Cloud Desktops for Healthcare
The healthcare industry has been among the earliest adopters of Cloud Desktops for a number of reasons. Many practitioners and researchers require remote access to clinical and patient data while the industry as a whole is required to meet strict regulatory compliance mandates when it comes to protected health information (PHI). For IT administrators, however, securing sensitive PHI data and critical applications across multiple devices is nearly impossible through traditional desktop architectures.
Clinicians are increasingly dependent on multiple mobile devices to provide quality medical care and research, whether it is from a personal device or one that is company-owned. Often, healthcare organizations have lean IT departments with limited technical abilities combined with strict budgets making it a challenge to implement remote desktops in a safe and protected way.
