Last Wednesday, Sidera Networks and Ciena hosted a webinar about the positive effects technology has on the healthcare industry.
Today’s technology is significantly contributing to improvements in patient care – providing greater access to patient records, higher availability of applications and lower mortality rates in highly wired hospitals.

The “Building Healthcare Networks that Solve Big Data Congestion” webinar provided attendees with insight into the benefits of advanced networks in hospitals along with a real-world example from Elliot Health System, the largest provider of comprehensive healthcare services in Southern New Hampshire.

Key topics included:

  • Is your network keeping up with the demands of new medical applications that can quickly congest your organization’s network with large data files?
  • Do your future needs require that you adopt advanced electronic medical record archives or to make more network data available to improve diagnosis and patient care?

Featured speakers included Joseph Kestel, Vice President of Relevant C Business Group, Thomas Fairfield, Elliot Health System’s Manager of Technology, Maura Mahoney, Sidera’s Vice President of Marketing and Business Development and Ray Patalano, Ciena’s Director of Channel Sales.
