Acute Trust Reshapes its Remote Workforce to Deliver Better Patient Care
Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust provides hospital-based services from the main sites of Redditch, Kidderminster, and Worcester, which serve the Worcestershire county and surrounding areas. The Trust provides a wide range of essential services to over 580,000 people in Worcestershire and further afield with 6,000 employees and over 800 volunteers.
Challenge: One of the most pivotal challenges faced by the Trust was procuring technology that would securely offer remote access that efficiently supports the needs of both patients and clinical staff.
The Trust needed to replace an aged, out of support Microsoft Unified Access Gateway (UAG) system that would enable medical staff to complete critical activities, from viewing and updating patient records to coding clinical data without being at the hospital.
Approach: Altiatech recommended Unify Workspace as the solution to optimise and securely streamline the workflow of their clinical staff. Delivered as a managed service for the Trust, Unify Workspace offers a cost-effective, feature-rich application and desktop-as-a-service solution. Unify Workspace provides the Trust with everything they need to achieve secure remote access and mobility with significant cost savings.
