Enabling Tomorrow’s Healthcare Solutions with Collaboration Technology
Healthcare has emerged over the past decade as one of the most critical and competitive industries in the country. The connection between patient consumers and healthcare providers is critical to the success of every healthcare institution today. The success of the patient and family-centered care dynamic depends on the ability of healthcare organizations to deliver high-quality interactions at the most reasonable cost possible.
Cisco Collaboration technology enables Healthcare organizations to create in-person interactions that result in a better patient experience and satisfaction. They do this by providing:
- Tools for remote patient access
- Delivery of accurate and timely messages to patients and families both in and out of the healthcare setting
- Enhanced communication amongst staff within the organization
Employee interactions and customer experiences within any organization depend heavily on the quality and reliability of the network they are connected through. SMP can work with you to design, deploy and manage a network for hundreds or thousands of devices that is both secure and dependable. SMP networking solutions incorporate the latest technology with industry best design techniques to meet the current and future needs of your organization. SMP will evaluate your existing infrastructure, provide recommendations and offer a solution that is technology installation tailored to your budget, schedule and organization’s goals.

Quality of Service (QoS)
New applications may enhance business processes, but stretch network resources. QoS is an industry-wide set of standards and mechanism to manage network resources and ensure high-quality performance for critical applications. Implementing QoS can provide secure, predictable, measurable, and assured services for multiple applications—including delay-sensitive and bandwidth-intensive applications—by managing delay, delay variation (jitter), bandwidth, and packet loss in a network.
When deploying healthcare collaboration solutions, Cisco IOS QoS classification, scheduling, provisioning, and management tools can satisfy all requirements for voice, video, and mission-critical data applications. QoS can also ensure that in the event of a worm or DOS attack, networks stay available. SMP and Cisco can provide the tools and the expertise to configure and optimize QoS in networks for mid-size and enterprise level organizations.
Cisco Unified Communications Manager
As the backbone of the Cisco Collaboration portfolio, Cisco Unified Communications Manager (UCM) is a call control platform that delivers the right experience to both fixed and mobile collaboration endpoints. UCM offers services, such as presence, messaging, voice, video and web conferencing, along with integrated mobility features. The tools offered through UCM enable you to extend video capabilities to numerous endpoints through a single, unified communications infrastructure. From the individual desktop to the telepresence-enabled room, UCM is highly scalable, reliable and delivers a great return on investment.
