Cerner Customers Reach New Levels Of Scalability And Cost Efficiency With Citrix and Nutanix

Drives Reduced Costs, Increased Security In Healthcare By Virtualizing Clinical Applications with Citrix XenDesktop and Nutanix Enterprise Cloud

Healthcare IT organizations are tasked with supporting enhanced clinical workflows and have trouble finding the right secure data storage and delivery options for their business. Security, scalability and cost efficiency are top of mind when selecting the right solution. As consumers and employees demand more streamlined, secure access to healthcare information, the industry is moving away from being fragmented with outdated data delivery and access models towards consolidation of organizations, technology and resources to offer a better patient and practitioner experience and meet compliance regulations. Hospitals globally are looking for and investing in solutions that will improve patient care, streamline workflows and processes for hospital staff and reduce cost and complexity for IT.

To improve the secure delivery and storage of applications and data, while offering the best possible user experience, Cerner, the largest healthcare IT company globally, has certified a joint solution that leverages Citrix XenDesktop with Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform. With this joint solution, Cerner customers are now able to virtualize their desktops and applications to give clinicians secure access to patient and hospital information from anywhere, using any device, cloud, hypervisor or network. Built on a web-scale architecture, Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform combined with XenDesktop provides a complete, fully-supported solution for application and desktop virtualization. In addition, Citrix and Nutanix are working together to deliver the highest quality user experience for clinicians.
According to the recent Forrester Global Business Technographics Survey, 2016, healthcare organizations are increasingly adopting application virtualization. In 2016, twenty-six percent of healthcare organizations have adopted application virtualization, up from just eight percent in 2012. This joint offering will allow healthcare organizations to scale up their virtual desktops and applications as needed. Whether it be for new hires, working with third party contractors, or enabling mergers or acquisitions, the Citrix/Nutanix solution provides the simplicity of out-of-the-box server virtualization with the security of desktop virtualization, on-demand disaster recovery capabilities, and lower operational and equipment costs.

At Cerner, we’re committed to delivering world-class experiences for our clients. Using Citrix app and desktop virtualization technologies paired with Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform, enables secure desktops across the care continuum. This offering in conjunction with Cerner’s Instant Access solution optimizes the workflow experience reducing the time it takes to get to the point of productivity while ensuring patient privacy, organization security and compliance, reducing costs and the traditional complexity to implement.
