AireSpring Global Managed SD-WAN Benefits for Healthcare
Healthcare facilities, such as hospitals, care centers, doctor’s offices, pharmacies and clinics, and their clients/patients rely upon critical applications over the WAN. Healthcare providers send patient records, schedule physicians and facilities, archive digital images, support telemedicine, and much more.
Healthcare organizations are realizing the many benefits of using cloud and SaaS services and accessing apps over the Internet for patient records and billing systems. They use the Internet to share information and communicate between physicians, care providers, administrators and patients. Keeping healthcare data secure is of utmost importance. In fact, it is a HIPAA requirement to support secure and reliable access to patient records.
Telehealth enables remote patient and clinician contact, care, advice, education, monitoring, remote admissions, and more. Telehealth uses the WAN to support real-time videoconferencing and streaming media. To support a quality user experience, the WAN must have appropriate quality of service (QoS).
Healthcare applications are powerful and sophisticated, and the Internet infrastructure supporting them is now a critical component. Ensuring the reliable and fast delivery of these applications is critical to the success of any healthcare organization.
