WellSpan partners with Citrix to transform healthcare
Integrated health system leverages digital solutions to simplify and speed access to applications and data, freeing doctors and clinicians to focus on patient care
FORT LAUDERDALE, FL – February 12, 2019 – When it comes to healthcare, time is of the essence. That’s why, leveraging solutions from Citrix Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:CTXS), WellSpan Health has created an intelligent digital workspace through which more than 1,500 doctors and advanced clinicians across eight hospitals can access the applications and information they need to do their jobs – anywhere, anytime, in a simple, secure and reliable way.
“At WellSpan, we realize that time is precious and every second counts,” said Mick Murphy, Vice President and Chief Technology Officer, WellSpan Health. “That’s why we are committed to providing our doctors and clinicians with innovative solutions that enable them to make intelligent decisions in real-time and deliver optimal outcomes for the patients they serve.”
Giving Time Back
On any given day, the average employee spends more than 20% of their time searching for information and 25 percent more completing administrative tasks. For doctors and clinicians, that’s time not spent with patients. That’s why WellSpan has implemented digital workspace solutions from Citrix, said Murphy.
Using Citrix™ Virtual Apps and Desktops, WellSpan provides single-sign-on access to all the apps (SaaS, Web, Mobile, Virtual) and content its doctors and clinicians need in one, unified experience. So doctors and clinicians now have access to their clinical applications at their fingertips. And they can get at them in a matter of seconds.
Transforming Healthcare Delivery
Since putting Citrix in place, WellSpan has seen its log in times drop from more than half a minute to less than four seconds. “That’s more time for patient care,” Murphy said.
