Cisco: Progressing the Patient Experience in IoT and Connected Healthcare (Whitepaper)

Cisco’s offerings to support connected healthcare start with the network, ensuring that communication is reliable, fast and secure. Cisco DNA for Healthcare leverages advances in Cisco’s network products (switches, routers, wireless and applications) and virtualised functions that enable immediate support for a range of digital technologies and application services. The DNA infrastructure and application portfolio provides an end-to-end platform for digitally connecting patients and healthcare teams and delivering the core business value metrics for the healthcare industry. Real-time analytics across network traffic and events monitoring tools provide actionable insights that can be applied to improve patient experiences and increase security postures. The network can be configured to provide a consistent experience, even in physical locations where usage is typically higher. Security is paramount, and the ability to rapidly respond to issues (or potential issues) is built in to the offering, along with other key policy and management capabilities.
