Citrix Solutions Transform the Workplace for Bolton NHS Foundation Trust
Digital Transformation Gives Clinicians Flexibility to Work Anywhere
Bolton NHS Foundation Trust has adopted Citrix technology to reduce costs and improve patient care by delivering critical diagnoses more quickly – as well as allow clinicians and support staff to access data and applications from anywhere. Providing services at about 30 locations in the Bolton, UK area, the trust’s clinicians tend to work around the clock from a variety of locations, including patients’ homes, the hospital and out in the community. As the trust didn’t have a mobility solution, staff were not able to access hospital data when working in community clinics or if working remotely. If specialists were not available on site, critical diagnoses and patient care decisions were often delayed.
To address this need, Bolton NHS Trust adopted Citrix solutions for its digital transformation. Within the hospital, clinicians are now able to retrieve their information where they left off using any thin-client terminal on premises. With access to the same desktop they use in the hospital now on a personal PC, tablet or smartphone, clinicians also improved services in the community with clinics in local healthcare centers. In addition to increased mobility, Citrix has increased productivity as log-on times have been reduced to just two to three seconds. With these changes, Bolton NHS Trust exemplifies how Citrix is meeting the needs of the future of work by delivering the industry’s most comprehensive and integrated solutions.
