Providence Health System Contracts with Veicon Technology
For Secure and Ultra Reliable Public Internet Access Terminals

Windows Terminals to be Installed at Providence St. Vincent Medical Center, Providence Portland Medical Center and Providence Milwaukie Hospital, and other Providence Hospitals and Clinics in Oregon

Portland, OR - Providence Health System (PHS) has signed a contract to install patented V-Link™ Internet access terminals at Providence St. Vincent Medical Center, Providence Portland Medical Center and Providence Milwaukie Hospital for guests and visitors. These terminals will allow people to check email, browse the Internet, and access standard office applications from Microsoft. PHS signed a two-year contract with Veicon Technology, Inc., of Beaverton, Oregon, after completing a very successful three-month pilot project to prove the functionality, system integrity and users' acceptance of the Veicon solution in the hospital environment.

"The PHS pilot project was a success because hospital management really wanted to provide their visitors with a tool to make them more productive while waiting for friends and relatives," stated Dr. Chong Lee, Executive Vice President of Veicon Technology. "PHS let us set up the pilot project on their own network, testing to make sure all traffic went very securely to our server. They believed in our technology, and now they are leading the industry with this innovative solution."

Unlike standard PCs, which require a lot of maintenance, Veicon's V-Link™ Internet terminals are diskless display units tied to a special computer server. This "thin client" environment is much more stable and allows Veicon to provide Internet access in public environments with minimal down time, while maintaining maximum security. Another major benefit, which has been well proven during the V-Link pilot project, is that the hospital IT staff did not have to be involved in the V-Link installation and service, as Veicon Technology took care of all aspects of project management, including service and support, preserving the IT staff's valuable time for their primary hospital duties.

The V-Link™ Internet terminals, which consist of a 15" monitor, a full-sized keyboard with a credit card reader, and a computer mouse, are more secure than PCs because they contain no hard disk, so no trace of the user's visit remains on the system once the user logs off. Veicon's software also ensures that no artifacts of the visit remain anywhere in the system or on the server.

Veicon Technology, Inc., develops, markets and supports the patented V-Link™ public Internet access software and terminals, which are installed in convention centers, airports, hospitals, hotel rooms, business centers, libraries, retail outlets and other public places. The V-Link™ terminals provide secure access to the Internet and office productivity software for the general public and mobile professionals. More information can be found at www.veicon.com.
