Workplace Anywhere helps Carea improving productivity and enhancing patient care

"Fujitsu Workplace Anywhere runs reliably and quickly and improves the efficiency of both nursing and finances. It goes hand in hand with the idea of moving to open interfaces."

Matti Ahola CIO, Carea

Fujitsu Workplace Anywhere allows Carea’s users to access personalized workspaces securely from any device reducing costs and increasing productivity.

The customer

In Finland, local municipalities are responsible for providing social and health services to citizens. These municipalities are also part of larger federations which handle emergency services and special care. Carea is one such federation and its member municipalities are Hamina, Kotka, Kouvola, Miehikkälä, Pyhtää and Virolahti. It provides social and health services for 174,000 citizens and employs 2,100 professionals.

The challenge

Carea wanted to upgrade its old Windows XP desktops for an improved user experience and a more flexible working environment that would allow users to access patient records securely from any device.

The solution

It deployed Fujitsu Workplace Anywhere, a Citrix based virtual client services solution that makes each of the 1,600 users’ desktops available remotely and introduces the ability to transfer a single session on the move.

The benefit

  • Provides a better user experience, which improves productivity
  • Ten second login process reduces waiting time for medical workers, enhancing patient care
  • Enables medical professionals to have their customized desktop follow them between devices and locations
  • Service requests reduced by 80 percent, helping lower costs
  • Sensitive patient data is never at risk of exposure
