The Institute for Health Technology Transformation announced today a health IT Webinar entitled "Ensuring PCs in Hospitals are Always Healthy & Fully Functional" scheduled to take place February 24, 2010, at 2:00 p.m. ET.

The webinar will discuss how Persystent Suite is able to reduce help desk calls, enhance support of mobile PC users and extend the life of PCs. The webinar will feature insights from Katherine Wattwood, VP of Product Development, Persystent Software; Tom Johnson, Systems Engineer, Persystent Software; and Sean Keegan, IS Support Tech Supervisor, University Physicians Healthcare.

According to Katherine Wattwood, "We know how computer failures can seem like life and death to IT health care professionals. The end users they serve expect them to repair their PC programs on the spot, and in record time. Little do they know the pressures and demands IT departments face." Ms Wattwood adds that those pressures include "a low ratio of IT staff to end users, security infringements due to multi-user PC environments and 24/7 uptime."

Highlights of the webinar include a "break-fix" demo of Persystent Suite from Persystent Software, where a systems engineer will demonstrate how nothing including viruses, malware or authorized programs can stop a Persystent PC from returning to its desired configuration.

Katherine Wattwood has over 25 years of experience in software engineering and information technology. She has helped drive significant product innovation and growth for some of the world's largest software enterprises, leading development teams through corporate mergers and acquisitions in the process.

Tom Johnson has over 10 years of hands-on experience in reconfiguring client networks and supporting customer needs. He is known for guiding customers to effectively install and implement Persystent Software solutions in a variety of IT environments.

Sean Keegan manages a team of 9 helpdesk technicians based in Tucson at the UPH headquarter office. He is currently leading the charge toward imaging PCs that are better configured to user groups and job function. From the convenience of a central console, Sean is able to image machines located in multiple hospital and clinic sites statewide.
