Wyse Technology, the domain experts in server-centric computing (SCC), will demonstrate how thin clients can create a more secure computing enterprise at the 2003 Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Conference, this week in San Diego. With increased pressure on healthcare organizations to adhere to the new rules of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) by the U.S. government’s April 14 deadline, Wyse is on hand to show how thin clients can help. These new rules state that healthcare organizations must provide reasonable and appropriate safeguards to protect the integrity and confidentiality of healthcare information transmitted electronically. Wyse will demonstrate how its thin-client technology, which includes the newly released wireless tablet, will allow healthcare organizations to protect critical information.
At booth #5307, several products will be showcased including the Wyse(R) Winterm(TM) 3820TX wireless tablet thin client, 1200LE and 9450XE. The Winterm 3820TX wireless tablet thin-client ensures that critical data and software are stored on the server, not the device, which allows mobile users the highest level of security. The lightweight tablet satisfies a growing demand for instant wireless access to corporate networks from industries where employees require mobility within a building or campus, such as the healthcare industry. The 9450XE device delivers greater security, manageability and affordability of a thin client, along with the benefits of PC-like support for local applications and peripherals. The Wyse Winterm 1200LE is a completely stateless device that offers the utmost simplicity. All of the terminal’s settings are saved on the server, which allows users more control over the desktop experience.
“We are committed to providing an affordable means of computing for healthcare organizations to achieve HIPAA compliancy, and ensure these organizations have an infrastructure in place to keep patient and hospital records secure and confidential,” said David Rand, director of corporate marketing at Wyse Technology. “Our new products offerings, like the tablet thin client and server optimizer software, are examples of how we continue to introduce new technology to meet the individual needs of our customers.”
The 2003 Annual HIMSS Conference and Exhibition provides attendees the opportunity to learn about the latest in healthcare industry intelligence, find solutions to the most pressing professional challenges and network with other industry professionals. Over 20,000 healthcare professionals will descend upon HIMSS to view exhibitor technologies, attend workshops, educational sessions and earn continuing education credentials.
“With our Wyse thin-client solution, we’ve eliminated virtually all of the challenges that we used to face at the desktop level,” said Rob Lawrence, senior systems engineer of information technology at the Palo Alto Medical Foundation.
Wyse’s secure, managed Winterm thin clients help maximize IT budgets and minimize the risk of unauthorized access to mission-critical information. Wyse thin clients are secure access devices that support 128-bit encryption and are suitable for both public and private healthcare environments. The devices provide multiple unique access security levels. This includes support for both biometrics and smart card security peripherals. The wide variety of chassis, include integrated flat-panel display units and provide an unobtrusive or invisible desktop for the healthcare industry. In addition, Wyse Winterm thin clients meet FDA cleaning standards, make no noise that could bother patients or staff and have low maintenance requirements.
