Healthcare at VMworld 2013: Best Practices in Action

Technology is enabling healthcare to accelerate its innovation and industry transformation. And I’m reminded of this whenever I walk into a hospital – I think of the best practices current physicians follow and the researchers who are breaking new ground on a daily basis. I believe cloud, mobility and collaboration technologies are the key building blocks that will ultimately help transform the healthcare landscape like nothing we have ever seen.

As a healthcare IT professional, you face unique and seemingly never-ending challenges. You must meet government mandates while optimizing the clinician’s workflow. You must improve care systems reliability and drive agility. You must make it easier for patients to access  their own health records while electronically collaborating with their physicians and caregivers.  With pressure mounting to improve patient-care quality and delivery while lowering costs, how is your healthcare organization maximizing IT?

At VMworld 2013, August 25-29 in San Francisco, you’ll find ways to defy convention. We’ll show you more about our VMware vCloud for Healthcare solution and how it’s transforming the cost, quality and delivery of patient care. You’ll experience sessions and panels presented by our healthcare customers that specifically address key issues related to business continuity, end-user computing, and security and compliance. Here’s an overview of some of the sessions outlined in this year’s content catalog that you won’t want to miss:
