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

Epic Infrastructure Updates – How technology helps reduce the infrastructure cost while improving the availability and clinical experience for the industry’s best EHR.
The world of IT is constantly changing. The first wave of enterprise-wide EHR adoption is hitting its peak and healthcare delivery systems are looking for ways to reduce cost and optimize the infrastructure used to support these massive, mission-critical applications. With so many new announcements coming, tune in to hear from one of the premier partners, Open Systems Technologies; Directors of Infrastructure, CIOs and Enterprise Architects will be given an update on what has changed in the last few months that will inform their future decision making:
• Running Epic and enterprise applications on virtualized LINUX platforms
• Updated technologies in the client application delivery space that make an enormous difference for clinicians that can save a delivery system millions of dollars a year.
• How data analytics can take the data sources that are being built for health care transactions and drive new value creation.
• Updates from the next generation enterprise UNIX that give hospitals a new, cost-effective solution for running their Cache’ database servers.
RISC/UNIX servers for database applications were never intended to meet the demands of the efficiency and scalability that today’s organizations demand. Concerns regarding the expense of the OS’s proprietary hardware, however, are leading IT professionals to consider embarking on Unix-to-Linux migrations — and advancements in x86 servers like HP’s DL980 are easing the transition to platforms like Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 6.
SAP HANA has become a mission-critical application in many organizations but choosing the proper hardware option to optimize performance is essential. A prebuilt and integrated appliance like HP AppSystems for SAP HANA, based on industry-leading HP DL980 servers, can accelerate solution deployment, providing a highly supportable architecture, and minimizing any unplanned downtime.
"One of the most common IT buzzwords is “Big Data.” The question is, what are the business benefits and value to your organization. This video shows how HP brings the benefits of Big Data to life and to the benefit of your organization."

Are you considering an x86 server for a new business-critical application, or are you thinking of migrating an existing Unix RISC application to x86? x86 systems and CPU technology have evolved rapidly over the last several years and this platform is now capable of running workloads previously associated with larger proprietary UNIX systems. In addition, both Windows and Linux, the principal operating environments for these servers, have matured to the point where the combination of x86 server and these OS' can handle workloads associated with the largest UNIX systems from as little as three years ago.
Tune into this live webcast with our guest Forrester analyst Richard Fichera as he speaks to the underlying trends driving modern infrastructure, when to consider moving from Unix to Windows or Linux changing principal operating environments, what to look for in an x86 platform and porting guidance. Rich will be joined by two IT executives who will share their business challenges, their decision-making process, and the business benefits they have achieved with their chosen database server solution, followed by a live Q & A.
