How the Evolution of Networking Infrastructure Supports Smart Hospitals
The digitization strategies that many healthcare organizations have adopted offer actionable, meaningful insights to clinical and business outcomes. But these gains come with some challenges, including regulatory standards such as HIPAA. One of the healthcare industry’s biggest concerns is keeping patient data private and secure.
Smart hospital strategies improve clinical and patient experience through shared applications while complying with HIPAA requirements. Connecting devices using Internet of Things (IoT) management and making real-time clinical or operational decisions are driving factors of smart hospital practice. However, this can create a dependency on networking technology.
In a smart hospital strategy, there seems to be no limit to the number of devices possible, whether wireless or wired. And with new technology manufacturers wanting to jump on the smart hospital bandwagon, the number of devices on an organization’s network will continue to grow.
