Diagnosing Which Devices Provide More for Healthcare

The right device can make you a healthcare IT hero by allowing clinicians and staff to work smarter, not harder. For instance, when you equip users with rich-client devices instead of zero-client devices, you empower them to transcribe exam notes up to 48 percent faster! This was one of the results we saw when we assessed the performance of rich-client devices, including a tablet and an all-in-one device—a popular option in healthcare today—against a zero client for performing common healthcare tasks. The devices we examined were:

  • A Lenovo® ThinkCentre® M900z all-in-one device powered by an Intel® Core i5-6500 processor with Intel® vPro technology
  • A Lenovo® ThinkPad® X1 Tablet powered by an Intel Core m7-6Y75 processor with Intel vPro technology
  • A zero client with a virtualized desktop hosted on a server running Windows® MultiPoint® Server 2012
