Coretek's Virtual Clinical Workstation Improves Patient Care at Texas Tech Health Center

LUBBOCK, TX--(Marketwired - July 16, 2014) - Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC) is the fastest growing medical school in Texas, as well as one of the area's largest healthcare providers. In order to keep pace with their growth, they were looking for ways to leverage technology and Electronic Medical Records (EMRs). The IT Department at TTUHSC brought in the experienced team from Coretek Services to design and implement a solution that ultimately improved patient care.

One of the biggest challenges healthcare organizations like TTUHSC face today is the time it takes to log in to multiple applications from various devices and locations. Karla Silva, Director of Clinical Systems Support at TTUHSC in Odessa, brought in Coretek because she was impressed with the clinical workflow system they designed for their location in Odessa. The result was a more efficient single sign-on system that could shorten log on times from 2 minutes to 3-5 seconds, saving clinicians 1-2 hours per day. Additionally, Coretek's solution helped Texas Tech comply with the approaching Meaningful Use deadlines. 

According to Silva, "The technology is new in the marketplace and we wanted to partner with a firm that had successful implementations and understood clinical workflows, interactions and healthcare mandates." Coretek Services has helped over 100 Healthcare organizations across the country improve workflows and increase productivity.

Coretek's Virtual Clinical Workstation provides a fully decoupled virtualized desktop, user and application delivery environment accessed via a proximity badge tap. This allows users to roam seamlessly between their office, patient rooms, medical carts and mobile devices anywhere. The highly flexible, virtual system incorporates Coretek's own proprietary software along with Citrix, Imprivata and AppSense technology and provides extremely fast access to EMRs.

With the implementation of the Coretek solution, the IT organization at TTUHSC also saw improvements in resource utilization. Jorge Caballero, TTUHSC's Director of Infrastructure Technology said, "The big payoff comes with using VDI. If one device fails, it's easily replaced and the uptime and availability is better than with thin clients or PCs. The time it takes to maintain and distribute new applications is faster, and we are getting a lot less calls about lost passwords."

As hospitals are looking for ways to improve patient care and productivity, Coretek can customize a solution to meet their needs. Coretek is technology agnostic and will leverage existing technology and architecture to minimize costs. Per Ron Lisch, CEO of Coretek Services, "We are consultants first and due to our experience in healthcare, we know how to design solutions with the clinicians in mind."

It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...

For far too long technology teams have lived in siloes. Not only physical siloes, but cultural siloes pushed by competing objectives. This includes informational siloes where business users require one set of data and tech teams require different data. DevOps intends to bridge these gaps to make tech driven operations more aligned and efficient.
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning.

HyperConvergence came to market with the objective of being simple, flexible and to help drive down operating expenses. It reduced the footprint by bundling the compute/storage/network into one box. This brought a new set of challenges as the HyperConverged vendors are very focused on their own proprietary building blocks. If you want to scale in a certain way, let's say you identified a need for more storage and want to add a device that is not sold by the HyperConverged vendor, forget about it...
