PrinterLogic and IGEL Enable Healthcare Organizations to Deliver Better Patient Outcomes
Healthcare professionals need to print effortlessly and reliably to nearby or appropriate printers within virtual environments, and PrinterLogic and IGEL can help make that an easy, reliable process—all while efficiently maintaining the protection of confidential patient information.

Many organizations have turned to virtualizing user endpoints to help reduce capital and operational expenses while increasing security. This is especially true within healthcare, where hospitals, clinics, and urgent care centers seek to offer the best possible patient outcomes while adhering to a variety of mandated patient security and information privacy requirements.

With the movement of desktops and applications into the secure data center or cloud, the need for reliable printing of documents, some very sensitive in nature, remains a constant that can be challenging when desktops are virtual but the printing process remains physical. Directing print jobs to the correct printer with the correct physical access rights in the correct location while ensuring compliance with key healthcare mandates like the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Healthcare Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) is critical.

Healthcare IT needs to keep pace with these requirements and the ongoing printing demands of healthcare. Medical professionals need to print effortlessly and reliably to nearby or appropriate printers within virtual environments, and PrinterLogic and IGEL can help make that an easy, reliable process—all while efficiently maintaining the protection of confidential patient information. By combining PrinterLogic’s enterprise print management software with centrally managed direct IP printing and IGEL’s software-defined thin client endpoint management, healthcare organizations can:

  • Reduce capital and operational costs
  • Support virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) and electronic medical records (EMR) systems effectively
  • Centralize and simplify print management
  • Add an essential layer of security from the target printer all the way to the network edge

Revolutionizing IT Support

In recent years, the demand for real-time remediation solutions has been on the rise as organizations seek to streamline their support operations and improve customer satisfaction. Real-time remediation solutions are designed to help IT support teams quickly identify and resolve user issues by automating common troubleshooting tasks and providing actionable insights. Another reason for the rise in demand is the massive shift to work from anywhere that has occurred post COVID-19. According to Gartner, Inc. a research and advisory firm, it is predicted that work from anywhere will continue to rise. By year-end 2023, 48% of knowledge workers will be working hybrid and fully remote, up from 27% in 2019, with 39% of those working hybrid, up from 12% in 2020.

Hybrid is no longer just an employee perk but an employee expectation, challenging employers to create a human-centric approach to “hybrid.” However, there is no sign of a decline in hybrid work. According to a Gartner, Inc. Hybrid Work Employee Survey, 74% of hybrid or remote employees say their expectations for working flexibly have increased. Only 4% of current hybrid or remote employees have a preference for an on-site arrangement. This hybrid working shift creates a challenge for IT admins to have the ability to monitor and remediate remote endpoints, and this is where real-time remediation solutions come in. This whitepaper will examine the current market for real-time remediation solutions, including key trends, challenges, and opportunities.

Get a Grip on Your Local IT with Edge Computing
Edge computing provides a reliable, easy-to-manage, and affordable infrastructure for your remote locations. New technologies are constantly changing the IT landscape. These developments force organizations to critically review their technical architecture. This is particularly true for businesses with remote locations. In this white paper, you will learn what edge computing is, how it helps you modernize your infrastructure, and how it enables you to get a grip on your remote IT resources.

Edge computing provides a reliable, easy-to-manage, and affordable infrastructure for your remote locations.

New technologies, such as the Internet of Things (IoT), are changing the IT landscape. IoT deployments enable businesses to make more intelligent decisions, help streamline business processes, and improve the customer experience. These developments force organizations to critically review their technical architecture. This is particularly true for businesses with various remote locations. For these organizations, IoT technology requires local data processing, as direct-to-cloud communication may not be reliable or fast enough to process vast amounts of time-sensitive data. Therefore, the local IT infrastructure is becoming just as critical as the IT resources located at central locations or in the data center.

Unfortunately, the resiliency, scalability, security, and availability at central locations do not inherently exist remotely. In addition, remote locations often lack skilled IT staff.

To innovate, local infrastructures need to evolve to match the criticality of the new workloads.

Regardless of size, businesses need a solid and simple infrastructure that is scalable and easy to manage, both remotely and locally.

Edge computing can make this happen. In this white paper, you will learn what edge computing is, how it helps you modernize your infrastructure, and how it enables you to get a grip on your remote IT resources.

What is Edge Computing?

Edge computing is a physical computing infrastructure intentionally located outside the four walls of the data center. Therefore, storage compute resources can be placed where they are needed.

Running on a small hardware footprint, an edge computing infrastructure collects and processes vast quantities of data, which can then be uploaded to a centralized data center or the cloud. Edge computing acts as a high-performance bridge from local compute to both private and public clouds.
