Keeping your information safe and secure

From January 2020 Microsoft won’t provide security updates for devices running on Windows 7. Mobile working solutions like our Anywhere Consult devices could be the alternative way of working you need.

After 14 January 2020, Microsoft will no longer be providing security updates or support for Windows 7 devices. Once the support and updates from Microsoft end, failing to upgrade your systems could leave you vulnerable to security breaches such as malware and ransomware attacks. Plus, with the increased need to be able to visit patients outside of the practice and work remotely, there’s never been a better time to replace your desktop device with a modernised, mobile way of working.

Access everything you need, wherever you need it

Our Anywhere Consult devices provide an all-in-one solution that gives you the ability to do everything you need to on a single device in any location. In fact, Anywhere Consult is already helping clinicians in Worcestershire CCGs improve their mobile working processes and provide a better quality of care to patients outside of the practice. Soft-phone capabilities also make it easier for clinicians to provide telephone consultations with their patients whatever location they’re in, helping to significantly improve care continuity.

Using the Anywhere Consult devices, clinicians across the CCG are able to provide bedside care and deal with poor Wi-Fi. The Anywhere Consult devices work off both Wi-Fi and data connections provided through our connectivity package, so clinicians can be confident in maintaining a connection to their clinical system wherever they are.

Supporting patients across multiple locations

Since they started using their Anywhere Consult devices, 11 clinicians from Sunlight Group Practice have been able to improve the level of care they’re able to provide outside of the practice. The team support the care of 7,200 patients across four locations, so having a way to access, update and share patient’s records from any location was crucial.

With Anywhere Consult, the team carry out domestic home visits and attend sessions at four locations, while delivering the same high-quality care they would in a standard practice consultation. They’re able to access vital patient information at the point of care, so that they can make safer and more informed decisions.

An opportunity for change

While the need to upgrade your existing software to stay up to date with the latest security services can seem like a lot of effort for little return, by choosing our Anywhere Consult devices you’re getting more than just a hardware upgrade. What you also get is a real opportunity to transform the way you work, improve patient safety and meet growing mobile working demands. With an all-in-one device like Anywhere Consult, you can truly revolutionise your ways of working and complete all your clinical and non-clinical tasks from any location - whether you’re in the practice or on an external visit.

If you’re considering a wider mobile working plan to coincide with the need for a refresh of your existing hardware, you may be able to submit for additional funding from Estates and Technology Transformation Fund (ETTF).

We work with carefully chosen partners to support your mobile and remote working requirements.
