St. Claraspital leverages RES to revolutionize the digital workspace experience to improve patient care

PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 20 – RES, the leader in digital workspaces, today announced it received the VMworld Best of 2015 Award for “Best Desktop Virtualization” at the annual VMworld 2015 Europe event. RES was recognized, with St. Claraspital, for its Dynamic Desktop initiative that enhanced the clinician experience and elevated the level of patient care within their VMware environment.

St. Claraspital is a privately run major acute-care hospital in Switzerland that provides comprehensive medical expertise through its specialized abdominal and tumor centers, emergency department and outpatient clinics. With more than 1,000 PC workstations to support, the healthcare provider’s IT goal was to revolutionize the overall digital workspace experience and adapt to the needs and workstyle of the roaming clinician – ensuring their experience was the same regardless of workstation.

Long time RES Partner, uniQconsulting AG, designed and implemented the Dynamic Desktop solution, based on the RES ONE Workspace, to provide St. Claraspital’s clinicians a personalized and seamless experience across all devices and locations, allowing them to increase their time focused on patients. “Today, clinicians just sign into any workstation and can get working within a few seconds,” says Marcel Cadisch, Sales Manager at uniQconsulting. “We call it the "follow-me workstation.”

Additionally, RES secured their compliance and patient medical records with its unique ability to automatically revoke access to files when clinicians left approved networks and environments. “RES helps remove barriers between information technology and clinicians” says Ellen Derrico, Senior Director of Healthcare at RES Software, “St. Claraspital has transformed IT service delivery enabling clinicians to deliver faster, better, more compliant and more effective healthcare, and as a result, the patient wins.”

Through its partnership with RES, St. Claraspital is now delivering a dynamic desktop solution that:

  • Offers a rich clinical user experience that allows clinicians to roam around the hospital and have their personal workspace readily available.
  • Reduces login and technology request times and increases time with patients
  • Improves overall security ensuring clinicians only have access to approved applications and services at any given time.

“We are honored to receive this VMworld Best of 2015 Award alongside a great organization such as St. Claraspital,” says Al Monserrat, CEO, RES Software. “This recognition validates our commitment to providing innovative solutions that enable users to effectively work from anywhere, on any device, at any time, all while staying compliant and secure – and more importantly, making a difference in patient care.”
