Transform the Cost, Quality, and Delivery of Patient Care

VMware vCloud® for Healthcare is a comprehensive framework and partner ecosystem supporting the entire IT care environment—from point of care to the most critical patient care systems—to help safely accelerate the transition to truly connected care. The industry’s first end-to-end care cloud computing platform, vCloud for Healthcare is enabling healthcare organizations to exchange information and deliver secure, agile and reliable patient care products and services. A private cloud platform with hybrid cloud capabilities, vCloud for Healthcare offers the IT agility providers need to prepare for and meet reform deadlines.

One Solution. Better Outcomes.

VMware has led the journey to healthcare IT reform with VMware AlwaysOn Point of Care™ Solution, a virtualized reference architecture that provides 24/7 availability and mobility. By making patient records securely and reliably available, regardless of the provider and patient location, VMware quickly reinforced the respect and trust of forward-thinking healthcare organizations globally.

Now with the holistic vCloud for Healthcare solution, care providers are empowered to lower cost and add efficiencies by safely transitioning legacy health information systems into modern, agile private and hybrid clouds. It is the only solution in the marketplace enabling organizations to:

  • Leverage industry-proven, KLAS-rated virtualization technology, supported and validated by world-leading healthcare application vendors.
  • Transform expensive, brittle, legacy systems and infrastructure into an agile, robust and secure private or hybrid cloud.
  • Quickly and securely deploy critical products and services (e.g., EMRs, revenue management and health information exchanges) required to achieve federal mandates such as ARRA-HITECH and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
  • Deliver both legacy and software-as-a-service-based patient-care applications to caregivers, regardless of their location or which mobile device they choose.
  • Build an intelligent healthcare infrastructure that learns the unique needs and compliance requirements of specific patient-care systems—avoiding outages, performance and capacity issues, and noncompliance with state and federal regulations.
  • Automate and manage heterogeneous systems, infrastructure and public clouds.
  • Move regulated, protected patient health information across the continuum of care—from private clouds to hybrid clouds to public clouds and back again.
  • Leverage existing assets without having to purchase new, piecemeal software and build from the ground up.

vCloud for Healthcare Components

VMware is making it easier for healthcare organizations to build a cloud infrastructure, making available the key elements you need to deliver a patient care cloud and optimize your VMware vSphere® environment.

  • Clinical point of care – Save time and improve workflows with secure authentication (e.g., the touch of a finger or tap of a badge) to clinical workspaces and patient-care applications.
  • Application management and catalog services – Streamline processes with efficient self-service access and management of approved end-user applications.
  • Mobility and collaboration – Improve connected care with access to patient-care applications, including EMRs and CPOE systems, from any device, anywhere.
  • Care Systems Analytics – Reduce downtime of critical patient-care applications and remediate issues before they affect end users.
  • Industry security compliance – Enable proactive regulatory compliance for the cloud and deliver dynamic clinical IT services in a trusted infrastructure.
  • Care systems continuity – Improve IT performance and ensure always-available applications.
  • Care systems automation – Improve efficiency by simplifying and automating IT operations.
  • Healthcare vCloud Connect – Ensure regulated workloads can be safely moved to public clouds via a hybrid model.
  • Care systems application manager – Deploy, monitor and scale multitier healthcare applications in hybrid clouds.
  • ISV Support – Deliver fully-supported and validated applications and cloud services.
