Value for Health IT and Improved Productivity for Employees
The healthcare industry is in the midst of a transformative change. Emerging reform initiatives that focus on improving the overall health of patient populations tie provider reimbursements to measurable quality metrics rather than traditional fee-for-service. Regulations such as HITECH are intended to improve the quality of care while reducing cost by accelerating the adoption of Health- IT, such as electronic health records (EHRs). However, adoption alone is not sufficient. It is the intelligent application of Health-IT across the care continuum that will lead to success in this new environment. Meaningful, collaborative exchange of health information between patients, primary care physicians, specialists, hospitals, long-term care facilities, and family members is required to enable improved accuracy and timely decisions at the point of care.

Under significant pressure to bring the spiraling cost of care under control, IT departments are being asked to do more with less. Having realized significant benefits with server virtualization in the data center, many organizations are now turning to desktop virtualization to enable centralized management and security of applications and support of new devices such as smart phones and tablets. However, traditional desktop virtualization solutions require increased data center infrastructure and do not always provide an acceptable user experience. As new enabling technologies emerge for client compute delivery, IT must determine the optimal enterprise client computing strategy—deciding which combination of client platforms and service delivery models will best meet the needs of employees and the IT organization, now and into the future.
