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."
