Lives in the Balance, Data on the Move...
Are doctors' iPads causing headaches?How reliable and secure are electronic patient records?Are systems keeping pace with healthcare reform?
There's no greater "data risk" than patient care relying on the secure exchange of accurate, actionable information. Increasingly, this vital exchange of data and new patient care models are implemented electronically, and over mobile networks and devices: Electronic patient records. Doctors’ iPads. Nurses using "computers on wheels" (COWs).
The modernization of facility networks to comply with healthcare reform and expansion of Wireless LANs (WLANs) to include the ever-growing barrage of mobile devices introduces still more risk that must be monitored and mitigated by progressive performance and deployment testing. Facility administrators need to know how each new system, device or application will perform in and of itself, and how each will interact with and impact the existing ecosystems, availability and security.
