Novarad Showcases Updated VDI and VNA Storyboarding at HIMSS 2016

Novarad exhibited its latest advancements in virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) at the Healthcare Information and Management System (HIMSS) conference and exhibition, along with California-based technology company, Sphere 3D, Corp.

“We want practitioners to leave with actionable recommendations for changing their operations,” said Paul Shumway, senior vice president of Novarad. “Being independently owned, we’re in a position to listen to providers and implement the things they ask for into our products, which is why we’re offering new software licensing in our NovaGlass VDI, and patient storyboarding into the Universal Viewer.”

Novarad’s VDI, NovaGlass, now includes Remote Desktop Session Host (RDSH) from the same server as the virtual desktop. NovaGlass was built not only to virtualize any desktop environment or application, but to increase speed and performance while doing so. The application is scalable and can handle anywhere from a few to a few thousand users.

Additionally, as part of its vendor neutral archive, Novarad’s Universal Viewer now includes patient storyboarding, or the ability for a user to see all of a patient’s details, such as the treatment they previously received and what he or she should be expecting as the next step in their care continuum. This aspect of the Universal Viewer enables a greater understanding of a patient’s care needs and helps the clinician to tell a full story.

Sphere 3D, an important partner, exhibited in the Novarad HIMSS booth for the first time, and exhibited some of its recently announced new product families, including the latest enhancements to its Glassware 2.0 containerization technology and V3 VDI solutions. “Novarad shares our view that a vertical based cloud computing approach is a must for in the healthcare industry,” said Peter Bookman, Global Strategist at Sphere 3D said, “With that in mind, together we are introducing new levels of flexibility in virtualization that can drive healthcare IT transformation. Healthcare facilities that are seeking to quickly modernize their business applications and mobilize their workforces will truly be surprised with the simplicity and cost structure of our combined solutions.”
