As a worldwide leader in networking, Cisco is well positioned to improve the future of healthcare through networked technologies that transform how people connect, access information, and collaborate. Cisco® technologies can benefit all stakeholders, from patients to medical providers, payers, and life sciences organizations. Cisco Connected Health solutions enable care team collaboration and business efficiency and promote a higher quality of care.

Healthcare information-sharing network

Today, the average hospital network runs more than 300 applications. Patient data is scattered across disparate systems in public and private entities, and it can be difficult and costly for healthcare professionals to share vital medical, clinical, and patient information.

Cisco helps simplify healthcare communications using a network of interoperable technologies that better connect patients with medical providers, payers, and life science organizations. Cisco solutions link critical information, people, and knowledge to help improve the healthcare experience.

Secure health data communication network

The Cisco Medical-Grade Network provides a network foundation that enables reliable, seamless, and secure health data communications within the healthcare community. This framework allows integration and interoperability at each functional area to optimize interactions among healthcare participants, processes, applications, and hardware components. This includes areas such as acute care campus networks, ambulatory clinics, remote clinicians, and data centers.
