Citrix is going all out to help Healthcare providers transition to organization-wide Electronic Health Records (EHR) systems that enable physicians, nurses and other authorized users share data and streamline processes.  EHR  technology is improving the quality, safety, and efficiency of patient care and keeping our personal health information private and secure. Desktop virtualization is helping healthcare leaders across the globe streamline EHR implementation and administration, enhance patient safety, reduce costs, and improve clinician productivity.

We just made it even faster for clinicians to authenticate to new or active Citrix desktop sessions with new Receiver programming interfaces.   Called Fast Connect, this simple feature reduces connection time to seconds, where seconds matter a whole lot.  We want every clinician to have the best possible experience, as they move from one device to another, from one patient bedside to the next and from one building on the campus to another.

Towards that end, we are working closely with EHR system leaders like Cerner and single sign-on/access management leaders like Imprivata to rapidly assimilate this improvement into their software.

Imprivata® is our first Citrix Ready partner to embrace Fast Connect with their best in class product. Imprivata is the #1 independent single sign-on (SSO) and access management provider for healthcare and other regulated industries.  Their OneSign product delivers fast and secure access to EHR systems, significantly reducing the amount of time clinicians spend logging in and out of systems, allowing more time for patient care.

Literally patient data at the touch of a finger or the tap of a badge!
