Prescribe Modern Mobile PCs for Modern Healthcare
Devices running Windows 10 and powered by 7th generation Intel Core processors enhance productivity and usability for healthcare workers.
Over the next several years, most healthcare organizations will migrate to the Windows 10 operating system. Upgrading to a new Windows operating system is a common time for organizations to adopt new device standards and refresh current devices to take advantage of the updated operating system’s full capabilities. Organizations evaluating today’s device landscape will be pleased to find that there are many suitable new devices across a range of form factors and performance levels. These modern devices—powered by 7th generation Intel® Core™ processors—promise performance gains that can improve productivity for health workers when compared to older devices. This comes at a perfect time for healthcare, because organizations transitioning to electronic medical records (EMRs) and other digital clinical applications are looking for ways to provide anytime, anywhere access to mission-critical applications and data.
At Prowess Consulting, we wanted to determine how much impact modern devices could have in improving productivity for a healthcare organization. To do this, we compared the time to complete several common tasks across four devices: a 2-in-1 and a laptop with 7th generation Intel Core processors, and two 2-in-1 devices with 5th and 4th generation Intel Core processors. We selected these devices because they offer the functionality and portability needed by modern, mobile healthcare workers.
