Technology shouldn’t be a barrier to care. We needed to provide secure and convenient access to key systems, whether our employees are in the hospital itself or working remotely. By making sure our employees can work effectively and recharge on their days off, we can ultimately improve patient care. 


Modern Technologies Are Driving New Healthcare Possibilities 

The pandemic forever altered the healthcare industry. Never have more providers, care teams, and staff relied on digital technologies to communicate, diagnose, treat, and stand-up new services at a moment’s notice. 

COVID-19 also challenged traditional assumptions and barriers to healthcare digitization. Digital initiatives that what once took hospitals and healthcare systems years of planning and implementation suddenly took weeks, or even days, to execute. With a focus on agility and care continuity, healthcare organizations adapted swiftly to a global crisis and became heroes in the making. 

For over twenty years, VMware has partnered with healthcare organizations to transform patient care by transforming IT infrastructure and operations. As the IT platform of choice for healthcare providers, including 9 of the top 10 largest health systems worldwide, VMware’s support for any cloud, any app, and any device enables healthcare IT (HIT) to safely accelerate digital strategies while driving operational excellence and security at scale. 

VMware Digital Foundation for Healthcare 

Healthcare providers that architect their IT strategy on VMware’s digital foundation can build, run, manage, connect, and protect any app on any cloud on any device, gaining the flexibility needed to achieve real-time connected healthcare across people, data, and systems — while simultaneously improving the cost, quality, and delivery of care.
