Why the health care industry is interested in Citrix

Posted by & filed under News, Specific IT Jobs.

One health care organization is looking to leverage the use of Citrix Systems in its day-to-day activity.

The American health care system is going through a significant amount of change. These widespread adjustments are partly due to President Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act and Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act of 2009. 

Days spent filling out forms on paper and organizing filing cabinets are being replaced with the use of electronic health record (EHR) programs. These shifts have been slow, but in 2014, it appears the adoption of these systems is becoming more widespread.

As a way to create a secure network for patients, hospital executives are looking for information technology professionals with an array of experiences, but Citrix Systems especially.

"There are some really tough technology positions to fill right now, whether they require Android or iOS skills, or those in the very hot security space, or more senior-level architects," Citrix Systems senior director of recruiting Melissa Thompson, told IT Business Edge. "The whole niche of security—there aren't that many people who do it. It is far and away one of the hardest jobs to fill, I don't care what level you're looking at."

Citrix's code is valuable to health care professionals because its ability to virtually display information is valuable to practitioners. If physicians are going to access health information in EHRs, they would like to use a desktop application that provides the most realistic visuals.
