Cisco Approach to Telehealth

Telehealth, according to the Health Resources Services Administration, is the use of electronic information and telecommunications technologies to support long-distance clinical health care, patient and professional health-related education, public health and health administration.1

Cisco’s robust interoperability, security, and video technology have put us at the forefront of telehealth.  In addition to facilitating remote clinical services, Cisco video technologies are also used in remote non-clinical services, such as clinician training, administrative meetings, continuing education, and contact centers.

Over the years, our teams have seen a recurring theme of limited deployments in a small handful of areas across healthcare organization.  These limited or siloed deployments typically lack a unifying strategy or architecture to be able to accommodate a secure telehealth deployment at scale that includes proactive care, big data, population health management, and a contact center. Cisco can help your organization to establish a vision and architecture strategy for deploying a telehealth program.

TelehealthThis new white paper, Cisco Approach to Telehealth, describes how Cisco can help you define:

  • Strategic imperatives that your telehealth program will address
  • Financial and reimbursement goals
  • Revenue and workflow outcomes
  • A go forward strategy for a telehealth platform that can scale to fulfill needs from multiple service lines

We look forward to helping you connect people, processes, data and things in ways that weren’t possible, or even imaginable, in healthcare before.

The Rise in Healthcare Cybercrime

Cybercrime1January this year witnessed the largest healthcare breach to date in which the personal records of 80 million individuals were compromised. It also marked an apparent change in focus from attacks on delivery organizations to healthcare payers. Last week two additional health insurers reported that they too had been hacked, resulting in the possible compromise of a further 11.25 million personal records. In a period of less than 3 months, the US has seen over 91 million records and personal identities stolen from healthcare insurers alone.

The health insurers appear to have been the target of highly sophisticated cyber attacks perpetrated from China, which involved the use of advanced persistent threats (APTs) and spear phishing. This allowed them to gain administrative credentials that were used to exfiltrate stolen data via the use of common cloud data services.
