I am trying to estimate initial sizing for an IS-H Solution.
For disk space requirements, Note 878808 says:
"(1) For a medium hospital (~ 700 beds) we estimate approx. 2-3 GB/year."
I can't understand if this means 2-3 GB/year per bed? per patient? per case?
Will appreciate any help.

Please, take this as rule of thumb. From my point of view, the sizing note is a little bit out to date.
What I ussualy do as rule of thumb, is to match the IS-H Cases as Sales Orders, and Services as Sales ordes line items.
So, every movement is an encounter with the patient.
Another rule, 1 IS-H user = 1 SD user
This is only valid for ISH! for i.s.h.med use the other note.
One hospital with outpatient and inpatient activity could have, for example, 50.000 cases per month with 20 services each. So, in quick sizer you could enter 50.000 Sales Orders per months, with an average of 20 Line Items (your customer could have that info)
In some countries, the patient pays a part of the bill and the insurance company the other part, so you could enter 100.000 invoices per month (20 line items avg). If you have active CO, FI, CO-PA, you could determine also the quantities.
I hope this info helps.
With best regards
