Solution Brief

Secure, Cost-Effective Healthcare VDI

DaaS Deployment (Desktop-as-a-Service)

What you'll need

Virtual desktops are delivered to any device via the Internet, providing the benefits of VDI, plus:

  • Faster, less costly implementation & ongoing cost reduction
  • Predictable OPEX cost structure
  • Immediate return on investment
  • Simplified management
  • Rapid, cost-effective scaling
  • Simple, economic pilots
  • ViewSonic partner NaviSite further offers accelerated graphics for cloud-based delivery access to high-resolution imagery and enhanced compute resources, extending virtualization capabilities to those performing advanced imagery analysis and diagnosis.

In addition to being costly to manage and maintain, traditional desktops expose healthcare data to considerable vulnerability. Shared nursing stations, reception or check-in terminals at unsecured windows and desks, and doctors carrying laptops with them everywhere all pose a risk of patient data loss. On-premise VDI offers greater data security and reduced computing costs, however its complexity, staffing requirements and implementation costs can be prohibitively high for many healthcare organizations.


Cloud-hosted desktops, or Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS), offers a less costly and easier-to-manage means of achieving the benefits of VDI – without the added operational, IT and CAPEX demands often incurred with other digital security measures. With DaaS, healthcare organizations purchase VDI back-end services from a third-party provider on a subscription basis, including data storage, backup, security, and upgrades. Virtual desktops are then delivered via the Internet for secure, anytime/anywhere access to critical applications and patient files. Because data and apps never leave the data center facilities, security is ensured, allowing healthcare groups to incorporate digital assets into their compliance and resiliency strategies.

The value, efficiency, and reliability of DaaS can be further enhanced by the use of endpoint clients purpose-built to support desktop virtualization, such as ViewSonic’s discrete thin and zero clients, integrated thin and zero client displays, and smart display clients, which have been optimized for faster performance, lower power consumption, and longer product lifespan.
