SVP to Host Preparing Healthcare Infrastructure for the Next Pandemic Webinar

SVP to Host Preparing Healthcare Infrastructure for the Next Pandemic Webinar

While states and economies are beginning to reopen and recover from the global COVID-19 pandemic, the concerns are far from over. Cases continue to climb in some parts of the country, which is creating a need for hospital beds and equipment as more people seek treatment. Throughout the pandemic, hospitals nationwide have been pushed to the brink as beds filled with people seeking treatment, and the strain the surge put on hospital IT infrastructure struggled to keep pace. Strategic Venue Partners (SVP), the leading provider of in-building wireless connectivity-as-a-service, will host a webinar to address how healthcare facilities can better prepare their systems. Preparing Health IT Infrastructure for the Next Pandemic and the Future takes place at 2 p.m. E.T. on Wednesday, July 15.

The Nation’s Aging Healthcare IT Infrastructure

Healthcare IT infrastructure has fallen behind largely due to limited capital to invest in upgrades.  Health Facilities Management Magazine reports that in 2015, the average age of plant (AoP), a ratio that measures how well facilities are kept up to date, for U.S. hospitals ranged from about 10-11 years. In 2004, the average AoP was about 9 years. 

Post-Pandemic Healthcare IT Solutions

The rise of 5G will continue to bring higher demands for stronger, faster connectivity within healthcare facilities. While the technology adds pressure to systems, it will also enhance a physician’s capability to monitor a patient’s condition remotely, provide additional treatment opportunities using telehealth, augmented reality, virtual reality, AI, and more, all of which has the capability to free up hospital beds, which is necessary if we are to be prepared for another crisis.   

During the webinar, Justin Marron, CEO for SVP and  Pat Rhatigan, National Business Development Manager for RF Connect, will address various ways healthcare systems can future-proof their infrastructure using methods. They’ll offer insights on small patches that will carry facilities through the next few years, and realistic ways to implement more permanent overhauls.  

Attendees will also learn: 

  • Why the traditional way of building and funding wireless infrastructure is no longer effective
  • The benefits of fully integrated in-building wireless infrastructure
  • How to enable modern connectivity with confidence in a network that is stable, scalable and secure
  • The advantages of converting a substantial capital expenditure with undetermined future costs to a fixed operating expense that reduces risk for future technology upgrades with a long-term turnkey solution

SVP has an excellent long-term solution for leaders looking to future-proof their infrastructure. The company’s lifecycle management solution comes complete with design, development, implementation, upgrades, monitoring and ongoing maintenance and management.
