Modern Infrastructure for a Better Healthcare IT Experience

March 8, 2024 | min

Nutanix, a leader in hybrid multicloud, and Citrix continue to strengthen their partnership to support you in building a simple, secure, and flexible infrastructure for your healthcare environment. From large healthcare systems to pharmaceutical research facilities and everything in between, running Citrix DaaS / VDI on the Nutanix Cloud Platform (NCP) solution enhances security, simplifies operations, and delivers an excellent clinician and end-user experience. This synergy allows you to focus on what truly matters — patient care.

In the ever-evolving landscape of healthcare IT, Nutanix ensures your healthcare organization will be ready for every challenge. Explore the benefits of building a Nutanix and Citrix technology stack for your healthcare organization.

Enhanced security

Nutanix and Citrix can help prevent data theft and loss from ransomware and malware while adhering to regulatory, compliance, and data privacy requirements including HIPAA, HITECH, and GDPR.

Nutanix Cloud Platform(NCP) is hardened by design, with advanced security features such as flexible encryption and robust protection against malware and ransomware. These features complement each other and strengthen the granular security controls of Citrix secure access solutions. Nutanix not only helps prevent the spread of malware and ransomware but also mitigates data loss and theft through comprehensive access controls and data encryption measures.

Combined with a unified secure access solution from Citrix, healthcare organizations can accelerate digital transformation and modernize IT with a cloud-delivered security stack based on zero trust. NCP is verified as Citrix Ready, which means it has undergone a rigorous validation process to provide seamless integration with Citrix. Nutanix also simplifies datacenter infrastructure by integrating server and storage resources into a turnkey appliance that is deployed quickly, ready to run Citrix at scale.

Simplified operations

Healthcare organizations are often spread across multiple hospitals, clinics, and ambulatory sites with varying infrastructure needs that stretch IT resources. With Nutanix and Citrix, you can provide consistent access to all applications and data and have flexibility in supporting a varying number of clinicians without increasing complexity. The same IT team that manages desktops and apps can also easily manage servers, storage, and virtualization.

Whether you’re operating in a private, public, or hybrid multicloud, the combination of Nutanix and Citrix allows centralized management to support more end users without adding operational complexity.

Deploying faster and delivering a consistent experience

In EUC deployments, the clinician experience is critical — considering that poor user experience leads to less time providing patient care. As emerging hybrid workstyles evolve and adapt there is continuing demand for telehealth and work-from-anywhere capabilities, requiring maximum flexibility and faster agility from IT. With Nutanix and Citrix, you can fluidly switch from a traditional on-premises environment to a hybrid remote environment and back again with ease and in a fraction of time and effort.

Nutanix and Citrix help IT staff provide consistent performance from hundreds to thousands of end users. Users benefit from a responsive system that meets their needs, enabling them to provide greater patient care with the speed and efficiency they expect.
