Toshiba’s Digital Products Division (DPD), a division of Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., today announced a full suite of healthcare solutions, which provide the accuracy, efficiency and innovation that healthcare organizations need to deliver the next generation of patient care.
Backed by decades of technology expertise and experience and recognized this month by GDS International as a global thought leader in healthcare, Toshiba empowers healthcare organizations to address today’s challenges with confidence and delivers the right solutions to improve clinical and business performance. For optimizing clinical workflows, enabling telehealth and virtual caregiving, speeding the adoption of electronic medical records (EMRs), facilitating enabling team collaboration or better complying with HIPAA security mandates, Toshiba’s innovative mobile solutions can help healthcare organizations achieve the best outcomes.
“The healthcare industry is in an important transition, becoming increasingly digital and depending on technology more than ever,” said Wesley Smith, director of Healthcare Information Systems, Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., Digital Products Division. “Toshiba’s depth of understanding in the healthcare space and long history of developing high-performance, durable and secure devices has enabled us to develop a complete ecosystem of medical innovations that will enable healthcare organizations to deliver the next generation of outstanding patient care.”
Toshiba provides the expert guidance and customized technology needed to build tailored medical devices that help healthcare organizations meet the growing demands of customers. Toshiba recognizes the needs of each healthcare organization are unique and collaborates with its customers to build custom medical solutions that improve business performance.
Mobile Solutions for a Digital Healthcare Environment
Dependable, high-performance laptops are critical in the medical world, where reliance on electronic health records, e-prescriptions and clinical workflows are helping providers deliver the best possible care. Using Toshiba’s Tecra® Z40 and Portégé® Z30/Z30t laptops and the Portégé® Z10t detachable Ultrabook™, healthcare practitioners are equipped with the quality, speed and durability that they need in a device to deliver point-of-care excellence and improve health outcomes.
Lightweight Toshiba Tablets for Mobile Point-of-Care
Toshiba’s compact, lightweight Windows 8 and Android™ tablets – including the Encore™ and Excite® products – save time, reduce errors and ensure that clinicians always have the most up-to-date information at their fingertips throughout every step of the healthcare delivery process. In addition to providing truly mobile bedside and home care, tablets increase clinician mobility and accessibility. They also help providers quickly access copies of PACS (Picture Archiving and Communication System) images from anywhere with network connectivity.
Cloud Services for Cost-effective Support
Healthcare organizations are often burdened by limited availability of dedicated IT support, as well as physical office space limitations and restrictions on large capital investments. Yet they must also address rising compliance and security requirements. Toshiba’s global enterprise data centers are ready to help healthcare organizations meet today’s challenges head-on. Toshiba’s cloud offering includes a variety of subscription-based software-as-a-service (SaaS) and infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) offerings – all providing on-demand service hosted and managed by Toshiba.
Digital Signage for Better Communication
Toshiba’s expertise with LED televisions and displays are a perfect digital signage solution for healthcare practices – improving the overall satisfaction of patients, hospital guests and visitors. Toshiba TVs and displays enable access to patient treatment plans and other enterprise applications through Internet-connected TVs, streamlining patient check-in, simplifying way-finding, and providing interactive training and healthcare education. Moreover, these advanced solutions deliver information in a highly visual and engaging manner, enhancing user experiences.
