Benefits for HealthcareIT in good shape
The challenge of medical applications
Delivering applications within a medical institute is quite a challenge, as medical services must be delivered 24×7 and procedures have to be in place that guarantee close to 100% uptime for all IT services. If, due to IT down-time, a hospital has to resort to a paper-based backup, it means poorer quality care for patients and an increase in costs, time and money, as information has to be digitized later.
Scense Workspace Management
Health Care organizations require integrated solutions that help enable better services and reduced costs throughout the healthcare field. By making information available when and where it’s needed, those solutions allow for adequate decisions and practices at the point of care and beyond.
Scense Workspace Management, including the Application Delivery capabilities, allow for flexible deployment of any medical application, including the ones that are updated more frequently than you would like. The real-time character of the Scense runtime system helps you maintaining your 24×7 operations.

Due to various regulations and requirements, healthcare organizations have to deal with a large number of applications and ensure they can be used by the right people at the right time. Medical applications that in some cases are a nightmare to IT departments because of bad installers and application conflicts. Applications that rely on expensive hardware requirements to function properly and are therefore hard, if not impossible, to deploy with common desktop or application virtualization technologies. Scense however has no problem to guarantee access to these applications.
The combination of Scense Easy Delivery, Scense Adaptive Installer and the Scense runtime system prepares, delivers and manages medical applications on demand and in real time. End users will get access to medical applications whenever needed, on any device and on any location in a way that is most effective for the application in play. Application conflicts are addressed on the fly and the user’s context is taken into account to guarantee reliable, secure and user friendly application access.
Workstation & workplace sharing
This is a common issue in hospitals and one of the most complex to solve. Medical doctors, nurses and other staff sharing the same workplace often use different applications and require different resources. This all too often leads to software malfunctions and, ultimately, to system unavailability. Scense supports workplace sharing while providing the right content for each employee.
Scense provides a platform, capable of maintaining multiple user profiles on one hardware device and eliminating any software incompatibilities. Applications can be distributed by location, user identity and/or time. This allows for transparent and secure application delivery. An extended feature is Scense Live Profiles, enabling employees to switch workstations swiftly and access their applications and resources without consequences for global system availability or reliability.
Secure access to medical IT resources, anywhere
In contrast with regular corporate application environments, applications in hospitals need to be available on locations IT has no unlimited access to, like operating rooms. Also, healthcare organizations allow medical personnel to use mobile devices like iPads and other tablets to access medical applications and information. Application access at home is also important aspect because of medical doctors being on call. All requirements that can easily be met by using Scense.
Scense’s architecture is not limited by the boundaries set by the healthcare organization’s network. Resources are delivered to end users on any location and device via the Internet, even at public places or at home. The support of secure protocols and real time management capabilities (based on the users context) guarantee secure an reliable access to these resources. As an example, access to applications or information can be restricted to certain area’s or to devices that meet security standards.
The Invisible force
Desktops should be taken for granted by the people who use them. They should just work, and you should not be thinking about this technology even though you might be using it all day. This is particularly true in healthcare organizations.
IT-departments in healthcare organizations know that when doctors and nurses can keep their minds on the patients, optimal care is provided, and they will happily be this invisible force in the background that makes sure that the medical staff can excel.
