Executive Summary

RehabCare Group provides rehabilitation program management services for more than 1,200 facilities across the United States. The three IT staffers in the company's Client Technology Services group found it challenging to efficiently manage its 150 applications and 2,500 desktop and laptop computers, while supporting a large mobile work force. By switching to virtualization using Microsoft Application Virtualization and System Center Configuration Manager, RehabCare cut the time for large-scale deployments of new applications from weeks to less than one day, delivered application updates 80 percent faster for a savings of 1,200 IT staff hours per year, improved asset tracking, and enhanced reliability and service for widely dispersed employees. Just as important, it increased end-user productivity, freeing therapists to focus on patient care instead of software installations.
