, from Lab Results to Time and Attendance. Working with user groups and vendors, Client Programming makes use of contemporary technologies to ensure that critical systems and applications communicate and exchange data reliably and accurately.
