This paper introduces the reader to the design considerations and implementation in the development of a client server system for GE Healthcare Technologies (GEHT). It assesses the viability of using new technology to implement a secure reliable distributed system. It also discusses the advantages of the new Microsoft.Net platform over established technologies. Finally, it concludes that the new system can provide data capture and retrieval functionality using a mobile computing device to pass data to an information system for GEHT employees across the globe. Throughout the report the design documentation is represented in the form UML documents to enable the reader to comprehend the workflow and lines of communication of the proposed system.
