For patients in any hospital, every minute spent waiting to see the doctor can seem like an eternity. Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital in Valencia, Calif., wanted to enable doctors to spend less time at computers and more time at bedsides. Realizing the potential of the Internet of Things, the hospital created an intelligent system that vastly speeds up access to patient data. The system connects 175 new thin clients — devices that draw on centralized computing power — and its physicians’ own tablets and other devices to existing datacenters and systems, creating anywhere, anytime access to data, from patient records and test results to prescriptions and more. By focusing on this one aspect of its business, the hospital is able to provide better care while vastly improving doctor efficiency.

As the company moves forward as One Microsoft, we must do an extraordinary job of overcoming complex social and environmental challenges throughout our packaging and hardware supply chain. Recently, we formalized our values and approach around upstream responsible sourcing through “Microsoft’s Responsible Sourcing of Raw Materials” policy.
What’s changed in our thinking? We are extending our positive influence to the furthest reaches of our upstream supply chain – all the way to harvested and extracted materials. This is a natural evolution of our Supplier Social and Environmental Accountability (SEA) program. In 2005, we began holding our contracted suppliers accountable to the ethical business, labor, environmental and worker safety practices outlined in our Supplier Code of Conduct. Since then, we’ve expanded our vision for SEA from operating responsibly to operating sustainably. Throughout our supply chain, we are committed to empowering people to do their best while preserving and sustainably using resources and upholding human rights, safety and business ethics.
