retrieved, and exchanged.

Enable healthcare providers and public health and social services agencies to turn data into information insights, so they can deliver higher quality care to more patients and citizens at a lower cost.

Optimized Desktops and Devices. Given the wide variety of people who access health data, ICT staff must ensure that clinicians, patients and citizens, caseworkers, and others have efficient and controlled access to the information they need, no matter what their location is or which device they are using. Offering this flexibility requires that ICT staff use centralized management and security policies. They also need a single, integrated view of client devices across environments. This approach simplifies application and resource management when it comes to delivery, configuration, monitoring, and reporting.

The Benefits of an Integrated,

Optimized Infrastructure

The idea of implementing or managing all of these offerings—whether through traditional or cloud-based computing models—may seem daunting. But the fact is, they are all inter- related, as evidenced by the commonality of many of the products within the Optimized to solve the relevant issues. As a result, implementing any one of them makes delivering the next one less complicated.

More importantly, the top benefits of an integrated infrastructure strongly correlate to issues that medical practitioners expect health ICT executives to solve One of the more daunting issues in this regard is the ability to consolidate information from multiple sources in a way that offers consistent access for a variety of users without burdening ICT with an untenable integration challenge. In those situations, cloud computing can bring unprecedented capabilities for information delivery at reasonable cost with appropriate security.
