ARMONK, N.Y., July 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- IBM (NYSE: IBM), NoMachine and Novell announce today that Glendale Adventist Medical Center (GAMC) in Glendale, California has improved the experience of its hospital patients by delivering email and Web access in patient rooms, while saving significant information technology (IT) maintenance and energy costs.

The hospital installed personal computing stations in 65 patient rooms of its new West Tower, enabling patients to surf the Internet, communicate with friends and family through social media websites such as Facebook and Twitter, and research medical information about their condition.

The hospital estimates that the energy-efficient "thin client" computer monitors save 60 percent in electricity costs versus stand-alone PCs. The hospital estimates that the new desktops have saved 98 percent of the IT costs that would have been spent maintaining normal PCs.

GAMC patients have responded enthusiastically to the desktops, and the hospital sees this service as a way to attend to the patients' emotional needs and stand out from competitors. Some patients use the computers to blog about their hospital stay or update CarePa
