Is Healthcare IT Infrastructure Ready to Support New Technologies?
Anixter and Panduit surveyed healthcare facilities to learn about their current and future network application demands. From standards compliance and cybersecurity to core measuring metrics and emerging technologies, healthcare facilities are at the leading edge of major technology investments to provide top care in a safe environment. However, not all areas are being supported equally. This is what we discovered.
Hospitals are making major technology investments based on top industry trends, which are to help improve productivity, outcomes and patient satisfaction in a safe and secure environment. The planning and budget for these investments is often focused on the software, network and servers. However, the cable plant of many hospitals may not be able to handle the demands of new healthcare technologies. Failing to take into consideration the strength of the cable plant to support these technologies can leave hospitals with cost overruns and quality of service issues following implementation of expensive software and hardware upgrades.
By working together, Anixter and Panduit, an Anixter Technology Alliance Partner, can help you connect, manage and automate systems to build a smarter, future-ready, unied communications foundation for an efficient healthcare facility.
