Physicians used to line up four deep to view images on a single nurse workstation. Now they can go to any available Dell Wyse device, zoom in on their images and get a sharp picture.

ChallengeRaritan Bay Medical Center staff used desktop and laptop computers and thin client devices to access applications. The systems had frequent issues, and few could render PACS images clearly. Physicians had to wait in line to use the PACS-capable machines.
SolutionThe organization deployed 300 Dell™ Wyse thin client devices that connect to applications via a Citrix® XenApp™-based platform. Resolution of PACS images is sharp on all 300 of the new systems.
Benefits• Eliminated queues of physicians waiting to use imaging software
• 500 hours/year reclaimed for IT staff
• 84 percent fewer help desk tickets
• $50,000/year savings on hardware purchases
