Few industries fundamentally impact lives as much as the healthcare sector. That’s why the promise of a secure, agile, information-sharing infrastructure designed for healthcare professionals is especially personal, practical, and valuable.

Today’s networks are commonly built on static, proprietary, hardware-centric architectures. Healthcare networks are no different. But while these architectures have remained static, the technologies riding them have been evolving fast. Virtualization. Cloud. Flash-enabled storage. Even databases have evolved to take advantage of open standards and protocols.

The healthcare industry now runs the risk of modernizing its operations on antiquated infrastructures that won’t stand up to the rigors and realities of today’s healthcare processes. And the potential failures go far beyond the inconvenience of slow response time from a patient portal. Consider a network failure during a procedure in which the surgeon is relying on network-based images. Suddenly we go from “not good” to “unacceptable.”

The Patient-Centered Network

Brocade’s patient-centered network solution aligns with the new, value-based clinical and business models that place relentless focus on improving care through people, processes, and technology. The solution provides a set of guiding principles that starts with a careful review of patient requirements at all levels of the healthcare process. The review lets us move beyond deploying a predefined “medical-grade” network reference architecture to determining what network architecture can best enable a quality, cost-effective patient care solution.  

Patient-centered networks enable IT to become more relevant to users and to maintain better control of resources through a combination of hardware and software functions. IT becomes a key enabler of quality care, rather than a provider of technologies. That enables organizations to deliver secure and cohesive next-generation services to patients across the continuum of care. And the close alignment between IT and healthcare professionals helps both organizations achieve the shared goal of improving patient outcomes. In that way, our solutions empower organizations to improve lives through patient-focused, open, economical services that enable safe, simplified, integrated and robust communication, collaboration, and information exchange.

CoxHealth Implements Highly Reliable Network to Improve Patient Care

Reviving Healthcare Networks

The healthcare industry must transition to an open, software-driven network design that can support the service levels which drive positive patient outcomes. And certainly Brocade is a leader in that “New IP” universe. Our standards-based solutions reduce vendor lock-in to allow for choice and flexibility. Applications, compute, storage, and the network all work seamlessly and transparently to deliver services on-demand with the highest quality user experience, while assuring regulatory compliance. And we support your transition to the New IP at your pace and on your terms.

But beyond all that, we recognize the unique attributes and challenges of an industry where lives can literally depend on your infrastructure. So we’re developing a series of platforms for healthcare providers, based on reference architectures for campus and data center networks in small, medium, and large facilities. By starting with these architectures, healthcare providers, payers, and life sciences organizations will be better able to build networks that meet their specific requirements.
