Just as health is a state of complete harmony of the body, mind and spirit, modern-day healthcare organisations and pharma companies are also dependent on execution based on very subtle and sophisticated links.
There is no longer a notion of the “family doctor” or the “town emergency room,” but rather a web of primary and secondary care that has grown to include first responders, paramedics, emergency room physicians, operating room staff, laboratories, rehabilitation clinics, and much more. Similarly, drug trials are not typically located in a single facility but are instead conducted in multiple sites across the globe to ensure a true random sampling.
So, the ask or need is to be connected at all times and the network should act as the lifeblood for these organisations ensuring that accurate information flows from the brain to any other organ and back. Foundationally, it must be reliable and secure ensuring assured experiences for all users, devices, and critical medical applications. And it can be transformational if it has artificial intelligence built-in to support heavier traffic as and when needed.
Additionally, in the age of hyper personalisation and immediacy of services, the network must be personalized for individuals (guest and staff likewise) based on their ever-changing needs and locations.
On the other hand, with more locations and users accessing new services with new devices, the threat vector has exponentially increased adding to the security and compliance risks inherent in healthcare due to sensitive data such as patient tracking. The network itself could be the basis of such treats as more organisations today require WiFi or RFID access for collecting data through telemetry.
Join us at The Economic Times & Juniper Networks present The Intelligent Enterprise webinar, under the theme of – “Building Nextgen Networks for Resiliency in Pharma”, to unlock the full potential of your health or pharma organisation and secure your information highway across all locations from the data center to the campus, and from the local clinic to the remote specialist.
