Imagine your last trip to the doctor’s office or hospital. You enter and are greeted by an employee who gathers your personal and medical information to pass on to the doctor. You will likely meet with a nurse or assistant, who will take vital signs, do a basic examination, and gather further information to pass on to the doctor or care-giver. Finally, you see a physician or medical professional who you expect to have your personal information and your examination information, to make the most educated decision regarding your illness or treatment.
In just the short time you’ve dedicated to this visit, you’ve shared some of your most personal information – financial, physical and emotional – all of which will be used to diagnose you, treat you and bill you – and all of which you assume is necessary for your health.
We assume that all the information we give medical professionals is shared, accessible to the right people, and hidden from the general public, but how do healthcare providers ensure that patient PII (personally identifiable information) is available to healthcare workers and secure from the rest of the world?
Cloud-based Virtual Desktop Infrastructures have been filling the gaps for healthcare professionals for years, with a recent explosion in deployments due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The “Global Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) Market: Size & Forecasts with Impact Analysis of COVID-19 (2020-2024)”, released by Research and Markets, provides an in-depth analysis of the global VDI market based on a wide range of criteria.
Yahoo! News reported that the report indicates a massive leap in VDI deployment between 2020 and 2024, spurred on by the needs the pandemic has highlighted, including simplification, centralized management, productivity, data security, bandwidth efficiency, simplicity and cost-savings.
Sangfor VDI is the latest in virtual desktop cloud solutions, based on hyper-converged infrastructure. Through deeply integrated server virtualization, desktop virtualization and storage virtualization, it only takes an aDesk thin client appliance and a cloud terminal to deliver rapid deployment of cloud platform.
How are hospitals and medical centers using VDI and its sister technology, hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) to enable the best and fastest medical care technology can provide? Don’t take our word for it – in August of 2020 Sangfor spoke with their customer, Mariano Marcos Memorial Hospital and Medical Center in the Philippines, about their experience with Sangfor VDI and HCI, how it’s helped them facilitate digital transformation and how their users are reacting to the change. MMMH & MC are the biggest public hospital in the Locos Norte province of the Philippines – and also a happy Sangfor VDI and HCI customer.
