Cloud Client-Computing Streamlines Healthcare Infrastructures

While most people don’t consider how much faster they can spell-check when considering a hardware refresh, IT professionals know that even millisecond improvements in everyday tasks can add up over time. That’s why when it comes to evaluating Thin client endpoints and new data center solutions, the ability to accelerate data entry, streamline user access, and enable greater mobility can provide dramatic results, especially across an entire enterprise footprint. 

In Addressing Changes in the Healthcare IT Legislative and Regulatory Environment, we examine how Wyse thin clients and Dell cloud client-computing solutions can enhance healthcare environments by accelerating several time-intensive functions often taken for granted. We also address how could client-computing solutions accelerate data input and access while maintaining compliance regulations. Most importantly, we discuss how the ability to streamline the storage, retrieval, and analysis has a positive impact on medical care by cutting patient wait times and allowing doctors to spend more time making diagnoses.

According to Federal statistics from 2015, the average wait time for patients visiting emergency rooms in the U.S. was 138 minutes, long enough to watch Alfred Hitchcock’s North By Northwest. As a result, some emergency rooms in have recognized that efficiency is a tangible, monetizable advantage. Those that pride themselves on speed have taken to advertising such as St. Francis Healthcare in Wilmington, Delaware which posts its 30-minute wait time on billboards along I-95 and St. David’s Heart Hospital of Austin which posts its four-minute wait time on its Web site.

In addition to greater security and accelerated intake, the benefits of adopting a cloud client-computing architecture include:

Greater reliability – Thin clients do not have moving parts and require no local OS to be loaded on the machine. Since they stream their OS and user data from centralized servers, users cannot customize a thin client with unapproved software which could disrupt its functionality and lead to downtime.

Reduced operational costs – On average, traditional PCs can cost more than twice as much as a thin client. This is because PCs typically incur significant annual maintenance costs associated with software maintenance and upgrades, hard drive failure, and troubleshooting.
