Bandwidth optimization for medical offices
Doctors, nurses, aides, and administrative staff inside medical offices of all sizes often feel the pain of insufficient or underperforming bandwidth. The lack of high performing connectivity can affect all aspects of operations inside a medical office causing a decline in patient satisfaction. While patient satisfaction should be any healthcare provider’s number one goal, new HIPAA regulations and management of electronic medical records (EMR) are new and compelling reasons that medical management teams need to prioritize bandwidth optimization as a network management tool for their offices as part of their patient’s satisfaction.
Bandwidth performance affects newer technology that increases the efficiency of healthcare, as well as regulations and practices. Picture archiving and communication system (PACS), Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM), the management of EMRs, patient care databases, and information backup times can all be greatly enhanced with the addition of bandwidth optimization and management tools. Connectivity within a medical office impacts so much of what the doctors and staff have to do on a daily basis. Reliable connections are needed to access EMRs, view images of x-rays and scans, communicate with labs, collaborate with colleagues, file health insurance claims for patients, as well as corresponding with patients via email or through a website portal.
Medical offices and doctors are located everywhere, both in urban and rural areas. Doctors and staff in rural areas can only work with the bandwidth available in their areas, as upgrading existing infrastructures is extremely expensive or may not be possible at all. Depending on their location, medical offices may only have access to low bandwidth connections that typically can’t meet the needs of a modern healthcare facility. Medical offices across the globe can better their existing connection types by using Acceleration Systems’ optimization technologies. We can help your medical office better manage existing connections and reduce data consumption, as well as include other benefits like reduced bandwidth upgrade costs, accelerated Internet speeds, and enhanced application performance.
Upgrading Current Connections without the Costly Upgrades
Depending on the location of the medical office, managing the increasing connectivity demands due to the emergence of EMRs and digital images can be complicated and costly. Most assume that throwing additional bandwidth at an underperforming or lower grade bandwidth connection is the solution. Unfortunately, purchasing additional bandwidth, if available, isn’t always the solution. We can help medical offices resolve the issue of bandwidth shortages, overwhelmed networks, and acceleration issues without high price tags. Doctors and medical offices worldwide can now save millions of dollars by using Acceleration Systems’ bandwidth optimization solutions versus using six-figure services that include much longer deployment timelines. We can improve your existing connection, which enhances the network, boosts employee productivity, and accelerates the Internet, all for one low monthly cost.
