Enabling Apple iPad users to access their virtual Windows(1) desktops, applications and data from anywhere, the new VMware View Client, in combination with VMware View, delivers a modern desktop optimized for the iPad's high-resolution Multi-Touch display.

Serving families in Southern California, Children's Hospital Central California is one of the 10 largest hospitals of its type in the United States. Recently, the Hospital deployed VMware View to provide secure, “Follow-me Desktops," that move from room-to-room with clinicians and staff as they treat their patients. The hospital plans to deploy VMware View Client for iPad.
“The iPad could fundamentally change the way our clinicians and staff approach their IT needs,” said Kirk Larson, chief information officer, Children's Hospital Central California. “Now with VMware View client for iPad, our caregivers can have the freedom to access a patient's electronic medical records anywhere in the hospital via an iPad on a secure VMware View desktop. This could not only improve patient care but may enable us to dramatically reduce costs and simplify device management.”
