For healthcare organizations of every size, delivering effective care at scale is a challenge. Mounting patient volumes, tighter budgets, cyberthreats, regulatory scrutiny and intense sanitization protocols all place new levels of pressure on both staff and IT infrastructure.
Yet, from the frenetic frontlines of care to the specialist’s office, the right technology can both improve the healthcare experience and boost key clinical and operational outcomes. In this article, you’ll discover the top four reasons leading healthcare organizations choose HP for healthcare and how this technology streamlines and simplifies the daily challenges of care delivery.
Today’s frequent sanitization protocols can take a significant toll on healthcare devices. From laptop keys to screens and trackpads, older technology often struggles to withstand regular cleaning with medical-grade wipes. The result is significant wear and tear. Many organizations have begun seeking out replacements.
With the HP Engage portfolio, you can safely sanitize with germicidal wipes every shift, every day, tested to withstand 10,000 cleanings.
Plus, HP devices are EMI compliant and certified to prevent electromagnetic interference with other technology, so you can use them in patient rooms and nurses’ stations. That means they’re always ready for the next user or patient — no delays and no damage safeguards your technology investment.
The pandemic saw a steep rise in cybercrime, with healthcare a particular target. Attack techniques are growing in sophistication, with exploits targeting every level of organizational infrastructure.
Having strong firewalls and server infrastructure protection does not fully secure endpoints like PCs and printers, as these devices are connected to the network. If they become compromised, the entire network — and the patient data connected to it — can be at risk.
Safeguard sensitive data and avoid costly breaches with a leader in data and computer security. Through proprietary HP technology, you can leverage layers of protection below, in and above the OS to proactively prevent threats and quickly recover in the event of a breach.
More device users leads to more time logging in, configuring and connecting. That can slow workflows and impede access to patient health records, clinical systems and telemedicine tools.
Technology requirements are not one-size-fits-all, and different uses, drive different needs for form factor, connectivity and compatibility. HP Engage devices offer multiple configurations with a wide range of connectivity options for peripherals and accessories, as well as a variety of placement and mounting options.
Adequately equipping your organization’s clinical areas can be costly, especially where major replacements or new investments are needed. Mobile clinical users, stationary clinical users, physicians and specialists all have their own technology needs. Catering to those needs effectively and at scale can put organizations under budgetary pressure.
Together, Insight and HP work with leading national Group Purchasing Organizations, helping hospitals and clinics lower their acquisition costs while maximizing investments. The result is cost-effective access to powerful technology that makes a difference in the lives of patients, providers and the community.
