Yesterday, Wyse announced the integration of Imprivata OneSign® Virtual Desktop Access with their Xenith zero client for Citrix XenDesktop and ThinOS based thin clients.. This means that hospitals that are deploying XenDesktop or ThinOS will be able to get the same No Click Access that is currently available for VMware View zero clients.

Similarly to Teradici, Wyse have partnered with Imprivata through the Imprivata Developer Program and have used the ProveID API to build authentication straight into the client firmware along with the Citrix HDX protocol. Through this integration care providers can roam their XenDesktop sessions with just the tap of a card to a card reader connected to the zero client or Wyse ThinOS thin client.

The benefits of desktop roaming within healthcare are clear. Removing the clicks when combined with  OneSign streamlines clinical workflows, removing the PHI from the endpoint increases information security and enabling access from a range of devices increases flexibility. Now hospitals that are using XenDesktop or VMware View can add the final piece of the value puzzle by including reduced management costs as a result of zero and ThinOS based clients.

Wyse have also posted a great video showing how Daughters of Charity Health System have implemented Imprivata Virtual Desktop Access, Wyse P20 Clients and VMware View at O’Connor Hospital in San Jose, CA.
