Providence Health and Services Oregon Region is a big believer in technology. In fact, it was an early adopter of online medical records, which have helped it manage its growth without adding personnel. To take productivity to the next level, Providence is now using PCs with Intel® Core™ i5 vPro™ processors. Focusing first on patch compliance, Providence was able to increase six-hour compliance by 17 percent—making the client environment more robust, improving IT’s efficiency, and helping users avoid morning-after delays caused by patch failures.
“The story here is about increasing patch efficiencies and productivity and decreasing downtime,” explained Lee Kriebaum, manager of IT and engineering for Providence Health and Services Oregon Region. “We need technology that gives us the capability to do things programmatically and automatically, without being physically present at each location.”
