High-performance, IP-based Ethernet networks are the standard for infrastructure convergence. These digital networks enable rapid and accurate transmission of large volumes of data. They also provide an integrated connectivity platform for real-time collaboration, monitoring and control, as well as a myriad of voice, data, video and multimedia applications designed to improve the overall quality and delivery of healthcare services.
The transmission performance of the cabling plant should be selected to accommodate current and future networking needs for a minimum lifetime of 10 years, or two generations of Ethernet.
In the past two decades, hospitals experienced an IT-based development process. At the early stage, the development was focused on administrative management and then on doctors’ diagnosis. Now digital hospitals focus their development on how to better serve patients. “Smart Hospitals” are based on digital hospitals and require a number of new medical applications to serve patients, such as network services, mobile healthcare, remote healthcare, and health management. However, the application of new services has caused numerous obstacles to hospitals on their way to IT-based development.
The IEI Mobile Healthcare Solution enables wireless access from laptops, personal digital assistants (PDAs), pads, wireless illness trackers, and other devices to the wireless network to support medical staff’s activities, such as wireless ward round, assets management, personnel tracking, and online inquiry. With this wireless network, hospitals break space boundaries and can provide ubiquitous medical services for patients, thus improving the work efficiency of medical staff.
The healthcare landscape is rapidly changing due to a convergence of factors, including greater patient awareness and participation in the healthcare process, difficulties engaging and motivating staff, the impact of public and private ratings and rankings, and the ongoing need to be innovative, efficient and “do more with less.” Not surprisingly, a cloud phone system is perfectly suited to help hospitals manage this perfect storm of challenging variables and ensure they remain stable and strong for the long-term future.
While each hospital is unique, here are 3 key reasons why a cloud phone system for any hospital makes bottom-line sense:
VoIP for Hospitals Advantage
Significant and Ongoing Cost Savings
Hospitals are under constant pressure to reduce costs. However, they must to do so in a way which allows them to mitigate or avoid laying off staff, since doing so may temporarily solve one problem while creating an even bigger one: finding and keeping qualified healthcare professionals on the roster.
A cloud phone system enables hospitals to significantly reduce telecommunication costs both initially and on an ongoing basis, since there are no costly lines to rent, long distance bills to pay, maintenance/upgrade costs to cover, or on-site PBX to purchase, configure and support. What’s more, a cloud phone system can reduce the need for staff travel, and hence, reduce travel costs, since some meetings can be held virtually via video conferences.
Regardless of whether they’re relatively smaller regional hospitals or large urban health networks, the fact remains that hospitals are busy (and sometimes frenetic and frenzied!) hubs of activity, where time is always of the essence, and communication gaps can have dire consequences.
A cloud phone system empowers hospital staff to stay connected wherever they are, on-site or off, and utilize an array of built-in advanced calling features like voicemail-to-text, in order to improve communication efficiency and quality. This is especially valuable when unifying remote and disparate teams, who may rarely (if ever) work side-by-side, but are nevertheless unified by a shared communication system.
Records Management & Security
Hospital executives know that improved operational efficiency cannot adversely impact data security protocols and records management compliance; on the contrary, it must enhance and augment these pillars.
A cloud phone system aligns with this fundamental requirement. For example, calls can be recorded for security and auditing. In addition, calls are encrypted from handsets into a secure network, and data is secured in carrier-grade data centers that use robust security controls confirmed by third-party reports
