Every organization is concerned about productivity. Productivity is not just about doing things fast; it’s about having reliable access to the tools and information you need to do things effectively.

Productivity drives business performance, improves customer experience, and keeps employees engaged. Nowhere is productivity more critical than in healthcare. In fact, when it comes to delivering patient care, productivity can truly be a matter of life and death.

It’s not surprising that hospitals, clinics, and other healthcare facilities have made embracing technology to modernize every aspect of patient care – from electronic medical records to diagnostics – a top priority. However, many healthcare organizations still struggle with antiquated patient kiosks, unreliable apps, bandwidth constraints, and limited budgets to keep up with regulatory requirements and the pace of technological change. This is consistent with research that shows the proliferation of apps, delivery models, devices, and new work style requirements have negatively impacted productivity. This means physicians, nurses, and clinicians are spending more time grappling with technology than engaging and providing care to patients.

Citrix believes that technology should fuel productivity, not hinder it. We are committed to providing virtualization, networking, and content collaboration solutions that ensure reliable application delivery, information security, and simplified IT management. That’s why the top 10 largest healthcare organizations in the United States use Citrix solutions.

On the heels of last week’s National Health IT Week, I’m excited to spotlight Partners HealthCare as the next customer success story in the Citrix 100 Days of Customers video series. A leading non-profit hospital and physicians network based in Boston, Partners HealthCare is leveraging Citrix to overcome the complexities of legacy technology and modern app sprawl to simplify access to secure electronic health records, streamline clinical workflows, secure sensitive patient data, and embrace lower-cost thin-client hardware and cloud-based solutions.

But don’t take my word for it. Watch Partners HealthCare Corporate Manager Herb Harrison share their story.
