Thin Clients in Healthcare
It’s all about HIPAA. The use of thin clients in healthcare is on the rise. Protect your sensitive patient data with thin client technology – and avoid being the next lawsuit.
You’ve seen the headlines. All too frequently healthcare facilities experience data breaches that negatively impact their patients, reputations, and bottom lines.
HIPAA regulations and the amount of sensitive patient data on providers’ hardware make IT security the number one concern in healthcare IT. Because thin clients have no hard drive, all sensitive patient data is stored on a server in the data center. Data cannot be copied from a PC in a doctor’s office, stolen off of a laptop, or simply left unattended for people to see.
And with shrinking budgets, healthcare facilities who switch to thin clients can ensure lower costs and avoid costly lawsuits without sacrificing the performance needed in fast-paced environments.
In fact, Devon IT’s mobile thin client notebook, the SafeBook E5400X, is one of the most popular thin clients in healthcare because of its ability to protect sensitive patient data.
