IT Partners with Docs on BYOD
Another plus with Green Clinic’s Dell-enabled environment is the opportunity to empower clinicians and physicians to use their preferred tablets and smartphones without restrictions. As a result, Green Clinic’s IT team partners with physicians by recommending BYOD strategies while ensuring that any personal laptops are managed with the help of the KACE appliances. In the future, Green Clinic plans to add Dell’s KACE mobile device management solution to streamline management of all mobile devices.
Streamlined HIPAA Compliance and Improved Security
Dell’s end-to-end solutions have helped Green Clinic streamline data security and HIPAA compliance to safeguard its doctors from being exposed to the risk of financial penalties. To ensure that protected health information is secure at all times, Green Clinic installed Dell SonicWALL firewalls to lockdown its network connecting the clinic and satellite sites while optimizing bandwidth, which is especially important in rural areas with low-bandwidth connections. Data also is automatically encrypted on all hard drives, and in transmission, in keeping with compliance requirements.To further protect critical systems and patient data, Green Clinic deployed Dell SecureWorks’ Managed Intrusion Prevention Service (IPS), which alerts and blocks an organization’s network from potential cyber-attacks. Dell’s managed security offering also meets some of the key HIPAA compliance regulations, which is crucial since a healthcare organization could face up to $1.5 million in regulatory fines if patient data were to become compromised or stolen.
