Healthcare providers, hospitals, aged care providers, rehab centers have been VDI early adopters, at times when it wasn’t even know as VDI. Dramatic availability requirements, strict budget regulations and, especially for US users, HIPAA compliance both in private and government-run organizations have created the demand for something better than Windows PC networks. NoTouch Desktop has been used in healthcare since its inception and first generation.

Whatever solution is used on the server side – most hospitals chose to use Citrix (historically XenApp after Presentation Server after MetaFrame, NoTouch can work with all of them), VMware, or Microsoft Remote Desktop, connectivity to your server can be taken for granted with NoTouch Desktop. Let NoTouch power your PCs, your Thin Clients, instead of the quagmire of old Windows installations, Windows lockdown tools and different proprietary vendor-specific Thin Client platforms.

While many of the VDI advantages are sector-neutral, several specific advantages exist, such as dictation and RFID/smartcard authentication support:

  • Hardware agnostic. NoTouch runs on standard PCs, and also on Thin Clients: whatever you have bought yesterday, it won’t be in your way today and tomorrow. NoTouch OS runs on all these machines and manages them all. NoTouch allows you to reuse existing hardware as well as buy new.
  • Authentication support. Smartcard support, RFID tag readers work with NoTouch, including Imprivata OneSign
  • Dictation support. The Stratodesk software stack has always been dictation-enabled. Philips SpeechMike and foot pedals are supported and forwarded into virtual desktops.
  • HIPAA compliance. Specifically for compliance with US health and privacy laws, customers find that running VDI with thin endpoints is a big relief and allows them to take pain points away from the endpoints/client PCs.
  • Fast and free support. Our basic e-mail support is free and you most likely won’t need any premium options.
  • Flexible network architecture with central administration. Can you integrate home workers? What about consultants and part-time workers? Give them access, but don’t sacrifice security or manageability – that is what only NoTouch does well.
  • Cost effective. It may be tempting to do nothing at all or go with so-called “free” tools for simple Windows lock-down. But these add complexity, they don’t reduce complexity. NoTouch builds on open-source software, but comes as a packaged ready-to-go-solution with commercial support for a very little price, so it combines the best of both worlds.
  • Fault-tolerant architecture. Our system is designed carefully so that not one component failure can bring the whole system down.
  • Central Management. Includes tactical overview, group-based multilevel inheritance and individual group and client actions.
  • Agile partnership. When you have made your decision, you want to see things moving fast – as a lot depends on it. Stratodesk is an agile company willing and capable of supporting you fast, then, when you need it.
  • Fast and free support. Our basic e-mail support is free and you most likely won’t need any premium options.
  • Excellent track record and a world-wide customer base in health care and aged care make Stratodesk the endpoint provider of choice for any health institution
