Healthcare IT solutions from Citrix empower healthcare mobility
Citrix is the trusted solution partner of 90% of the largest healthcare providers, all of the US News & World report top hospitals and the top health information technology vendors. Millions of caregivers and staff rely on healthcare IT solutions from Citrix to enable healthcare mobility and deliver seamless, secure, instant access to patient information as they roam across facilities, devices and networks. With Citrix, healthcare providers can focus on what matters most – patients and their families.
Today, every healthcare IT leader is expected to do more with less. Your teams want to forge ahead with transformative, clinician-supported technology initiatives, but most of your budget, time and personnel get spent implementing, updating and supporting core systems. Citrix solutions enable healthcare IT leaders to centralize and streamline IT operations and infrastructure to reduce overhead and gain the efficiency needed to invest in initiatives that will transform the business of healthcare.
Empower physicians and nurses with what they need to improve patient care, while addressing critical mandates like Computerized Physician Order Entry (CPOE), Meaningful Use and other global reforms that emerge. Citrix healthcare mobility solutions empower physicians and nurses to instantly access clinical systems, data and care coordination tools – from any workstation or their device of choice. By enabling quick and seamless access to PHI from any device without compromising security, you make it simpler for clinicians to use EMRs, clinical decision support tools and other resources that help your organization meet government mandates.
As reimbursement structures change, inpatient volume declines and regulations evolve towards value-based care, business leaders must be prepared. Citrix Healthcare Solutions enable your IT team to centrally deliver robust clinical and business systems to any facility, device or person – in a matter of days rather than weeks or months. This accelerates the time-to-value for new ventures, like acquiring a new hospital or building a new outpatient facility, without increasing IT overhead or risking security. Citrix healthcare solutions also help you better train, engage and retain distributed caregivers and staff at a time when you can’t afford to lose your best people.
Keeping PHI safe and secure is a big task as the number of HIPAA data breaches continues to rise. Doctors, nurses, administrative staff and executives require rapid, mobile access to information as they move across locations and devices, but it can’t put PHI and sensitive data at risk. Citrix Healthcare IT solutions empower you to address key security and compliance priorities by ensuring the right level of secure access for every individual and situation. Our secure-by-design healthcare mobility solutions can simplify security, protect intellectual property, ensure data privacy and meet HIPAA and PCI-DSS compliance mandates without sacrificing workforce productivity or satisfaction.
A clinical mobile workspace is an always on, always connected, personalized working environment that clinicians and staff can take with them as they roam across devices, facilities and networks.
The Citrix Mobile Workspace delivers this experience by securely uniting clinical and non-clinical Windows, web and mobile applications, desktops, files, and services into a single workspace that’s tailored to a person’s role or medical specialty.
Physicians, nurses, administrative staff and executives each have a single, instant point of access into every resource they require to deliver the best patient outcomes and experiences.
