Below is our most relevant information from the past week. Topics we covered include the HIMSS Cancellation due to the Coronavirus, healthcare IoT in 2020, our summary of what you would have seen at HIMSS, and more.
Breaking News **Update On HIMSS 2020 ** HIMSS Cancellation
Due to concerns over the Coronavirus, HIMSS 2020 has been canceled.
From the press release: “The advisory panel recognized that industry understanding of the potential reach of the virus has changed significantly in the last 24 hours, which has made it impossible to accurately assess risk. Additionally, there are concerns about disproportionate risk to the healthcare system given the unique medical profile of Global Conference attendees and the consequences of potentially displacing healthcare workers during a critical time, as well as stressing the local health systems were there to be an adverse event.”
Closing the conference seems to be the most responsible thing to do. But we will miss our friends, old and new, that we were looking forward to seeing at HIMSS!
How IoT is Enabling Better Patient Care in 2020
There are plenty of ways IoT is enabling better patient care in 2020. IoT can help reduce ER wait times, costs, while lengthening hardware lifecycle. Stratodesk software also enables IT to manage their IoT devices. It is the one truly multi-platform, multi-cloud IoT solution.
What is a Stratodesk Device?
Essentially, a Stratodesk endpoint is any device. Any device converted by Stratodesk NoTouch OS, that is. With NoTouch OS, you can transform virtually any hardware device, regardless of make, model or manufacturer, into a high powered, Stratodesk NoTouch endpoint. Many devices also come with NoTouch preinstalled. Take the Stratodesk Citrix Ready workspace hub, for example. Or Stratodesk NoTouch Go. Or even LG All-in-One Thin Clients.
Here’s What You Missed at HIMSS 2020
While the conference was understandably shut down due to concerns over the coronavirus, you can still see what Stratodesk was planning to show attendees thanks to this fantastic blog post we shared on the Citrix blog. In this blog post, Stratodesk Content Manager, Joseph Anderson, writes about how Stratodesk and Citrix work together in order to deliver next-evolution intelligent workspaces to end users globally.
