Hillcrest Family Health Center, a network of 12 family and specialty medicine clinics, needed a better way to manage hundreds of computing devices. An Electronic Health Record system required constant patches and fixes, making support costly and time consuming. Roby Solutions, a local systems integrator, proposed a solution based on Wyse thin clients running Windows Embedded Standard to connect to Windows Server 2008 R2 running Microsoft Hyper-V Virtualization. Now IT resources are centralized for easier management; users can connect to their personalized, dedicated desktop from anywhere; and Hillcrest has reduced bandwidth infrastructure cost by approximately 35 percent.
