Cisco DNA for Healthcare

Unlock the network’s full potential for patients and care teams​

Patient care starts with the network. It connects everything – medical devices, clinicians, patients, and their caregivers. And it has the power to help you personalize patient care, streamline staff collaboration and workflows, and optimize clinical business and IT operations. All while keeping patient data and medical devices safe and in compliance regulations.

Informed by context, powered by intent, and driven by intuition—Cisco Digital Network Architecture (Cisco DNA) makes healthcare network management simple, intelligent, and automated. This is a new era of networking. The Network. Intuitive.​ A journey to intent-based networking.

A new era of
networking for healthcare.

The Network. Intuitive.

Explore Cisco’s
intent-based networking

Picture a new network that identifies life-support systems in context then automatically puts them in secure segments.

One that intuitively watches traffic for bad behavior, continuously finding and containing malware before it can hurt you.

A network that ensures that telemedicine sessions always have the high-quality, real-time service doctors and patients need.

That’s intent-based networking.

It’s constantly learning.

The new network is always watching, authenticating, analyzing, and responding. It can help you turn data into actionable insights that take quality of care to new levels.

It’s constantly adapting.

The new network accelerates and simplifies everything, automatically responding to new digital requirements. Focus IT resources on initiatives that improve patient care and reduce costs.

It’s constantly protecting.

The new network quickly detects and mitigates threats-even those hiding in encrypted traffic. This keeps your most critical medical systems, sensitive data, and patients safe.
