CUPERTINO, Calif., June 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Workspot, the leader in next-generation virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), today announced that Houston Eye Associates (HEA) is using Workspot VDI 2.0 in a hybrid environment to improve patient care. HEA is now providing doctors with high-speed access to applications in every exam room across its 29 locations, while also supporting growth of its Optometrist Affiliate program with Workspot deployed apps running on Microsoft Azure.

Built from the ground up as a cloud-native, VDI-as-a-service solution, Workspot VDI is transforming how healthcare providers securely access desktops, applications and data. Workspot is the only end user computing solution that simultaneously delivers virtual desktops and apps from Azure and on-premises, using a single management console for ultimate simplicity.

Workspot provides HEA with the IT infrastructure the organization needs to move into the future by addressing:

  • Unique workflow requirements: HEA needed a specialized client to support its established workflow. Because none of the HEA apps are single sign-on, the PCs and apps both use a service account. Staff members can now log into PCs in exam rooms with a service account based on the room.
  • Flexible delivery: HEA needed Workspot to deliver virtual Windows applications from its on-premises converged infrastructure. However, HEA also has a cloud strategy; with Workspot they can deliver apps and desktops from both on-premises and from Azure, thereby future-proofing the app delivery solution.
  • Connectivity issues: HEA staff discovered that all its problems with connecting to printers and external USB devices disappeared instantly once Workspot was implemented.

Tom Merkle, director of IT, Houston Eye Associates, said: “With Workspot, I don’t have to worry about the complexity that other VDI providers create. I just set up a few servers to host the applications, and Workspot handles the rest. As a result, the speed of our systems increased dramatically, saving each doctor 30 to 60 minutes per day of wasted time. That’s the difference between seeing patients on time and being an hour behind.”

Jimmy Chang, vice president of products and alliances at Workspot, said: “Since deploying Workspot, Houston Eye’s doctors now have more time to focus on patients. They also have time to see additional patients throughout the day. Apps should work for you, not the other way around. Our turnkey solutions for next-generation end user computing make VDI and DaaS insanely simple for healthcare customers.”
