Healthcare has evolved beyond business as usual. The people who touch healthcare —patients, family members, clinicians, administrators, and IT—expect more than they used to. They are demanding increasingly sophisticated digital interactions, including remote consultations, ubiquitous connectivity, network automation, and location-aware mobile services – just to name a few.

In order to deliver these quickly evolving new healthcare capabilities, a hospital’s network needs to not only be modern enough to support these solutions but also have security embedded end-to-end. The ability to sense and understand the context of everything that is happening across all applications, users, and devices makes a difference in seamless care supported by IoT and connected health. And the impact could be huge when it comes to protecting patients and data, streamlining clinical workflows, and personalizing the patient experience.
