Healthcare Customers Talk VDI Success with Imprivata & Unidesk at HIMSS

Posted by Amy Larson on Apr 23, 2015

Last week at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) conference in Chicago, North Bend Medical Center (NBMC) and Peninsula Regional Medical Center (PRMC) presented in the Unidesk booth how they have collectively deployed over 1,000 virtual desktops. Both customers are streamlining access to clinical applications so doctors can spend more time caring for patients, while making virtual desktop and app management so simple that 1 administrator with help from service desk staff can manage the entire environment! The keys to their success? Imprivata and Unidesk!

Can't Virtualize Allscripts EHR in VDI? Layer It!

Posted by Jordan Murphy on Nov 5, 2014

Allscripts is the electronic health record (EHR) software for many small and mid-sized medical practices. As more care providers move to Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI), they need a way to deliver Allscripts EHR to their new virtual desktops. Howerver, as most everyone now knows, and as Gartner covered recently in "The Secret Bottleneck of VDI," application delivery is one of the major reasons for stalled VDI projects and IT headaches. So, it's no surprise that many healthcare IT teams find they can't virtualize Allscripts for VDI application delivery.
