Healthcare facilities have the same information technology challenges of any other field – but that’s only the beginning for this complicated industry.
Like any service organization, healthcare faculties serve the wireless communication needs of those utilizing their services. Medical staff relies on the readily and reliably available information needed to provide the best possible service, and updated technology is a factor in retaining top-tier doctors, surgeons, and administrators. Organizations coordinate the passage of data with insurers and other healthcare facilities, and with regulation increasing both the need for critical data and the manner in which it is provided, the healthcare industry’s reliance on updated and efficient technology is unparalleled. Adding to the challenges, any equipment physically present in a healthcare facility is subject to infection control procedures. As a result, healthcare facilities find themselves in constant cycles of evaluating, purchasing, and upgrading their communications systems.
This mission-critical drive for superior information technologies was a driving factor in the partnership between a world-class healthcare provider and a major technology distributor. HCA is the first, largest, and most profitable healthcare company in the world with 168 hospitals and over 2000 clinics. Accu-Tech is a high-profile national distributor of voice, data, A/V, DAS and security solutions with over thirty years of experience working with leading manufacturers in the industry.
