Secure Point of Care Access to EMR Applications with Virtualization, Dell Wyse Thin Clients and Imprivata
Phoebe Putney Health System is a network of hospitals and medical facilities in Georgia. Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital, one of Georgia's largest comprehensive regional medical centers, is a 443-bed teaching hospital and a regional center for cancer and cardiac medicine. Phoebe Sumter Medical Center, opened in December 2011 after being destroyed by a tornado in 2007, it is a state-of-the-art 183,000 square foot facility featuring all private rooms. Mike Elder, Director of IS for Phoebe Putney, and Ross Youngdale, Director of IS for Phoebe Sumter, will provide a case study of how they virtualized servers and desktops with VMware, installed Dell Wyse thin clients as the endpoint device, and used Imprivata to provide secure and fast access to McKesson, MEDITECH and other applications at the point of care.


Leveraging IT Across Physician Practices and Clinics
Come learn how you can leverage Imprivata OneSign to streamline workflows within your physician practices and clinics enhancing the patient experience, improving the care provider’s productivity and increasing revenue.


Understanding the Mobile Health Ecosystem
This session will detail the nature of the evolving mobile health ecosystem, focusing on technology’s impact on workflow and culture, patient engagement, and best practices for creating a holistic, strategic digital health policy within your own organization.


As mHealth continues to define the health care industry, the market continues to grow, estimated to reach a value of $4.6 billion by 2014. Within that value are the hopes that wireless networks, mobile devices, new applications, and innovative approaches to care delivery and reimbursement can tackle the pressure points in a fragmented health care system. Mobile health techniques could help alleviate issues from an aging population and growing numbers of chronically ill patients to anticipated physician shortages.


Tech-savvy patients and a new crop of tech-savvy providers are driving the demand behind increasing mHealth. People are using social media to interact with their peers and discuss medical conditions, and a wave of new applications is helping patients monitor prescriptions, receive appointment reminders, and send information to their caregivers. And that, in turn, is driving more sophisticated care and communication among providers and patients. Physicians equally are happy to use their own devices if it means productivity increases. But challenges remain in aligning mobile growth with the unique needs of health care.

Simplify, Secure and Standardize the Clinician Desktop

In this session attendees will learn how three major hospitals overcame significant obstacles with their user experience and adopting the new technologies required to achieve Meaningful Use deadlines. By using technologies from RES Software, Imprivata, and Citrix, UMS crafted a solution that addressed all of the hospital’s major concerns allowing UMS to deliver a successful clinician experiences. Each hospital faced deadlines with Meaningful Use and a paradigm shift in how they deliver technology to their clinicians. If the user experience was poor, the adoption of EHR would be equally as poor and deadlines would be missed.
