VMware has released a new cloud computing service designed to help healthcare industry clients migrate to a cloud platform, eWeek reports.
VMware’s vCloud for Health Care combines the company’s vCloud and Horizon Suite virtualization tool and intends to give doctors access to information at the point of care in an exam room, Brian T. Horowitz writes.
The new platform also aims to give the information when using care systems in an emergency room, according to the report.
Frank Nydam, VMware health carebusiness development director, told eWeek the company built the system to run a report that tests whether virtual machines comply with Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act standards or PCI standards.
Nydam also told the website vCloud for Health Care aims to help providers convert from the International Classification of Diseases -9 diagnosis code to ICD-10.
