Why Upgrade Your Healthcare Facility's Network?

by Teddi Strassburger on March 17, 2021

AdobeStock_60892196It's obvious that Healthcare facilities are facing many challenges in the midst of everything going on. The last thing you want to have to worry - right now, or honestly, at any time - about is the strength of your network. Now, as we push networks and capabilities to the brink, it may be as good as time as any to investigate your network, evaluate opportunities for improvement and make a plan for how to build the functionalities you require into your network. This doesn't mean that you have to overhaul your entire system today; rather, you can use this time as a moment for analysis and reflection. It's time to see what works and what doesn't as we prepare for the future. 

One of the areas we can look to for improvement is adaptability. We have all had to make major strides in adaptation over the last year, and flexibility is going to continue to be important as we continue into the future. It's no different with your network. In a lot of hospitals, the networks are constrained by inefficient, isolated legacy systems, which makes it extremely difficult to improve them. And forget about integration! Integrating systems within a Healthcare facility is difficult or even impossible when working with a legacy system. In this era of telehealth, an efficient network is no longer simply something that would be nice to have - it's now a necessity

Telehealth, digital services within the hospital and connected Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) devices are placing increasing demands on your network and its infrastructure. As large a task as it is, sometimes, fully upgrading the network is the only solution for upgrading the way you deliver care to your patients. We know, though, that there are significant costs associated with such an upgrade, so I want to share all of the benefits of upgrading your network with you. It's a daunting task, but the benefits are enormous. 

If you've followed Accu-Tech for any amount of time, you've seen how passionate we are about integrated buildings. Integrated buildings are the way of the future, bringing various technologies together to create new efficiencies and bring new services to your staff and patients. An upgrade network allows you to implement any number of integrated solutions, from smart lighting and heating/cooling to innovative access control. 

An upgraded network could allow you to also implement cloud computing, new ways of gathering medical and operational analytics, enhanced data security, comprehensive training platforms for medical staff and doctors and even 5G to better connect all who use your Healthcare facility.
