A Case Study: Clinical Workflow Efficiencies from Desktop Virtualization

Are you going to HIMSS next week?  If so, I wanted to share the following with you. A while back I sat down with our Business Development Manager, Amar Rajasekhar, of Cisco’s Strategic Partner Organization – we spent some time reviewing the findings of  his study on Metro Health – a regional healthcare provider based out of Grand Rapids Michigan.  He shared some truly impressive findings, that go beyond the usual IT CAPEX/OPEX discussion, exploring the dramatic productivity / workflow efficiencies gained from desktop virtualization, resulting in a very compelling ROI. 

In partnership with Cisco, VMware and NetApp, Metro Health is tapping into desktop virtualization to deliver 3 critical applications to its physicians and nurses: i) Clinical Imaging – Referential Viewing, ii) Follow-me desktops, and iii) Ubiquitous Dictation.  If you’re not convinced of the ROI of desktop virtualization for healthcare, this session might have you looking at it in a new light…

We’ll talk more about the healthcare applications for desktop virtualization in a later post, but in the meantime if you’re going to HIMSS, here’s when/where you can catch Amar’s session:

1.) VMware Theater (Booth 4079), Monday 21st, 4:30pm

2.) Cisco Theater (Booth 2051), Wednesday 23rd, 3:15pm

If you attend, let me know what you thought!
