Today’s healthcare organizations face many unique challenges as they race to meet meaningful use criteria and other healthcare reforms. Additionally, preparing an outdated IT infrastructure to support the implementation of a new Electronic Health Record (EHR) system and the latest user devices are proving to be a monumental task for many healthcare organizations. By focusing on the needs of the user directly, rather than a desktop or device, User Environment Management (UEM) provides healthcare IT multiple solutions to meet today’s challenges as well as opportunities to improve patient care and increase operational efficiency.
What is UEM?
UEM ushers in a new era for healthcare IT, by decoupling users from devices, enabling users to work with whichever devices and applications will maximize their productivity, and fundamentally changing the economics of IT. Isolating user data enables IT to precisely administer users by device, location, or application. The user experience remains secure, predictable, and personalized, with bullet-proof reliability. IT can give users complete freedom of choice to use whichever devices suit them, and deploy a user-specific desktop to any device in any location at any time.
Spadafy is proud to partner with AppSense to deliver UEM and location based/rules based computing to help our customers decouple user experience from their underlying virtual or traditional PC computing environment.
Key Benefits of UEM
Faster clinician log-on times for critical systems
Improved workspace and application responsiveness
Increased user density for server-hosted workspaces and applications
Dynamic workspace configuration based on clinician location and context
Granular security and policy controls to support compliance
Better Clinician User Experience,
Better Patient Care.
In a recent study conducted by HealthData Management, 4 out 5 healthcare IT leaders reported that their clinicians are not very satisfied with their computing environment. Respondents reported following key reasons for clinician dissatisfaction:
- Excessive time spent logging onto desktops and applications.
- Slow application launch/response times.
- Inconsistent experience across desktop and mobile devices.
At Spadafy we’ve proven that through proper analysis and engineering of best of breed solutions we can solve the healthcare user experience issue and allow providers to concentrate more on what matters most – Patients.
Project Profile: Parkview Medical Center VDI Implementation
As a 350 bed hospital based in Pueblo, CO, Parkview is Southeast Colorado’s only certified Level II Trauma Center, as well the region’s first certified Stroke Center. Parkview is a leader in cardiac, women’s, emergency and neurological as well as behavioral health programs.
In the fall of 2016, Parkview commissioned Spadafy to help solidify their clinical desktop strategy including solution selection and implementation planning. Once hardware was onsite, Parkview & Spadafy initiated a very successful pilot in less than a month. User feedback to the project has been overwhelmingly positive.
Project Profile: VVMC VDI Implementation
Located at the base of the largest ski resort in America, Vail Valley Medical Center is the world’s most advanced mountain hospital, providing Olympic-quality sports medicine, leading evidence-based research, modern cancer care and extensive cardiology capabilities – all high-quality services with exceptional outcomes.
In the fall of 2015, VVMC partnered with Spadafy to deliver a flexible, high performance clinical desktop to their doctors and nurses. With less than 2 months from order to implementation, Spadafy & the VVMC team were able to provide a world class desktop just in time for ski season opening.
