2013 marks the third consecutive year that Dell has ranked No. 1 in the healthcare rankings from leading industry analyst firm Gartner[1]. Gartner bases these rankings on total annual Global Information Technology revenue and Dell’s number one position for healthcare services revenue has helped solidify our top overall ranking. We believe information is the foundation on which healthcare will move forward. We continue to invest in our healthcare capabilities and believe this will be an attractive area of growth going forward. We are committed to helping create a connected, information-driven healthcare ecosystem to streamline administration, reduce costs, enhance patient care, and ultimately deliver precision medicine. More than 2,000 hospitals and 30,000 physicians worldwide rely on Dell for IT support, benefiting from Dell’s full-service, end-to-end IT solutions. More than 13,000 Dell team members worldwide work with healthcare organizations to affordably and effectively improve business processes, enhance access to and gain insights from their data, and meet complex healthcare regulations with data security solutions. Dell’s approach to information-driven healthcare connects people to the right technologies and processes to transform the way healthcare is delivered. 

We have a long history of providing broad capabilities for our customers in this space, including electronic medical records (EMR) cloud and disaster recovery services, cloud clinical archiving, mobility solutions and tools to support personalized medicine. Dell healthcare solutions offer industry leading, end-to-end security solutions that maintain accessibility for caregivers. Dell SecureWorks works with hospitals and medical facilities of all types and sizes, with solutions that work well with most major clinical applications. With our unique blend of hardware, software, services and partners, we focus on protecting patient data whether that data is residing in a data center, or on an end user device such as a laptop or tablet. 

With strong customer momentum and numerous strategic alliances for our cloud-based medical image archive platform in particular, we have been recognized as the largest healthcare cloud computing provider in the industry. The Dell Cloud Clinical Archive is managing more than 85 million clinical studies and more than 6 billion diagnostic imaging objects, and supporting more than 800 clinical sites in the industry’s largest vendor-neutral hybrid cloud for medical imaging. Another solution, Dell’s Mobile Clinical Computing Solution (MCC) enables clinicians to securely access applications and data anywhere from nearly any device. Session mobility and persistence means clinicians, with single sign-on, roaming and follow me printing, can take their session from device to device as they move through the hospital.

We will continue to focus on helping healthcare organizations harness the power of information to simplify administration; coordinate and manage patient care; transition from episodic care to prevention and wellness management; and ultimately to deliver personalized medicine resulting in better outcomes for patients, which is the ultimate goal.
