  • VDI environments aim to address mobile devices, remote workers

    As health systems grapple with a host of new problems -- among them complications from HIPAA compliance regulations -- providers are actively seeking solutions to the myriad issues confronting hospitals' technology infrastructure. And with less-centralized medical staffs, remote health monitoring and a surge in personal technology devices -- tablets, thin clients and virtual desktops -- there are pressing concerns for many. After a recent surge in adoption, it would seem many see virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) environments as the answer healthcare IT professionals are looking for.

    In this handbook, experts provide readers with firsthand accounts on implementing VDI environments that focus on how the move positively affects healthcare IT environments. Also, readers can look forward to a special case study detailing one hospital's efforts to effectively and efficiently deal with printing remotely over a virtualized network -- even with issues such as HIPAA compliance and the 21st-century healthcare worker's proclivity for wireless devices.
