Healthcare IT solutions

Citrix solutions for health IT enable digital transformation by providing clinicians with instant access to patient information as they roam across facilities, devices, and networks. In addition, patience privacy is of the utmost importance within the industry which requires the highest level of security.

There are several different workspace requirements within the industry. From highly specialized imaging and diagnostic applications to general administration workspace requirements.

Citrix Hybrid Cloud solutions offer migration to the cloud at scale – depending on the healthcare facilities requirements and makes use of intelligent workspace solutions.

Citrix DaaS has been designed to facilitate all requirements within a healthcare organization. Citrix DaaS can be tailored to meet the need for precision healthcare information. For example, the way radiology services are provided, to enable hospitals and trusts to pool and share talent, knowledge and resources — not only within their local vicinity, but across a global network. The solution cannot rely solely on costly single-use, single-user radiology workstations. And they need a solution that ensures strict adherence to data security and healthcare regulations, allowing access to patient data without that data leaving the healthcare provider’s infrastructure.

Citrix solution is the deployment of Windows-based desktop as a service (DaaS) workload. These virtual desktops leverage Citrix HDX (high-definition experience) technology with NVIDIA powered servers to deliver diagnostic-quality images in a “like-local” experience to radiologists and radiographers from anywhere.

The above example shows how Citrix intelligent workspace solutions can assist the healthcare industry to changes in the way people access their resources, using technologies such as Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR), Internet of Things (IoT) and Machine Learning (ML)

However, whether it is AR to assist patients traversing through healthcare facilities, or IoT devices to capture real-time clinical data, the information gathered is delivering improved patient outcomes, it’s also creating complexity for security teams.

In addition, ensuring that HIPAA and HITECH compliance meet audit requirements by enforcing policies that not only grant access to Protected Health Information (PHI) based on the context of the user, but also, that create an audit trail.

Citrix security solutions include Zero Trust Network Access and NetScaler, which not only enhances infrastructure optimization, but adds an additional layer of security. Also implementing Citrix analytics for security will offer the healthcare industry the highest level of security and enable the organization to detect, protect and prevent cyber breaches in real time.

Finally, Citrix solutions for the industry include built-in tools for monitoring, logging and reporting thereby meeting the requirements of both the HIPAA and HITECH requirements.

As discussed, looking at the "future of health", digitization will play a pivotal role. Smart care, the intelligent use of robotics and precision medicine, will improve patient outcomes, which will greatly reduce costs not only for the healthcare industry as a whole, but also patients.

Care anywhere via any location and device will bring health care services directly into the into the homes through virtual care initiatives. In addition, empowered care through living services will enable people to take more responsibility for their health.

Intelligent Health Enterprises, data driven solutions and efficient use of application deployment will enable healthcare practitioners a great level of efficiency and effectiveness via real time monitoring of patient care, diagnostics and accurately offer recommendations before the patient steps foot into a healthcare facility.

Therefore, in developing a digital transformation strategy OAS prioritizes high-definition access to patient's records, prioritizes cybersecurity - recognizing the right to patient privacy. In addition, accommodating the statutory regulations, greatly reducing costs, day to day administration automation, accessibility to information from anywhere and most importantly providing a highly efficient degree of user experience, which is crucial to the success of the transformation process.
