Organizations need a secure, high performing healthcare IT infrastructure to ensure the smooth and safe distribution of medical and patient data throughout the network with minimal disruption. Bandwith-intensive applications such as Electronic Medical Records (EMR) and Picture Archiving and Communications Systems (PACS) are placing greater capacity and availability demands on the network. In addition, strict privacy and regulatory requirements, such as complying with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), are taxing IT staff to ensure that the network infrastructure is always securely managed.
Uplogix addresses these unique challenges. Uplogix Local Managers (LMs) collocate with network devices and servers to provide out-of-band, non-stop secure management and control, eliminating time-consuming and expensive tech support trips to remote locations to make routine network changes and repairs. From the Uplogix Control Center, administrators can centrally manage all network devices and systems connected to Uplogix LMs via an easy-to-use, web-based interface.
Uplogix provides healthcare IT organizations with a solution that simplifies the management of a widely distributed and complex IT infrastructure, reduces IT support costs, maintains high network availability and service levels, and constantly enforces security and compliance auditing requirements.
There’s just too little time to focus on improving network performance and availability, or implementing new applications that advance patient care.
With large groups of users and diverse equipment to support, using Uplogix makes a lot of sense. Healthcare network infrastructure can be monitored independently of the network itself, recovery actions can be automated, and smaller staffs can support distributed sites with fewer truck rolls. In the 24/7/365 world of healthcare, uptime is a requirement.
Here are some benefits Uplogix brings to OUHSC’s network operations:
