Dell Dives into mHealth with Mobile Clinical Computing Solution

Mobile Clinical Computing (MCC) for Meditech is based on a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) that is designed for fast, flexible deployment of virtual desktops in hospitals and their extended communities. The design includes VMware vSphere(TM) and VMware View(TM) as well as servers, optimized storage, networking, and security in a reference architecture that can be tailored to meet customer needs.

From hardware to hospitals, tech juggernaut Dell is diving into the mobile health space with a new venture few had anticipated.

Dell is launching a Mobile Clinical Computing (MCC) solution for hospitals and health care organizations that use the Meditech Health Care Information System.

The solution, says Dell, will enable “a simplification and automation of IT operations.”

By delivering this technology solution for Meditech users – and its network of better than 2,300 hospitals, ambulatory care centers, physicians’ offices, and countless medical facilities – the MCC program represents Dell’s latest attempt, as Information Week reports, to explore new ways to offer technology to the healthcare sector.

“One of the top pain points for virtually every healthcare CIO involves managing clinical and administrative desktops,” says Peter Stone, vice president and general manager of the Meditech Solutions Group within Dell Services.

“PC client issues strain otherwise carefully-deployed healthcare enterprise applications and can hinder adoption of advanced clinical software,” Stone says. “Deploying secure virtual desktops can resolve many of these challenges by utilizing VMware View(TM) to create a desktop and application design that simplifies and automates IT operations, while also reducing the risk of security breaches that plague local storage.”

Virtualization Partnerships

An increasing number of healthcare IT organizations are looking to deploy VMware View and zero clients to secure their data and reduce their desktop management headaches. Imprivata and Teradici announced today that they are working together as part of a strategic partnership to provide integration and interoperability of PC-over-IP® (PCoIP®) zero client devices with Imprivata OneSign® authentication and single sign-on software.

In response, Imprivata has introduced OneSign AnywhereTM, designed specifically to enable single sign-on and authentication to EMR and other healthcare applications from any location and any device. Through OneSign Anywhere, Imprivata is providing clinicians anywhere, anytime access to critical patient information, thereby enabling timely patient care decisions.
