At hospitals, access to information can be a matter of life and death. Slow or intermittent connections are simply unacceptable. And the demands on healthcare communications networks are growing - everything from doctors' orders to electronic clinical systems to patients' records is stored on the network. To add to the complexity, some applications (like digital imaging) devour bandwidth, and patient privacy must always remain unfailingly secure.
tw telecom's Business Ethernet solution for businesses is the scalable, versatile solution for healthcare organizations. Business Ethernet provides the performance necessary for healthcare institutions, giving access to all users - administrators, physicians, support staff - anytime, anywhere. At the same time, the private network provides the highest level of data protection.
Just as important as data security is data control. Storing sensitive patient and organization data offsite can raise questions about control and accessibility, but the insight available with a tw telecom network gives control of data as if you were on-site. As part of tw telecom'sIntelligent Network, a feature called Dynamic Capacity will give administrators even greater control, allowing healthcare IT managers to manually scale up or down bandwidth as needed. Adding bandwidth for high-priority applications is possible because the tw telecom network offers network administrators complete, real-time visibility into network usage. This visibility gives healthcare officials control over their data - anywhere, anytime.
Of course with healthcare facilities, patient privacy is a top-of-mind concern at all times. Compliance with HIPAA and other regulations demands top security, so the communications network must offer ironclad security. With tw telecom, robust and redundant connections to your off-site data centers mean that the connections cannot be compromised. That is a big relief for healthcare administrators.
