General Questions

Question Answer
How often do new versions come out?

Clinical Office:MPage Edition has been extremely stable since initial release in 2018 and has needed little in the way of regular scheduled maintenance updates.

We are constantly striving to make MPage development as simple and efficient as possible which means that we are always at work developing new components and streamlining the development process. Release of new functionality occurs multiple times a year as new features pass our internal testing procedures.

Can I request new features?

Our goal is to make Clinical Office as feature rich as possible. We understand that sometimes your current project needs may require functionality not available in Clinical Office. Our team is available to write CCL and Angular code as needed on a contract basis. Please contact our sales team to discuss your requirements.

Can you write my MPage? If you need us to write part or all of your MPage, please contact our sales team to discuss your requirements.
Do you offer training? All training material is provided on the Clinical Office website free of charge.
Why can't I build something like Clinical Office myself? The development of Clinical Office:MPage Edition has taken many years of work with thousands of hours of development time invested. While we are sure given enough time and resources, many of you could write something similar. The costs associated with the development time far out-weigh the cost of purchasing a Clinical Office license.
How experienced in Cerner is your development team? Clinical Office:MPage Edition has been developed completely by our founder, John Simpson who has been developing CCL scripts for 24 years and writing MPages for 11 years. There are very few people in the industry with the experience and background in CCL, MPages and more importantly the Cerner Data Model than John.

Technical Questions

Question Answer
Can Clinical Office MPages be used in the Cerner component framework? Adding your Clinical Office:MPage Edition MPages to the Cerner component framework is possible. Implementation instructions are provided here.
Where do I host my MPage? In addition to the local Cerner WebSphere install (static content folder), your MPage can be hosted on any web server regardless of if it is your own web service, a Microsoft Azure App Service or any other online ISP.
Why Angular? Angular is better suited than JQuery when developing complex web applications such as MPages. Angular services, templates and routing offer a streamlined development process that is unparalleled by other JavaScript frameworks.
Which version of Angular does Clinical Office support? Clinical Office:MPage Edition was originally developed on Angular 2 (Version 6) and we test new versions as they are released to ensure compatibility. Angular 12 is the last release of Angular compatible with Internet Explorer and any MPage using Internet Explorer will have to remain on Angular 12. MPages on MS-Edge will however run on any newer version of Angular.
How does Clinical Office fit in with current Cerner standards?

Cerner still heavily uses JQuery to develop their MPages and has developed their own practices for packaging and hosting MPages. Clinical Office:MPage Edition relies entirely on the Cerner developed XMLCCLRequest object (or Discern Web Services) making your MPages compatible with Cerner standards.
