VDI for efficiency in healthcare. The C. Poma Hospital project
The Carlo Poma Hospital in Mantua and Infonet Solutions are Italy’s frontrunners in the application of the most advanced IT platforms in the world of healthcare.
The desktop virtualisation process (using the CITRIX platform) successfully implemented by the Infonet Solutions technicians in the hospital in Mantua led to a net improvement in the hospital’s performance and services, also bringing economic savings in maintenance costs (which represent on average 70% of costs).
The adoption of these processes enables enhancement of efficiency – for example, by centralising backup, data and information protection systems and the control of data flows – , rationalisation of economies and the provision of innovative business continuity solutions.
The results achieved with the launching of the steps towards Cloud computing and the possibilities of application of the project in Italian hospitals were presented by the Carlo Poma Hospital management and the Infonet Solutions technical staff in the picturesque setting of Palazzo Te in Mantua.
