Fast and secure access to patient files on the move is just one of the benefits IGEL Technology is demonstrating using thin clients at Smart Healthcare Live in London.

Using IGEL Universal Desktops with integrated smartcard devices, healthcare professionals can securely log into any IGEL device and access patient records in under 10 seconds.

As well as ease of use, IGEL said its thin clients were ideal for healthcare environments because they were secure.

Unlike PCs, the thin clients run from a server-based computing system with all data held centrally and not on the machines themselves, preventing sensitive patient information theft.

The IGEL thin clients are also robust and reliable because they have no moving parts, and are easy to roll out. They can be up and running with just a few simple mouse clicks from a centralized IT team using IGEL's Universal Management Suite software, reducing administration costs by up to 70 percent.

In addition to the healthcare user benefits, IGEL thin clients are also economical and environmentally-friendly with power savings of up to 51% over traditional PCs.

IGEL said it would be using its power calculator at the show to demonstrate how IGEL thin clients could pay for themselves - in power savings alone - over a three to five year period.

In addition to the IGEL Universal Desktop range, IGEL will also be demonstrating its new IGEL one thin client.

The IGEL one is designed for single campus organisations, with up to 250 users, where sophisticated management software is not required.

The IGEL team can be found at Stand M363 at the show in Earls Court, London, from June 9-10.
