What We Can Learn from Healthcare Pros Using HP Z Workstations
How do you get your team to push boundaries? By giving them the tools they need to do their best work. And when it comes to superior performance, the advent of powerful PCs that can smoothly run everything from 3D modeling software to high-level remote collaboration has changed the game.
Healthcare professionals are using these tools to save lives on a daily basis, whether it's with point-of-care bedside treatment or remote telemedicine. The latest PC innovations also make accessing medical records a snap, as well as improving picture archiving and communication systems. And then there is, perhaps, the most important application of all: 3D test runs of surgical procedures.
At the forefront of all this are HP Z Workstations, some of the most powerful, flexible and—most importantly for organizations on a budget—upgradeable workstations out there. The dual processing HP Z820 Workstation offers HP's ultimate performance for ultimate projects, while the HP ZBook mobile series lets you do your best work wherever you are. In the middle is the HP Z1 G2 Workstation, an all-in-one workstation with a brilliant display and the latest technologies in an elegant, easily customizable design.
Here's how HP Z Workstations are revolutionizing massive industries such as healthcare—and how they can help you do your best work.
1. They're flexible
The Z series lets you configure your workstation your way—a must for hospitals and doctors' offices. If you're on a budget, start with a base model and only build with the pieces you need. Easily access, customize, and maintain system components with a tool-less and visually cable-free chassis—ideal for direct connections with drives and power supplies. Connect in a flash with 4X USB 3.0 bandwidth on an optional high-performance Thunderbolt™ 2.0 port. Do your work the way you want to do it—you have options galore.
2. They won't fall out of date
Upgrades are expensive, especially across large medical organizations. But you don't have to worry about your hardware being out of date in a few years anymore. With the Z series, you can change most components or make upgrades on your own without tools or a service technician. Simply snap open the chassis and customize to fit your needs. If your business is on a tight budget, this flexibility can save you money down the road.
3. They're powerful
Healthcare pros use Z Workstations to store CT, MRI, and PED imaging results; the Z also makes archiving and accessing those images a fast, easy process. And physicians can examine a 3D rendering of a cell—or a person's heart—on the HP Zvr Interactive Virtual Reality Display.
Plan to give your workstation a workout? Avoid nasty big-data bottlenecks with the Z's all-new Turbo Drive, the first cost-effective PCIe-based SSD (Solid State Drive) for desktop workstations. Looking for a laptop with muscle? The vivid 17.3-inch diagonal optional HP DreamColor display on the new HP ZBook 17 Mobile Workstation offers crystal-clear imagery.
4. They're made to work together
Nonprofit and public health organizations need ways to do more with less for underserved communities and remote populations. HP DreamColor Displays help deliver preventive education and consultations to people in isolate locations. Physicians can pull up live patient video feeds along with patient vitals and medical records to collaborate remotely.
The bottom line? The HP Z Workstation series delivers beautiful 3D graphics, high performance and reliability, and they're easily upgradeable. It's the perfect choice for healthcare professionals—and other professionals—everywhere.
