REDMOND, Wash. — April

, 2012 — By connecting data, processes and devices, intelligent systems can help health providers offer better care and outcomes to patients. Hospitals, clinics and health organizations across the industry can now centralize their records in the cloud, offering greater flexibility in how and where patient care and data is managed.

Microsoft delivers health solutions that support the way people want to live and work. Tailored to the specific needs and roles of users, health solutions built using Windows Embedded technology give patients and medical staff real-time access to relevant applications, information and services that facilitate collaboration and enhance communication.

South Jersey Healthcare, a nonprofit healthcare system, chose Windows Embedded Standard to automate its medication distribution service and help protect patient privacy and data security. The updated solution improved efficiency by moving patient and medication records to the cloud, enabling availability of information virtually anytime, anywhere.

also used Windows Embedded Standard to personalize the user experience by centralizing data from its 12 clinics in one location, simplifying the way the clinics shared information with one another. Staff members across each clinic now have real-time access to patient data, which means they can manage charts for multiple providers all at once, in one convenient place.

Moving health records to the cloud is only one example of how Windows Embedded can help health and medical organizations build stronger relationships with patients. See in the slide show how Windows Embedded technologies, Microsoft SQL Server, HealthVault, .NET Framework and other Microsoft products come together to help safeguard important data, lower operational costs and increase staff productivity for the medical industry.
