Expand your VDI use cases with Graphics Acceleration Solutions Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) is now a mature technology that is being adopted by organizations with increasing popularity. However, the user community who needs high-end graphics capabilities in their work (such as 3D modelling and simulations) were somewhat skeptical about the capabilities and performance of VDI with applications using 3D graphics, compared to the performance they can expect from a physical PC or workstation with a dedicated GPU. Recent advances in VDI help make this performance gap narrower by providing the capabilities for either a pool of virtual desktops (shared GPU) or, to a specific virtual desktop (GPU pass through), depending on the user requirements.

Join Teradici for a deep dive on Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) deployment options for VMware Horizon View and walk away with the GPU knowledge to increase productivity and accelerate your application performance in your virtual environment.

  • As new HIPAA rules and regulations come into effect at the end of 2013, you may be wondering if you, and your cloud service provider, are really ready. Many of us have fallen into the trap of “HIPAA in a box” claims, but the sad truth is no service provider can get you to HIPAA compliance alone. HIPAA compliance is all about managing risk… who’s managing yours?
  • The promise of the "Health Cloud" to improve patient outcomes by extending the point of care, enabling closer clinical collaboration and lowering costs has been discussed for some time. However, how much of this has been media hype? Have healthcare organizations really embraced the cloud? And in those cases where they have done so, how have those organizations managed to address issues of data security, and integration into other applications?

    Join us as our guest speakers Missy Krasner, MD of Healthcare and Life Sciences at Box and Josh Newman, Director of Health Strategy at Salesforce.com survey the current state of cloud adoption in the healthcare space, and share both success stories and learning lessons.
    Issues they will address include:

    - What are the key use cases where the "Health Cloud" has been adopted successfully?
    - How have data security, compliance and integration issues been addressed?
    - What are emerging trends as we look forwards to 2014?

    Presenters:

    Missy Krasner, Managing Director, Healthcare and Life Sciences, Box

    Josh Newman, Director of Product Management and Health Strategy at Salesforce.com and Family Physician

    David Chao, Senior Product Manager at MuleSoft
  • There is a ton of hype surrounding ‘disruptive’ technology innovation in healthcare but nothing is truly making a dent in the healthcare industry the same way as disruptions have occurred in other industries. The slow but sure march from Fee For Service Based Care to Outcomes Driven Care has certainly started but it’s neither fast enough nor substantial enough to bend the cost curve or improve value to patients in the short term. Join award-winning and internationally recognized health tech futurist Shahid Shah, known as “The Healthcare IT Guy” across the internet, as he talks about how we can get beyond the hype by focusing on actionable innovation. Specifically, he will answer the following questions:

    * What does innovation in healthcare mean?

    * Where are the major areas in healthcare where innovation is required?

    Important takeaways for the attendees of this session will include:

    * Understand PBU: Payer vs. Benefiter vs. User

    * Understand why healthcare businesses buy stuff so you can build the right thing
  • Though risk assessments are required by the HIPAA & HITECH regulations, the process of assessing risk can highlight areas for investment and alignment with industry trends. Why not use risk assessments to guide strategy and align constituencies in your organization? Using these techniques, document infrastructure to:

    · Improve security and IT efficiency in clinical record exchange

    · Meet Meaningful Use Stage 2 requirements for patient engagement

    · Plan for mobile health projects

    · Gain alignment for investment in infrastructure

    This presentation provides a framework for understanding the strengths and weaknesses of IT Infrastructure and enables you to clearly explain to leaders the importance of IT Infrastructure in strategic and regulatory initiatives.
  • Healthcare is undergoing several transformations simultaneously that are impacting the way information is used and managed by care providers, payers and consumers. Transformations in care delivery, IT infrastructure, the competitive ecosystem, the shift to data-driven decision making, and activated patients are all impacting the creation, management, exchange and utilization of health information. Healthcare organizations are at various stages across each of these transformations, making this a very fluid environment of technology adaptation and corporate cultural change.

    How must organizations change to adapt and leverage health information differently now and in the future? What trends are transitional and what trends require rapid and permanent adaptation? How will smaller provider organizations adapt to the increased IT requirements and rapid implementation and deployments coming over the next few years? How will the vendor landscape of health IT change in the coming years? Who can you bet on to deliver solutions that will adapt to the future of healthcare? Join Frost & Sullivan in this online discussion of our insights on these and other key issues impacting the management of health information.
  • Persona Workshops. Executive Sponsorship. Collaboration. The solution to a successful VDI implementation is not adding more technology. The proof in this logic is evident at Metro Health, an OST client, which is a leading example of VDI implementation. In fact, according to an executive at Hewlett-Packard, much of what HP has learned about VDI has come from their experience working with Metro Health.

    At the end of the day, leveraging technology successfully in today’s healthcare environments boils down to the following:
    - Speed and Efficiency: Deliver the most flexible and adaptive experience for clinicians & staff by giving them access to their data in 10 seconds or less
    - Access to Data & Mobility: Provide hospital staff access to their personal desktop where they need it, when they need it
    - Security and Safety: Increase security by removing patient data from physical desktops and exceed industry safety standards
