Desktop virtualization

Unlock the potential of desktop virtualization in healthcare

As healthcare continues its industry-wide transition from paper-based to electronic records, a successful end-user computing strategy – including desktop virtualization – gives care providers fast access to clinical applications and patient information at the point of care, which can significantly increase workflow efficiency and improve the patient experience.

The healthcare industry is rapidly increasing its adoption of virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) as way to enable faster, more convenient access to patient information. However, the adoption and implementation of VDI can be difficult for many healthcare organizations to navigate.

Experienced healthcare IT professionals share how they implemented VDI, the results of those implementations, and future trends that they’re keeping their eye on in the Imprivata 6th annual VDI report, Healthcare organizations tell all: desktop virtualization adoption trends, explained.
