Dell Mobile Clinical Computing improves patient safety in Healthcare

Today’s dynamic healthcare environment relies heavily on the latest technology to increase the speed and accuracy of patient diagnosis and treatment. Physicians are nowadays required to interact with a wide range of end user devices to access their medical applications. From a Dell precision workstation with locally hosted applications to latitude tabletswith applications running in a cloud, healthcare professionals may have to wait before using a specific application at an end-point, delaying medical treatment.

For these physicians it would be most beneficial if they could have an environment where they can access their applications from any device with a single sign-on, reducing time consuming actions during the course of a normal workday.

Dell’s Mobile Clinical Computing (MCC) solutionunderstands these issues and mitigates many of today’s Hospital key challenges:

  • Limiting the amount of time clinicians and nurses spend
    searching for available end points as well as the time spent
    accessing and then re-accessing applications
  • Providing a single sign-on instance that clinicians and
    nurses can use to authenticate seamlessly against endpoint
    and multiple applications
  • Providing quick and secure access to patient information
    on-demand using proximity and/or biometric
    authentication methods
  • Reducing and limit the time spent by IT staff managing client
    systems in their environment

According to recent trialsheld in Europe, Dell has proven that our MCC solution can deliver:

  • Up to 215+ minutes per user per week productivity gain (9% improvement)
  • Economic value of productivity can be up to £10,000 per user per annum
  • Appropriate Information Security delivered that’s workable for users
  • Improved patient safety, quality of care and patient satisfaction

I think you would agree with me that the latter is the most important one.

Dell Mobile Clinical Computing Solution is a desktop virtualization and identity access management solution built on top of the DVS Enterprise 6020 Solution and powered by the latest Dell 12th generation servers. The Dell MCC Solution is offered in both Rack or Blade server configurations with an option for storage on Dell EqualLogic or Compellentsolutions which allow for automatic load balancing, tiering, snapshots and replication.

Dell PowerEdge 12th generation servers are designed with more memory capacity and more integrated I/O (input/output) than the previous generation and can provide up to 18 times more Microsoft® SQL Server® transactions per second when using PowerEdge Express Flash Storage solid-state drives (SSDs) (directly connected to the CPU and memory bus).

Healthcare environments requires end user devices to be up and running 24/7 as there is no timeframe on patient care. Dell WYSEthin client have no moving parts that can brake down, like fans or hard drives. WYSE thin client have a lifecycle that is twice the lifecycle of a traditional PC, reducing validation and transitioning costs. An added bonus is that with a thin client environment, centralized IT management is now possible to ensure optimal system performance.

A solution is never complete with out the right support for your environment. Dell offers customers the Dell ProSupport for MCC.
