"Healthcare organizations face a unique and daunting set of IT challenges," said Maryam Alexandrian, Senior Vice President, Worldwide Sales and Channels for Wyse Technology. "Our secure thin computing solutions when coupled with wireless capabilities enable organizations to provide the highest quality of medical care while meeting the most stringent security demands. The ability to reduce the administrative burden, lower electrical power consumption, as well as helping with Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) compliance, all add up to an unbeatable value proposition."

THISA's mission is to make IT efficient and easy to use, so healthcare organizations can focus on what they do best - delivering the very best in quality care for patients. Collectively spanning nearly 80 percent of the US, THISA members offer unmatched breadth and depth of technical expertise, strong customer commitment, and the ability to deliver on time, in scope, and on budget -- all from a single source.

"A critical element in what makes THISA effective is the ability of our alliance members to pull together best-of-breed software and networking solutions into a cohesive 'solution set' tailored to meet the specific demands of healthcare organizations, and seamlessly integrate within their own unique, often disparate, IT environments," said Bert Short, President of I-Access and a founding member of THISA.
