Overcoming Healthcare Access Challenges with Edge Services

Presented by

About this talk

In a modern, distributed care ecosystem, dedicated and "guaranteed" connectivity is mission-critical. The healthcare demand for connectivity is growing by 24.4% due to telehealth, remote patient monitoring, home healthcare, and cloud-based EMRs. (EMR) Electronic Medical Records improve the quality, safety, effectiveness, and delivery of healthcare services in distributed acute and non-acute communities. They are especially beneficial to rural America, where distances between clinics are great and specialists are often few and far between. Guaranteed connectivity with 100% uptime is the holy grail. Implementing, maintaining, updating, and optimizing Healthcare Information Technology, including EMR can be a challenge, for distributed facilities and providers with limited resources and expertise. Loss of system network connectivity means patient records are inaccessible. Whether Health Information Management Systems have an inherent connectivity problem, or whether it is installed on an insufficiently robust or poorly configured computer network, this problem plagues even some large healthcare networks. The added cybersecurity risk from data breaches and other cyber threats due to connectivity is also an ongoing concern. Kevin Dresser, a Megaport Solutions Architect, and Hector Rodriguez, Principal Executive Security Advisor of WWPS Health & Life Sciences at AWS, will discuss resilient and secure network solutions for hybrid cloud architectures and talk through EMR, Imaging, and Critical Care use cases that specifically address the above.
