Modernize Healthcare IT with Citrix

Enabling more flexible IT management models and adapting to growing healthcare needs for off-site clinics, telehealth support, and secure patient record sharing.

The healthcare industry has long been overburdened by slow-moving innovation. The complexity of the medical ecosystem may be the principal reason for this but the hesitancy to adopt new technology remains a barrier to the modernization of healthcare IT.

After all, it’s a highly regulated industry where a simple issue with availability, security, or compliance can turn into a costly lawsuit. If any system stops working, this could lead to critical life-and-death scenarios in many healthcare environments.

Traditional IT has been the business as usual until the pandemic broke out and enforced a paradigm shift even for the most change-averse environments such as the health care industry.

Healthcare challenges in the new normal:

  • IT must facilitate doing more with less, with healthcare having 6.0% fewer employees in the workforce now than before the pandemic.
  • Data privacy has been a growing compliance concern as telemedicine becomes the mainstream for remote patient care.
  • Healthcare IT goals have been accelerated: linking patient records, driving interoperability, ensuring cybersecurity, and overseeing accuracy of patient data.
  • The new digital health agenda focuses on developing virtual care, handling financial impact of COVID-19 and implementing resilient technology to deal with unforeseen circumstances.
  • Accommodating clinicians, non-clinical staff, IT, administrators and other staff.
  • Alleviating technology worries for clinicians so they can spend more time with patients.
  • Securely enabling work on any device and any network at any time for clinicians and support staff.
  • Working with tight budgets and conservative industry norms.
  • Managing M&As, disparate EMRs, legacy apps.
