The Best of VMworld Europe User Awards recently took place in Barcelona, recognizing organizations that have realized the operational efficiencies, business agility and technological prowess via their virtualization and cloud strategies. We have been regular participants at many VMworld events over the years, both presenting and showcasing at the annual event. We were very happy to also be a part of some of the great virtualization success stories showcased in the VMworld Europe User Awards announced a few months back.

The winner for the 2015 Best Desktop Virtualization Project award was St Claraspital, whose virtualization deployment included a backbone of Teradici solutions. As highlighted on ComputerWeekly, we’d like to share the case study of how St Claraspital was able to leverage virtualization to solve many IT issues.


Supporting Roaming Profiles at St. Claraspital

St. Claraspital is a privately run acute-care hospital in Switzerland; St Claraspital runs two specialist care centers and acts as a reference facility for patients suffering with heart, lung and orthopedic problems. To give clinicians more tools to quickly and effectively respond to patient problems, the hospital’s IT department decided to undergo a transformative project which would allow clinicians to safely and securely use mobile devices to access patient data.

At the time of the upgrade, St. Claraspital was facing many challenges with data security and inefficiencies around data access. For example, the hospital faced challenges with doctors and nurses lacking the ability to stay logged in while roaming the hospital, culminating the “log-in” process to an unnecessary 30-minute piece of every day.

St. Claraspital chose to deploy the VMware Horizon View zero-client virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) on Teradici PCoIP zero clients. Clinicians can now pick up any device and log into their own personal workspace ensuring a consistent user experience regardless of device used and location in the hospital.

“By using Teradici-based zero clients – which require no local management at all – we can easily pick up and move the workstations now as they are completely unrelated to users. This, in turn, really helps us to optimise human resources tasked with these moves,” notes Yves Laukemann, CIO at St Claraspital.

St. Claraspital chose to use RES One Workspace technology to manage the aspects of the user workspace on the endpoint and the Imprivata Single-Sign On healthcare tool, which uses a badge tap-in/tap-out authentication system rather than traditional usernames and passwords. The use of these technologies have together paved the way for this award-winning virtualization deployment to save time and ultimately raise the level of care at St. Claraspital.
