Healthcare Networks Enhance the Patient Experience with ActiveCore℠
Posted on: December 18, 2019 By: Sage Tourigny
Comcast Business recently announced that the nation’s leading hospital systems and healthcare organizations have deployed smart networks – fueled by the Comcast Business ActiveCore℠ software defined networking (SDN) platform – that enhance patient experiences and outcomes.
The increasing complexities associated with delivering patient care, managing confidential health records and meeting a host of regulatory requirements are challenging healthcare providers to seek technology solutions that enhance security and simplify compliance. At the same time, innovative healthcare technologies – from electronic health records to pill dispensing systems – are placing increased strain on healthcare providers’ networks, stalling performance sometimes to the point of ineffectiveness.
Comcast Business is helping clients in the healthcare space navigate these unique challenges and connectivity needs by deploying software-defined networking (SDN) and software-defined wide area networking (SD-WAN), powered by ActiveCore. Because ActiveCore was designed with large networks in mind, Comcast Business can provide healthcare organizations with a seamless transition from legacy, low-bandwidth MPLS networks to high-bandwidth, multiple path SD-WAN – thereby improving the experience for both providers and patients.
