IT Intelligence Bulletin (HG Insights) — Leveraging solutions from Citrix Systems, Inc., WellSpan Health has created an intelligent digital workspace through which more than 1,500 doctors and advanced clinicians across eight hospitals can access the applications and information they need to do their jobs – anywhere, anytime, in a simple, secure and reliable way.

WellSpan Health is an integrated health system that serves the communities of central Pennsylvania and northern Maryland. “At WellSpan, we realize that time is precious and every second counts,” said Mick Murphy, Vice President and Chief Technology Officer, WellSpan Health. “That’s why we are committed to providing our doctors and clinicians with innovative solutions that enable them to make intelligent decisions in real-time and deliver optimal outcomes for the patients they serve.”

On any given day, the average employee spends more than 20% of their time searching for information and 25 percent more completing administrative tasks. For doctors and clinicians, that’s time not spent with patients. That’s why WellSpan has implemented digital workspace solutions from Citrix, said Murphy.
