Split-second clinical decisions. Real-time access to treatment, condition, and medication history. Precise information shared with key stakeholders over secure and private networks. All play a crucial role in improving the quality of medical services and patient care. And all rely on a high-performance network.
The explosive growth of medical data created by advanced medical imaging and the digital transformation of paper records to digital data files is an added challenge to global healthcare institutions. This shift is creating an exponential problem in data and storage growth and disaster preparedness, unprecedented in healthcare IT. At the same time, the healthcare industry is facing unrelenting attacks from identity thieves and cyber criminals.
Electronic Health Record networking solutions powered by a high-capacity and high-performance infrastructure can help reduce medical errors and improve patient care by quickly and reliably delivering critical data, handling massive data storage, and responding to unpredictable bandwidth demands.
Advanced Medical Imaging and Digital video for telemedicine/telesurgery can save lives, while cost-effectively transporting high-bandwidth fMRI, CT scan, genome sequencing and, uncompressed, native video signals—preserving every detail—over high-bandwidth, low-latency networks with flexibility and precision, regardless of distance.
Reliable, secure delivery of sensitive encrypted data gets the right information to the right people, every time when transported across various architectures using FIPs-certified encryption.
Preparing for the future of healthcare
The data deluge facing the healthcare industry is an unavoidable reality as more and more patient data shifts to the digital world. The benefits to patient care and organizational efficiency are clear, but this presents its own complexities. Adhering to multiple sets of regulation means disaster recovery and security are key, and the network plays a critical role in ensuring these demands are met. Healthcare organizations must modernize their networks to ensure they’re prepared to provide the most cost-efficient, highest quality patient care possible in the new digital healthcare world.
An explosive growth in digital medical applications means healthcare organizations are increasingly reliant on bandwidth to ensure connectivity where needed and when, instantaneous access to key patient information, and disaster preparedness. Efficiency through digitalization is essential to streamline clinical workflows and reduce the cost of healthcare delivery. The ability to reduce the time and distance gap between patient and provider assists in the transition from volume-based care to more-preventive value-based care models.
At the same time, these organizations face cost pressures, and challenges of meeting industry and government regulations. In addition, they must balance between the need to make patient data accessible at all times while ensuring security and privacy of protected health information. Now, more than ever, healthcare organizations rely on the communications network to cope with these increasing requirements, and to enable an always-connected healthcare environment.
A healthy network can be a strategic business asset. Healthcare networks must ensure constant availability, meet compliance requirements, and provide off-site data storage backup and retrieval. The requirements of the network are closely linked to the type of data being stored and what pressures are placed on the network by enabling the accessibility of that data.
A healthy network is one that can be effectively programmed to prioritize the availability and transfer of traffic. Real-time telesurgery video and data, for example, must take precedence over less-critical, non-clinical institutional network traffic.
For many healthcare providers around the globe, Ethernet services can be a cost-effective resource by offering more granular, incremental network upgrades than legacy offerings. By standardizing architectures suitable to large-scale deployment, healthcare organizations are able to increase network visibility and guarantee better performance. Ethernet also enables greater control over routing information and security and encryption techniques.
Despite billions of dollars spent on data security in the healthcare industry, cyber attacks and data breaches continue at epidemic levels. Healthcare CIOs have realized it’s no longer a matter of if you will be attacked, it’s when you
Precise information is the lifeblood of healthcare sector enterprises, empowering providers to deliver the best possible patient outcomes.
