    MAGIC operating system

    Due to HIPPA mandates, our hospital will be upgrading its servers which will run MAGIC. Has anyone seen forums or user groups for this OS? I would appreciate a link.

      A quick search on Google for “MAGIC Operating System” and here’s what I found:

        Our solution is from Meditech, and I have viewed all their info. on Magic on their web pages, but they are not very informative. Who has some experience with this OS?

      I realize this post is a little late. Hopefully the information is still useful.

      MAGIC is MEDITECH’s proprietary operating system. We are a MEDITECH hospital and have been running MAGIC for 10+ years. Our current configuration is running MAGICon Data General Intel based servers using a Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL). With the demise of Data General, MEDITECH developed an Operating System Abstraction Layer (OSAL) that now allows them to run MAGIC on top of Windows 2000 Server on Dell, IBM or Compaq servers.

      The operating system in our configuration is extremely stable. I can’t speak for the OSAL config as we have not yet had any experience with it. The OS is easy to learn an operate, however, it is proprietary.

        I failed to mention that there is an e-mail list called Meditech-L that you can join for Q&A with many very knowledgeable MEDITECH users. It doesn’t matter if you are not yet a MEDITECH customer.

      I have been involved with the MAGIC OS now for approx. 7 years, both as an administrator and engineer.
      If you are looking for something specifically related to MAGIC its hard to find.

      Here in Canada we have this site that all of use to communicate and share info.
      Hope this helps.
