Accelerating patient-centric care with breakthrough VDI solutions

Escalating demand for virtual healthcare is driving a massive shift across the industry. Organizations face immense pressure to care for a rising number of patients who require immediate, highly personalized care in countless locations.

HPE-AMD-Healthcare-VDI-virtual-desktop.pngGlobal trends such as population growth, increasing life expectancy, novel infectious diseases, and unhealthy lifestyles have triggered widespread need for health services. These patients require more doctor’s visits, complex treatments, and medications as well as the use of specialized equipment and personal devices which produce troves of medical data. The ability to tap into this data is key to provide patients with care that is timely, affordable, and high-quality.

Seamless, secure access to medical data is crucial to enhance clinical experiences and, most important, to improve patient outcomes. Healthcare organizations know that accessibility can mean the difference between patients getting a quick diagnosis and receiving the correct treatment or becoming a statistic. To achieve better results, patients must have faster and more effective ways to reach caregivers, share critical health information securely, and receive the support they need, whenever and wherever its required.

Organizations must find ways to expand Telehealth in order to meet the increasing demand for health services. Yet many lack the essential mobility to serve a network of remote patients. Outdated technologies lack the agility, flexibility, and security necessary to streamline collaboration between patients and healthcare teams and ensure that medical data is readily available.

Virtual technologies are transforming the future of healthcare, extending the reach of today’s organizations, and providing patients with health services when and how they need them. Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) is the cornerstone of virtual environments. As healthcare teams leverage information and work together, VDI enables secure, reliable access to patients’ personal health information (PHI) by transferring an image of the data to any mobile device, while the data itself remains in centralized storage where it is safe. VDI provides real-time access to medical data, so healthcare decisions can be made instantly and acted on with greater precision. This kind of workflow efficiency not only increases clinical productivity, but also enables a higher quality of care, regardless of where the patient is located.

Expanding patient-centric healthcare

Advancements in VDI are revolutionizing healthcare delivery by putting patients first. Now, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) and AMD are fueling this effort with a new breed of VDI solutions. Our scalable virtual technologies combine robust HPE servers built on industry-leading AMD CPUs with Infinity Guard technology to maximize productivity, drive operational efficiency, and protect and mobilize a growing network of patients and healthcare teams. We offer seamless, secure access to data on countless devices, so everyone can benefit from fast and dependable performance.

Systems like the HPE ProLiant AMD-based servers are a flexible platform for VDI that enables a range of healthcare applications. These systems are powered by the latest generation AMD EPYC™ processors which feature the highest core count available and extreme memory density, making our solutions agile and resilient to accelerate patient-centric care. AMD Secure Encrypted Virtualization, an important feature of AMD Infinity Guard technology, adds an extra layer of security by encrypting medical data even while it is in use across mobile devices.

HPE makes it easy to deploy and manage virtual environments securely. Designed with Citrix and VMware Horizon®, the HPE portfolio built on AMD EPYC™ processors provides the flexibility to rapidly deliver and refresh desktops and devices. To select and optimize the right tools and applications, HPE Pointnext Services provides deep technical knowledge and innovation to support organizations as they implement the latest virtual technologies. HPE Pointnext Services offers a portfolio of operational, advisory, and professional services to plan, deploy, and modify VDI to fit escalating patient requirements. This approach includes accessing and eliminating roadblocks, identifying target healthcare applications, and setting workflow and performance requirements to ensure each deployment can scale to accommodate rising industry demands.

HPE gives healthcare organizations choice in how they acquire and consume IT. Beyond traditional financing and leasing, HPE GreenLake offers VDI-as-a-service, a pay-per-use consumption model with the security and control of on-premises IT.

Powering the new wave of healthcare

VDI is empowering the healthcare industry to hone and expand patient care while keeping data safe. These virtual technologies are unlocking the life-altering ability to meet patients wherever they are, delivering vital insights, diagnoses, and treatments to remote locations around the world. The latest breakthroughs in VDI are designed to help healthcare teams work quickly and more intelligently, to manage today’s challenges and tomorrow’s patient needs. Organizations can build their ideal solutions with extreme compute power and the world’s highest-performing CPUs.1

Solutions from HPE and AMD can help create a robust environment to accelerate medical insight and promote the highest-quality care. We are committed to extending integrated, cost-effective healthcare to a growing population of patients.
