The digital landscape in healthcare is constantly changing, whilst patient needs are increasing and pressures to keep costs down are mounting. On the technology front, stories about data breaches dominate the headlines. And yet the industry has come to increasingly realise it must use IT as a facilitator to deliver more and better care at a lower cost. For many companies, the solution has been to move more workloads from traditional systems to the cloud.
One way some organisations have addressed this issue has been through the adoption of Chrome Enterprise and Chrome devices. Because it can be faster, more secure and integrated with critical virtualization solutions, Chrome OS has seen rapid adoption in the healthcare sector. Organisations around the world are using Chrome Enterprise to provide a secure, future-proof entry point to the cloud, connecting their staff to data-driven systems so they can focus on what’s most important—delivering great patient care.
Bringing Chrome OS to healthcare organisations
From secure, self-service kiosks to shared nurse workstations, there are many ways Chrome OS can offer better experiences for staff, visitors and patients alike. And with a variety of formats and price points, Chrome devices have the flexibility to fit a broad range of use cases. Here are a few things the healthcare industry can do with Chrome Enterprise:
Free up staff from fixed workstations
By deploying Chromebooks, staff get improved access to information and virtualized clinical software no matter where they are, allowing them to spend less time at their desks and more time caring for patients.
Improve operational efficiency and make training more accessible with shared Chrome devices and cloud-based resources, without compromising quality or data security.
Give patients more control
Self-serve kiosks with easy to manage digital signage can keep patients informed of appointment status or next steps in real-time.
