Healthcare Tech Outlook | Monday, July 22, 2019

The healthcare industry requires features that increase productivity, and tools that support better communication and collaboration, which are all critical to healthcare delivery.

FREMONT, CA: Healthcare is swiftly making a shift from Windows 7 to Windows 10 with security being the prime motivator for the drive. All the outdated operating systems will be susceptible to malware, hacks, viruses, and other potentially threatening flaws in security.

Windows 10 has better security measures and tools to counter the ransomware like a whitelist capability that determines which apps can change and access files. It also supports an anti-malware program that scans, isolates, and eliminates malware. Windows 10 provides cloud-based service for dealing with security threats in Windows 10 computers.

Other benefits come along with the shift to Windows 10, such as improved speed and efficiency, features that increase productivity and tools that support better communication and collaboration, which are all critical to healthcare delivery.

Smarter and Immersive Collaboration with Windows 10

Windows 10 has numerous tools for collaboration and smarter browsing. According to Biz Tech, the Microsoft Edge browser is an essential application of Windows 10. Users can annotate web pages with notes or drawings on a touch screen or with the help of keyboard for virtual collaboration. The tightly bound, Cortana digital assistant browsers help users with virtual or immediate schedule-in person meetings and can also send reminders to participants.

Remote desktop connections can also be initiated in Windows 10 machines where a master machine controls slave machines and their resources. Healthcare industry requires and thrives on faster services. Windows 10 files work even faster on the latest devices that can boot in a matter of a few seconds.

Real-Time Communication

In case of emergency, hospitals communications department must interact with staffs, media, patient families, and the community simultaneously while ensuring that transparent communication is maintained across the various channels. Earlier, such an emergency case like an accident with multiple casualties resulted in a flurry of emails where the communication teams often found it challenging to coordinate responses in bulk.

Microsoft has recently announced the latest Teams features that contain advanced messaging features such as message delegation and priority notifications. The features also allow the integration of electronic health for care coordination.
