A report examining the well-known Utah Department of Health data breach found an increasing correlation between people whose data has been breached and victims of fraud -- which is where financial institutions might be able to play a more proactive role.
A new era in healthcare IT has arrived! Even when physicians can’t physically be there, new advances in technology allow them to always “virtually” be on the scene to save a life - whether it’s in the middle of the night or on their day off. In this short video, you’ll watch how a cardiologist prescribes a patient the medicine he needs stat at 2 a.m. You’ll see how easily you can access clinical desktops from anywhere and access real-time info about patients as they’re getting wheeled into the ER. In addition, the video will show you how to go mobile instantly with desktops that follow users, review real-time ER caseloads and enable HD face-to-face telemedicine. Also, watch how this doctor uses voice recognition to update patient records and secure patient health information (PHI) on devices. Don’t you love living in the future?
This IDC Health Insights white paper identifies the key benefits from desktop virtualization in the clinical environment and presents case studies from three hospitals with detailed interviews, adopting desktop virtualization in the clinical environment.

The HITECH Act of 2009 accelerated the adoption and deployment of EHR/EMR systems. However, along with the many benefits, this trend also introduces greater risk of privacy and security breaches. The emerging rise of cloud-based healthcare services similarly brings many benefits but reduces visibility and control over sensitive data. Addressing these challenges requires continuous monitoring across data, systems, and applications in modern healthcare networks.
Transformative changes such as healthcare reform mandates, advanced stages of meaningful use criteria and conversion from ICD-9 to ICD-10 code sets require healthcare providers’ IT assets to be flexible, scalable and interoperable in order to respond. Learn how user virtualization provides the ability to react quickly while improving user experience and operational efficiency.
Records of events taking place in your environment are being logged right now into event logs and Syslog files across your servers, workstations and networking devices. This log data needs to be collected, stored, analyzed and monitored to meet and report on regulatory compliance standards such as FISMA or HIPAA.
The face of healthcare is transforming at a blistering pace. Simply staying abreast of the changes is a daunting task leaving little time for the innovation necessary to stay competitive in the marketplace. The future of the medical infrastructure lies in the power of IT convergence. The converged medical infrastructure integrates servers, storage, networking, management software, services, power and cooling into one flexible, modular, standards-based platform to give you the power to handle any workload, anywhere, anytime.
