HP Accelerates the Transformation of Healthcare


Digital Health solutions deliver flexibility and efficiency to improve quality of care

PALO ALTO, Calif., HP today announced a new solution portfolio designed to deliver flexibility and efficiency to health organizations.

The new HP Digital Health solutions are based on HP’s extensive portfolio of products, solutions and partnerships. It enables health organizations to accelerate change and innovation, advance operational efficiencies and orchestrate care across the ecosystem. In short, it helps healthcare organizations become Instant-On Enterprises.

“Sweeping regulation and the changing healthcare landscape are encouraging providers to reorganize into care teams that improve coordination and collaboration across the continuum of healthcare settings,” said Scott Lundstrom, group vice president, IDC Health Insights. “HP’s approach to ‘instant-on healthcare’ should help to address and simplify the transition healthcare organizations will need to achieve this level of efficiency.”

The HP Digital Health solution portfolio includes:

* HP Digital Hospital 2.0 – HP Digital Hospital holistically addresses the technology needs of the most complex and critical elements of care delivery for in-patient settings. Now updated to include an expanded solution framework and formal reference architectures, HP Digital Hospital uses technology convergence to create a highly integrated, pervasive, real-time information environment.
* HP Health Solution Center – Located in Plano, Texas, this new facility allows HP and its customers and partners to collaborate in a robust information and communication technology environment. The center enables rich demonstration and evaluation capabilities critical to advancing the development of open, industry-standard healthcare solutions and technologies.
* HP V-Health (Virtual Health Management) – This new solution set focuses on the outpatient and home environment, delivering tools that enable healthcare organizations to link patient “teams” to monitor health and deliver care to patients wherever it is needed.

HP Digital Hospital 2.0 + V-Health Solutions enable care coordination across the healthcare ecosystem, which includes hospitals, ambulatory clinics, rehabilitation centers, nursing homes and physician offices.

“Health organizations today run countless systems, tools and applications that are not connected or integrated,” said Sandeep Johri, vice president, Strategy and Solutions, HP Enterprise Business. “HP’s new end-to-end Digital Health solutions portfolio enables clients to efficiently coordinate care across the extended healthcare community.”

In a world of continuous connectivity, the Instant-On Enterprise embeds technology in everything it does to serve customers, employees, partners, and citizens with whatever they need, instantly. The HP Digital Health solution portfolio provides a clear vision and blueprint of how health organizations can improve operational efficiencies, speed innovations into practice, minimize risk as well as improve quality of care.

HP is participating in HIMSS 2011 in Orlando, Fla., Feb. 21-24, and will hold demonstrations in booth 731.
