Hospitals are busy places, and clinicians are busy people. Healthcare IT administrators are also overworked, with far too much on their plates. Much of that “busy-ness” revolves around the clinical workstation, where the real work in a healthcare environment gets done.
People become healthcare workers to heal patients. That has been the case for hundreds of years. But now that dynamic is changing. Doctors and nurses still heal patients, of course. But attending to patients’ needs can no longer be their sole focus. Modern healthcare workers, unfortunately, must attend to administrative tasks.
Healthcare organizations are navigating a time of unprecedented change. Soaring costs, declining revenues and ever-expanding government mandates have impacted healthcare organizations across the globe. Added to the mix has been a fierce and accelerating onslaught of cybercrime activity. These dynamics have combined to place extraordinary pressures on the IT staff in healthcare organizations.
Perhaps no workplace environment is more stressful than healthcare. At its most basic level, healthcare revolves around a never-ending cycle of critical emergencies. Dealing with this most elemental form of stress is just a part of many clinicians’ lives. While not every clinician must cope with such extremes on a daily basis, all healthcare professionals must face another stark reality: Ongoing changes in the healthcare industry place increasing pressure on workers to accomplish more in less time.
Paperwork is the bane of healthcare professionals everywhere. While most professions are burdened with their share of administrative chores, it is likely that no other industry is as overwhelmed with paperwork as healthcare.
Financial organizations exist to serve their customers. Whether professionals are trading stocks or underwriting loans, they depend on their company’s computing infrastructure for reliable access to real-time data in order to meet their clients’ needs.
For decades, financial institutions have relied on mission-critical applications and data that reside on every type of host platform — AS/400, UNIX, Linux, Unisys, HP, and especially mainframe. These systems support credit card payment processing, stock trades, insurance claims, and many other fintech services.
In this environment of elevated risk, many financial institutions are turning to data centralization as a primary defense. This paper discusses how thin/zero clients by 10ZiG can work in symbiosis with Citrix VDI in providing a secure, centralized solution that optimizes productivity and ensures a positive user experience.
Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) has evolved significantly in recent years, achieving unprecedented levels of mobility, capability, versatility and security. VDI has also become very popular in educational environments. Educational institutions value VDI for the cost-savings potential, but also for the rich user experience that VDI enables for teachers and students.
