Citrix Summit is a great place to learn about industry innovation.

In the healthcare arena, Citrix technology has enabled many hospital systems in the U.S. to deliver better patient care through mobility strategies designed to make clinicians more effective and efficient.

Hartford Connecticut’s 5000-employee Saint Francis Hospital & Medical Center, the largest independent Catholic healthcare provider in New England, is a prime example. The healthcare system’s story is highlighted in panel session SUM190 entitled “Grow XenDesktop and XenApp sales in Healthcare with Intel.” The session takes place on January 12, 2016 from 11:30AM – 12:15PM in Premiere 312 and features a panel of experts including Damien McKinney, virtualization architect, St. Francis Hospital. You won’t want to miss it!

Like the more than three million clinicians across the United States who rely on Citrix solutions for mobile applications and data each day, the Saint Francis Hospital user base of physicians, clinicians, healthcare professionals and administrators now has any time, anywhere, any device access to the healthcare and business apps. The hospital has deployed the Epic EMR Suite by leveraging Citrix XenApp, XenDesktop and XenMobile running on an HP/Intel infrastructure. The solution can be accessed either via a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) or as an application.

In this panel session, you will learn how Citrix solutions for healthcare enable organizations such as Saint Francis to be nimble, tailoring technology to meet ever-changing requirements. By hosting XenApp, XenDesktop or XenMobile on Intel® powered servers, Saint Francis maintains an extremely dense infrastructure. This translates into the kind of fault-tolerant and performance-driven IT environment healthcare providers require. Citrix and Intel meet and exceed healthcare providers’ expectations with business continuity and fast and secure access.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How the combination of Citrix Provisioning Services and Intel processing power provides scalability on demand
  • How Citrix and Intel are working together to help organizations meet and exceed the technology demands of the healthcare industry
  • Where and how to engage your customers to win with Intel and Citrix.

Technology is one area in which St Francis has been at the forefront of innovation for quite some time. In fact, the institution recently was named one of the nation’s “Most Wired.”  The hospital also routinely amasses annual awards in a host of clinical specialties. The Year 2015 was no different, with St. Francis garnering awards for achievement in cardiac care, knee replacements, COPD, heart failure care, and clinical excellence. St. Francis also was recognized with accolades for diversity, hospital safety and more.

Founded in 1897, this regional teaching and referral hospital offers 617 beds. Its services span the continuum of patient needs including preventive, primary and specialty care as well as high acuity tertiary care and post-acute care. Many of these services are provided through partnerships, affiliations and relationships developed with other exceptional providers.
