Whenever we hear a clinic say that Jane is running slow, we like to offer the following tips to help them get back up to speed. ;)
First, what needs to be determined is where Jane is getting held up. On the browser? On the device? On the internet connection? Or on the app? If you take the following steps, we suspect Jane will run nice and smoothly for you again. The first two on the list are for troubleshooting purposes only. The remainder can actually correct the blocking issue.
1. Check Jane’s Status Page
You can access this from two locations in Jane, the drop-down menu on the upper right-hand portion of your screen is one.
Or you can view Jane’s status page by using the Need Help? feature.
A window will pop up that looks like the screenshot below. Click the blue View Status Page button.
If Jane is experiencing any delays, we will keep you posted here.
2. Check Your Network
Because Jane is a web-based application, she requires a healthy connection to the internet.
Smaller clinics or solo practitioners with less than 5 staff, we recommend at least 25 Mbps download speed and at least 5 Mbps upload.
Larger Clinics with more than 5 staff should have at least 50 Mbps download speed and at least 12 Mbps upload.
We recommend running a Speed Test on your device to see if your network connection is strong enough to support Jane. If you find that your connection is not strong enough, you’ll want to reach out to your internet provider for assistance.
3. Clear Your Browser’s Cache
Sometimes, clearing your browser cache can help! It’s a bit like spring cleaning for your browser or emptying the trash can in a way.
Give this a try and reach out if things still aren’t working after that.

4. Check for Software Updates for your Browser and Device
Periodically the browser and operating software on your device will require a little upgrade.
Check out this guide if you use a PC and Windows: Microsoft Update

5. Power Down and Restart Your Device
If you have installed an update onto your device, you will likely need to reboot. However, this is generally just a good habit to get into on a daily basis. Powering down will intervene on any processes that may be running in the background and eating up your memory. When you restart your device you will be more likely to be starting from a clean slate and should see all your programs running a bit faster, not to mention the cost savings you’ll get for using less electricity. ;)
6. Remove your homepage button and add it back on
If you’re still experiencing issues accessing Jane from the button created on your homepage for your phone, you will want to try deleting the shortcut and recreating it.
To do this, you will want to
Touch and hold your finger on the app icon until you enter edit mode (the icons begin to jiggle). Tap the Delete button (looks like an X) at the top left of the app icon. Tap Delete to confirm the removal. Click the Home button to exit edit mode. Once you have done that, we can try re-adding the icon back to your home screen: Using Safari or Chrome, sign into Jane using your URL Click on the Share button (looks like a box with an arrow) to add the link to your homescreen.
