Leveraging technology to support an Accountable Care Organization initiative

It is of particular interest to me to see how technology can be leveraged to help care providers meet legislation requirements and improve care delivery and outcomes at the same time!   One of our most recent examples of how this alignment occurred was through collaboration with Saint Thomas Health as part of the MissionPoint Health Partners pilot. We have been working on this project since 2010 to bring our Cisco HealthPresence Solution to underserved communities in Tennessee.

Cisco HealthPresence is one of the solutions designed to facilitate better and more regular care.

The objective is to help extend the reach of healthcare delivery, simplify healthcare communications, and connect patients with medical providers and specialists to enable examinations in a convenient and efficient manner.

One example would be to have a set top box not only automatically discover and register to its nearest content server but also to provide other information such as location to enable the automatic selection and streaming of the right content for that particular set top box. Network service discovery and registration provides the basic infrastructure to enable a fully automated application deployment; achieving true plug and play deployment.

Look Inside the Cisco Live 2011 NOC to See Amazing Network Management Results

While I was at Cisco Live 2011, I took a few minutes to interview Jason Davis a Cisco Distinguished Services Engineer who was on the team managing the Cisco Live Network Operations Center (NOC).

Jason and his team were engaged in all aspects of the Cisco Live NOC design, configuration, monitoring, and troubleshooting.  I asked Jason to provide some highlights about the amazing results from the NOC and talk about the Cisco Prime network management solutions used in the NOC.

Jason and his teammate Joe Clarke a Cisco Distinguished Services Engineer, also presented a NOC summary session on the last day of Cisco Live. The session presentation is posted on the Cisco Live virtual portal http://www.ciscolivevirtual.com/.
