Gold Support Plan
The Gold Plan includes the entire Bronze and Silver Plan with additional services added. Critical Support issues have a targeted response time of 120 minutes 24/7 and will take priority over Silver and Bronze support tickets. In the event of a hardware failure, Medweb will priority ship a replacement unit to you, allowing you to keep system down time to an absolute minimum. Warm failover systems will be remotely monitored by Medweb so that the moment a failure of any sort occurs, Medweb’s NOC (network operations center) will take corrective action.
Assistance with New installation, configuration, and routine adds, deletes, and changes are included as a standard part of the Gold Support Plan and include up to 100 hours per year of remote technical assistance, and/or routine monthly maintenance of your server including Medweb management of your server for security updates, RAID maintenance, and user administration. This specifically does not include maintenance of RAIDS, SANS, or other mass storage devices that were not purchased from Medweb, or are used for other purposes aside from providing storage for Medweb servers. This support specifically excludes server reconfiguration due to changes in Your network architecture, user access control lists, or DICOM modality or PACS configuration or replacement. It also specifically excludes HL7 interface changes or reconfiguration, internal firewall or VPN reconfiguration of the Medweb server.
As with other plans, new installation assistance must be scheduled in advance, however, only 24 hours advance notice is required. New installations can be scheduled during weekdays at any time from 7AM to 10 PM PST. Advanced network design, documentation, and maintenance of network design records is also included as part of the Gold Plan. This includes creating a VISIO design of your local network architecture with appropriate IP addresses, AE titles, port numbers, and routing for all devices that communicate with the Medweb server. A copy of this design will be kept as part of the Medweb support database and will be updated as changes and edits occur within your network. This network design will only include local devices. Remote network devices will be displayed as a list external to the local network gateway.
This level of service is ideal for Mission critical servers, which require a Medweb ADVANCED SYSTEM ADMINISTRATOR Certification, and for sites that do not have an on-site administrator and would like Medweb to provide regular remote maintenance and monitoring of their server.
Additional Terms and Conditions for Licenses and Support
All software licenses and support plans have a One-year contract term and are renewed annually.
Annual Software Licenses.
All Medweb servers require annual software licensing. Software licenses are based on the number and type of users who access the Medweb server. Certain organizations have unlimited user licenses per server and should consult their purchase agreement for specific licensing terms. If no maintenance and support plan is purchased, there is still a minimum annual software license fee that will be assessed.
Pre-requisite for Validation of Installation and Support.
An authorized Medweb representative must confirm all hardware design requirements. Site preparation, including wiring, heating, and ventilation, Internet access, etc. is Your responsibility.
Site Readiness Requirements.
The following general requirements must be completed prior to scheduling an installation. The conditions will ensure the best possible environment for the installation, and protection of computers, electronics, and workstations. Pease note that if these conditions are not met at the time of delivery, the Medweb Project Manager will postpone the installation date until such time as we are notified that they have been met. In the event that we arrive and a site is not ready, You will pay an additional installation fee to reschedule the Medweb team for a repeat visit.
• All necessary approvals, permitting, shielding, reviews, required by either state, or local governing agencies will be Your responsibility.
