The sky is no longer the limit. Now, it’s the stars.

An often over-looked section of the healthcare providers who access EMRs are Mac users. Not leaving anyone behind, HCA has for some time been testing the functionality of the Citrix XenApp program ( provided free via download from Citrix itself ) for use with HCA’s own Virtual Desktop Interface, or VDI, in  a Mac environment. 

This historically productive user group can share in the same access to HCA systems for Remote viewing of medical records information,  signing charts, viewing radiology images, and obtaining demographic info. The look will be identical to what they see in their offices, at the facility, and on Windows-based computers.

GE recently started a pilot program giving a choice to their employees between Windows and Mac. With enterprise companies starting to embrace Apple products and the Mac operating system ( OS X ),  the options are rapidly expanding.  Ironically, Apples’ desktop wallpaper for OS X  is from outer space.
