Microsoft Office 2016 Brings Secure Mobility Solutions to Healthcare

Mobile computing is rapidly becoming the new workforce standard. Creating an environment that fosters enhanced collaboration and productivity is key to success in today’s fast-paced, global business environment. Employees are now used to the new standard of always being connected through mobile devices and apps and are now demanding this in the workplace. The Healthcare industry is no exception.

Creating a strong enterprise mobility strategy will lay the ground work for a modern Healthcare workplace. Physicians are always looking for ways to improve the way they work and care for their patients.

With the launch of Office 2016, Microsoft is further supporting Healthcare professionals with the tools they need to work more efficiently. Office 2016 addresses key obstacles clinicians face every day and allows them to spend more time focused on their patients. The new features include better protecting of sensitive patient information, all while allowing them to work while on-the-go.

Here are a few new features from Office 2016 that Healthcare providers can leverage.

Streamlined Collaboration:

Office 2016 introduces new collaboration capabilities that every team member can access to ensure they have the right tools to provide better care.

And with Skype for Business, clinicians and administrative staff can use IM, screen share, talk or video chat on any device, allowing medical staff to better engage with patients anywhere and work with other experts like they’re all in one room.

Secured Solutions:

Office 2016 is the most secure Office ever. It significantly reduces the risk of transmitting sensitive patient data with configurable Data Loss Prevention across Word, PowerPoint, Excel and Outlook. Health professionals can also securely access content when outside the hospital walls with Multi-factor Authentication, Rights Management, and Office 365 Message Encryption.

With Office 2016, going mobile has never been easier. Health professionals can expect consistency, reliability and anytime-anywhere access to critical applications.
