Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center is an acute care hospital located in Hartford, Connecticut. Saint Francis has grown into New England's largest Catholic hospital, with 617 beds and major clinical concentrations in oncology, cardiology, orthopedics, rehabilitation, and women and infants services. Using multiple Citrix solutions, the hospital was able to deploy a new EMR system across thousands of workstations and mobile devices, helping to enable anytime, anywhere access to EMR data as part of a larger BYOD initiative.
We had looked at competitive solutions in the past, but the last thing we wanted was to switch virtualization platforms in the middle of an EMR upgrade. And after working with Citrix for so long, we had a lot of confidence in the product and the team supporting it.

In top-tier law firms, profitability rises and customer satisfaction soars when attorneys spend more time helping clients. Yet serving clients around the world, juggling schedules and documents, and working in remote locations often makes it harder for lawyers to be as productive as possible. And—no surprise—lower productivity translates into fewer billable hours. That’s why one leading U.S. law firm realized it needed a new technology to deliver an in-office experience, even for lawyers working on the road.
People were worried that we would adopt virtual desktops and essentially take their desktop away. With XenDesktop with Remote PC Access, they still have a personalized work environment but they also get the device flexibility and ability to work offline. It’s the best of all worlds.
