Gemalto, a company engaged in digital security, and Devon IT, a provider of thin client terminals, have announced a new joint solution to increase patient information security and clinician efficiency within healthcare facilities.
Healthcare providers can now use Gemalto .NET cards to securely log on and begin or resume work at any Devon IT thin client workstation in seconds. The solution helps healthcare organizations increase productivity, reduce IT support costs and comply with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996.
A thin client is a limited-resource computer that acts primarily as a display and input device. It accesses software and data running on a central server instead of locally. Since applications and information are web-enabled, they can be delivered to any device, at any location, over any connection using the Gemalto .NET card for digital security and identity.
