Secure, affordable, easy-to-administer healthcare networks
Healthcare organizations often have a combination of legacy and new applications running on disparate proprietary networks, which can create interoperability, visibility, and security issues. Such chaos can challenge an organization’s ability to securely access and exchange patient information.
However, healthcare providers face many challenges in their adoption of technology and must strike a difficult balance.
- Support unified wired and wireless communication, patient monitoring systems, real-time collaboration, automated self-service, and on-demand internet access to patient medical and billing information.
- Reduce the complexity and cost burden on IT.
- Ensure privacy of sensitive patient health records.
This problem is especially difficult to solve because most healthcare providers have a combination of legacy and new applications running on disparate proprietary networks which causes 3 main challenges:
Such chaos can make it difficult for IT teams to support real-time and resource intensive solutions such as digital imaging and electronic health records (EHRs) at the point of care, as well as provide telemedicine and other productivity-enhancing technologies that can help improve patient care and address the chronic shortage of healthcare professionals.
HP networking solutions are designed to help healthcare organizations rapidly deploy new services and enhance user connectivity and productivity. These best-in-class networking solutions help enable IT agility, business continuity, and improved service delivery to patients and staff. HP's unique ability to build a high performance, resilient, energy-efficient, secure, and flexible network enables healthcare organizations to reduce complexity and operational costs while supporting new digital healthcare applications and enhanced services.

The HP Intelligent Resilient Framework (IRF) technology enables flatter network designs and easier-to-manage infrastructure. Healthcare organizations can create a virtual switching fabric that delivers geographic independence, distributed high availability, resiliency, and millisecond reconvergence across Layer 2 and Layer 3 protocols. With IRF-based solutions, IT teams can pool switching resources to create a lower cost, stable, fault-tolerant environment that is simpler to provision and maintain.
With HP networking solutions as a cornerstone, the HP Converged Infrastructure delivers an architectural blueprint that integrates servers, storage, and networking, eliminating technology silos and freeing up resources to focus more on business innovation.
The modern application- and service-ready HP FlexFabric networking architecture - a key element of the HP Converged Infrastructure that connects data center server and storage resources - can quickly adapt to changing business requirements, dynamically scaling capacity and provisioning connections to meet application demands “on the fly.”
