The right strategy for delivering your healthcare is essential to patients’ well-being. From telehealth to increasing caregiver efficiency to data sharing, the Internet of Everything enables a plethora of opportunities for the healthcare industry. The Internet of Everything connects patients, care providers, hospitals and suppliers to create more secure, productive and affordable healthcare systems.

There is $106 billion value at stake in connected healthcare and patient monitoring by 2022. Capturing this value and embracing today’s major technology transitions of cloud, mobility, security, big data and analytics requires a new fast IT model that is simple, smart and secure. See how we can help your organization with the implementation of a connected healthcare strategy.

See the Journey

Physicians are using cloud environments and applications through mobile devices. The result is omnipresent access to medical records, increasing the opportunity for secure communication among physicians.

The cloud is an essential infrastructure component for things like electronic patient records and telehealth offering anytime video consults with physicians, nurses and assistants. In addition, it provides connections across bill payers, insurance companies and an ecosystem of partners and healthcare providers, and electronic delivery of prescriptions to pharmacies. Just as important, the cloud enables healthcare providers to buy only the computing resources they need when they need them. This lets health providers to deliver lifesaving services while meeting regulatory requirements (such as HIPAA) and keeping patient care costs under control.

Cisco cloud solutions can help transform patient care, and boost clinical and IT workflows across your organization.
