Summary: Healthcare Collaboration Customers Shine at the Olympics

- August 6, 2012 - 0 Comments

Great Britain’s Olympics opening ceremony highlighted many of their natural treasures from past and present, including their healthcare system.  Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) was prominently featured, along with the National Health Service of which the hospital is a part.  Both are Cisco Collaboration case studies.

In a fast-paced environment where urgency and efficient collaboration can mean the survival of a child patient, GOSH in greater London has invested in a Cisco intelligent network and solutions from our Cisco Collaboration Solutions portfolio including video, unified communications and customer collaboration. The National Health Service also has an interesting story about their combination of cloud and on-premise solutions from across the Cisco Collaboration portfolio to reduce travel, improve productivity and promote greener IT. As with most healthcare organizations, both want and truly need technology to save their staff administrative time so they can spend more time serving their patients and saving lives. The quality of care also depends on connecting staff to essential knowledge, media and communication when and where they need it.
