SEATTLE, Feb. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- HIMSS -- NetMotion Wireless (Booth #8163), a leading provider of mobile productivity and management software, announced today that its Mobile Virtual Private Network (VPN) solution has been selected by the Visiting Nurse Service of New York (VNSNY) to provide VNSNY's home healthcare workforce with real time access to critical data and applications at the point of care.

VNSNY nurses, therapists and clinicians spend the majority of their day providing in-home healthcare to patients and traveling between patient locations. These clinicians rely on continuous, reliable connectivity to clinical records, applications and email via tablet PCs or laptops. More than 2,500 VNSNY clinicians use Mobility XE(TM), NetMotion's Mobile VPN software, to improve productivity and connect securely to applications, roam seamlessly between multiple wireless networks, and maintain applications even when users move in and out of wireless coverage areas.

"NetMotion's software helps our workforce stay reliably connected and productive so that our team can focus on their jobs, not the technology."
