Epic Names VMware RDS Hosted Applications a Target Platform

VMware announced their RDS hosted applications are included in the Epic 2015 Target Platform list. Epic’s Target Platform List assists healthcare organizations in selecting validated architectures and platforms for the delivery of electronic health records (EHRs).

Organizations currently using VMware and Epic can now use VMware’s software-defined data center platform and the VMware Digital Clinical Workspace to host, deliver, monitor, and manage their EHRs from the data center to the point of care, helping to ensure high-quality patient care and improve outcomes at lower costs.

RDS host or remote desktop session host is a server that hosts applications and desktop sessions for remote access.
