Cisco Systems Inc. at HIMSS 2004 last week showed off its Cisco Medical-Grade Network suite of products, services and supporting materials.
Specifically, Cisco demonstrated three components of the Medical-Grade Network Solution set -- Protect and Secure for Healthcare; the Responsive Healthcare Solution; and the Interactive Healthcare Solution.
Cisco's Protect and Secure for Healthcare takes advantage of wired, wireless and voice technologies to protect and secure information and assets across the network and the physical assets of the healthcare organization. The technology currently is shipping to clients.
The Interactive and Responsive Healthcare Solution combines data, voice and video to create a unified contact point for staff, provide intelligent distribution of and access to patient information, and facilitate shared expertise among caregivers. Today, several healthcare providers deploy the Cisco Interactive Healthcare Solution with IP telephony technology from Cisco IP Communications System.
