Health care systems are frequently relying on the use of new technology for patient care. Wireless medical devices, electronic medical records (EMRs), and personal mobile technology have slowly transformed medical networking systems into necessary aspects in patient care. Providing medical assistance to patients now demand a consistent wireless connection. Wired network systems are equally important if medical personnel want to fully use all advantages of health information technology.
Information Technology’s status in medical care has evolved from simple tasks on desktop computers to more complicated applications. As this technology grew, so did the importance of the network. In health care environments today, networks support electronic medical records as well as vast amounts of medical data. WiFi provides medical information to be transferred wirelessly to patient charts. Medical personnel using tablets that also utilize WiFi can then access these charts. Wired networks have the ability to have an expanded role in health information technology. They are better equipped to handle larger files such as radiology reports/images as well as establish secondary connection between medical facilities and data centers.
The network environment plays a vital role with medical applications such as EMRs. With electronic medical records, every data exchange and transaction travels through the network infrastructure. This causes large quality and capacity demands on the infrastructure of the network. This network infrastructure enables medical personnel to gain access and update all pertinent and medical information across the entire medical organization. Having a singular unified networking system is greatly important so that data can be accessed no matter the accessing point. This action would be unworkable without the ability of network connectivity.
