Case Study: Mid Coast Hospital Finds Virtual Desktop Relief with Liquidware Solutions

Posted on

Mid Coast Hospital is a full service, 92-bed, independent, not-forprofit hospital governed by a community Board of Directors. The active medical staff includes more than 160 physicians in over 32 primary care and specialty areas. Mid Coast Hospital is accredited by The Joint Commission, and is recognized as a Magnet™ facility by the American Nurses Credentialing Center for exceptional nursing and patient care.

Staff at Mid Coast Hospital in Brunswick, Maine, had been dissatisfied with its desktop performance for some time. Traditional PCs badly supported the clinical applications used by staff and required a lot of support. It also was difficult for physicians to access systems from their home computers, and the infrastructure could not easily accommodate the increasing array of personal devices that staff wanted to use to work remotely. When the hospital began construction on a new urgent care facility, the IT leadership had to decide whether to install traditional, physical PCs or to implement the hospital’s first virtual desktop infrastructure. It opted for nonpersistent virtual desktops using VMware View, Liquidware’s ProfileUnity FlexApp and Atlantis ILIO storage optimization software running on Cisco UCS servers with local storage.
