Communicate and collaborate more effectively with care teams and patients
With Microsoft and partner solutions on-premises, in the cloud, or hybrid scenarios, health workers can collaborate efficiently and effectively with each other inside and outside your organization, and with patients and citizens. Interoperable and open, these solutions connect devices, data, systems, and processes to help people collaborate in real time and get the information they need, when they need it.
Improve quality of care with enhanced collaboration and organizational productivity tools
By connecting systems, devices, data, and processes with the new Office from Microsoft, you can help your Health organization get the information they need to provide better and safer care and services to more patients and citizens in less time and at a lower cost.
Collaborate with colleagues and respond to patients quickly with unlimited access to files
The new Office works across devices and platforms, from smartphones and tablets to desktops and from PCs to Macs, and even on popular browsers. Health professionals can share and collaborate on documents from virtually anywhere, regardless of whether they’re using a PC, Mac, or mobile phone. By syncing folders between a local computer and the cloud using SkyDrive, health professionals can access important files anywhere and even work together on them in real time.
Stay connected from virtually anywhere with rich conferencing tools to improve Health team communications
The new Office offers voice and video calls, online meetings, presence and instant messaging – plus high-definition, multi-party videoconferencing — in one easy-to-use client. Microsoft Lync is designed to meet the needs of mobile and geographically distributed teams by supporting variety of devices including Windows, iOS, and Android devices; and Lync automatically adapts to network conditions.
Provide Teleheath access to patients across demographics/geographies for enhanced patient care and reduce travel between affiliated health centers
Patients and caregivers can communicate more efficiently before, after, and between office visits with Microsoft Lync. This can include remote consultations, delivery of patient education, post-treatment counseling, and virtual group sessions. Lync uses encryption to help secure and track information exchanged between doctors, family members, the care team, and government agencies according to the latest regulations.
Benefit from the cost-savings and efficiency of cloud solutions
Microsoft is the only company that allows Health organizations the flexibility of cloud, on-premises, and hybrid deployments of its software. For example, with Microsoft, a health organization can use the cloud for specific scenarios that don’t require stringent policy management alongside a hybrid of cloud and on-premises solutions, with the option to keep the rest of their software and infrastructure on-premises according to their business requirements. All of these scenarios can be managed through a single pane of glass to reduce operational costs and resources.
Privacy practices and support for global standards for superior IT control and the peace-of-mind you need.
The new Office is the first and only major cloud-based platform to offer leading information privacy and security standards that help Health customers achieve compliance with the European Commission’s stringent Data Protection Directive, and the U.S.–mandated Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). Microsoft’s online services include enterprise-grade data loss prevention, built-in malware and integrated compliance functionality. With this risk-based, multi-dimensional approach, privacy practices that support global standards and world-class datacenters, you get the reliability, security features, and IT controls you need.
