Looking to enhance mobile productivity and deliver more collaborative care, the endpoint strategy team at Visiting Nurse Association (VNA) California has chosen Dell Venue* 11 Pro 2 in 1 devices powered by the Intel® Core™ i5 vPro™ processor for its mobile workforce of visiting nurses, physical therapists, social workers, chaplains, and other clinical professionals. Key criteria included enterpris...e-class management and security, robust performance, excellent support for clinical applications, and ease of use for VNA California’s diverse users.
“We wanted to get the most capability for the dollar, and that was the Dell Venue,” says Gerrard Gier, VNA California’s Gier director of IT. “The 2 in 1 is very mobile, but you’ve also got the full keyboard, which helps with our user transition from a laptop to a tablet. The Microsoft management and security software is enterprise-proven. We like the native security and management potential that Intel® vPro™ technology gives you in addition. And the size was perfect—the device fits right in your lap as you’re sitting with the patient.”
Gier says the 2 in 1 devices with Intel Core vPro processors help VNA California improve mobile productivity, collaboration, quality of care, employee satisfaction, and system-wide efficiency. “These devices are lighter and easier to carry around, and they create less of a barrier between client and clinician,” he says. “They provide the clinician with a more responsive experience than our previous point-of-care devices. We’re planning to utilize telehealth and video chat, which will enhance collaboration.”
