RAMSEY, N.J., Nov. 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- In order to provide hospitals with a flexible and effective way to access and manage data, healthcare IT companies, Comport, discusses the benefits of VDI in the healthcare industry.
Healthcare facilities are fast-paced environments, and medical personnel need easy access to patient information in order to effectively provide treatment. Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) provides the perfect balance of flexibility and security to keep records safe while enabling doctors, specialists, and nurses to better do their jobs.
Listed below are just a few of the reasons why VDI is a viable option to increase efficiency and improve patient outcomes in the healthcare environment.
Easy Sharing Of Records. By avoiding tying electronic health records to a physical computer, it becomes far easier for medical personnel to share patient information and provide the best possible treatment. From the beginning of treatment until the end, there are often multiple professionals that will be providing care, and the ability to easily transfer information through a VDI is a major benefit to any healthcare environment.
Increased Security Through Parameters. By keeping patient information, medical data, and healthcare files on a virtual desktop, it is easy for an IT team to provide appropriate permissions to providers who need access to the information, while keeping the files private from the rest of the organization. With how important the protection of private health information is, this increased security can protect a hospital from costly legal action in the event of a data breach.
Accessible Data. Providing timely treatment for patients is very important, and a VDI allows healthcare professionals to access patient or company files from any laptop, tablet, or device from anywhere in the medical center. This flexibility ensures that pertinent information is never far off hand, and increases efficiency as employees are no longer locked to specific terminals.
BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) A properly implemented VDI can even be designed to allow medical personnel to access records and hospital files on their own devices. Training healthcare workers to use new technology can be expensive and time consuming, so the ability to offer access to pertinent information on a device that they are already familiar with cuts down on training costs and reduces inefficiencies related to unfamiliarity. A BYOD policy also offers the potential to access information while off-site, which can be incredibly useful for following up with patient care after hours.
