This is a good article describing the basics of Share Point services. Share Point services tends to be used generically sometimes, when in fact there are many flavors of Share Point. This article describes a server/client installation, but there are also "web hosted" services available as well. Small Business Server 2003 and Windows 2003 Server include the "basic" portal features and it can grow from there with a full Share Point Server from Microsoft. Share Point is a valuable resource, but first do some homework and read up a bit to determine which flavor and whether local or web hosted will be the best solution for your practice. In short, an "intranet" is like a fenced-off part of the Internet that gives only a limited group access to its information.
