Dell today at HIMSS 2016 unveiled new research and technology solutions to advance the healthcare industry toward patient-centered, information-driven healthcare. New insights from the Dell Global Technology Adoption Index (GTAI) reveal how healthcare organizations are using cloud, mobility, security and big data as well as the benefits and barriers to these technologies.

“Dell works to deliver end-to-end capabilities that healthcare organizations need to operate as efficiently and effectively as possible, solve critical problems, enhance patient care and unleash innovation,” said John Mullen, vice president and general manager of Central Region Sales, North America Commercial at Dell. “At HIMSS, we will put a spotlight on important trends affecting the industry and how we are building open, capable and affordable future-ready infrastructures that allow customers to address demands of tomorrow.”

Michael Dell, chairman and CEO of Dell, will help kick off HIMSS 2016 at Monday’s opening keynote. Mark Barner, CEO of Ascension Information Services (AIS) and SVP and CIO for Ascension, the largest non-profit health system in the country, will join Mr. Dell on stage to discuss the importance of IT to the future of healthcare, as well as Dell’s continued focus on working closely with customers like Ascension to accelerate innovation and improve care.

To further reinforce Dell’s commitment to healthcare, Dell today also introduced an all-new medical monitor designed specifically for health professionals and announced new genomic research enhancements to its more than 11 billion image and growing Dell Cloud Clinical

Dell Global Technology Adoption Index

Today, Dell shared the second chapter of the GTAI findings focused specifically on how mid-market healthcare organizations globally perceive, plan for and use key technologies including cloud, mobility, security and big data. The first chapter, released late last year, highlighted several global findings from overall respondents comprised of business and IT decision makers from multiple industries worldwide.

The GTAI chapter two results found that healthcare organizations have different expectationsof their technology investments than the overall survey respondents. While healthcare decision makers expect their technologies to deliver improved efficiency (55 percent), better security (53 percent) and greater employee productivity (50 percent), overall survey respondents see cost savings as a top expected benefit. Cost savings, however, ranked fifth on healthcare teams’ list of IT expectations (44 percent), behind better operational business processes (46 percent).

Additionally, the Dell GTAI chapter two also uncovered the following insights:

  • Healthcare organizations globally are expanding their use private on-premises cloud (up to 46 percent in 2015 from 42 percent in 2014) and public cloud (up to 30 percent in 2015from 25 percent in 2014). Also, use of cloud-based applications is up to 41 percent in 2015 from 25 percent in 2014.
  • When approaching a mobility strategy, healthcare organizations are busy reacting to internal needs with no clear overarching mission (47 percent) versus having a strategic approach (37 percent). This 10-point discrepancy is higher than overall respondents who cited 45 percent are reacting to internal needs while 41 percent have a strategic approach to their mobility program.
  • Healthcare organizations are beginning to see security as both a competitive advantage (up to 21 percent in 2015 from 18 percent in 2014) and as meeting compliance requirements (up to 20 percent in 2015 from 17 percent in 2014). With these increases, the same organizations reported a decline in thinking about security as only a means to protecting the organization (down to 47 percent in 2015 from 55 percent in 2014).
  • Regarding big data, a growing number of healthcare organizations are unsure how to approach it, although they believe big data is relevant (up to 48 percent in 2015 from 41 percent in 2014). This number is slightly higher than the overall study findings, which cite 44 percent of organizations generally aren’t sure how to approach big data.

World’s No. 1 monitor brand provider introduces new monitor purpose-built for healthcare

Joining the Dell Medical Review 24 Monitor MR2416, first announced in November 2015, the Dell Medical Review 22 Monitor MR2217 is the newest monitor purpose-built for healthcare with Dell’s world-class service and support. The MR2217 is calibrated to the Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) part 14 standard grayscale, allowing healthcare professionals to review accurate, consistent images at the point of care, and the backlight stabilization control maintains the calibration throughout its lifecycle enabling accurate review of medical images. The hospital-grade IEC60601-1 power supply makes the monitor ideal for use near patients, as does the extended 60-degree swivel for image sharing and space constrained environments.

The Dell Medical Review Monitor MR2217 is easily cleanable to be consistent with infection control protocols. With a light colored exterior designed to detect blood stains and contaminants, the monitor’s smooth, vent-less design also minimizes dirt trapping. For medical environments with space constraints, this monitor is compact enough with a 21.5-inch viewing area, 16:9 aspect ratio to fit on a work station on wheels and a unique cable clip to prevent loose cables. Dell offers three years of Advanced Exchange Service to minimize downtime and IT support.

“Every day, healthcare IT decision makers face the choice of balancing the need to provide exceptional patient care with balancing limited budgets and strict IT compliance standards,” Bert Park, vice president, Dell Software & Peripherals said. “As the number one monitor brand worldwide, we’re bringing our innovation and expertise to the medical monitor market by introduces new monitor purpose-built for healthcare creating a line of accessible, DICOM-calibrated monitors, purpose-built to address healthcare needs.”
