Connected Healthcare Takes off in Turkey
With all the noise surrounding efforts to reform the United States health system it is easy to forget other nations are also modernizing healthcare.
One example of this is in Turkey, where the government has put Cisco technology at the center of its healthcare improvement plans with a Medical-Grade Network pilot at its largest public-funded education and research hospital.
A feature posted today on http://newsroom.cisco.com gives a flavor of some of the many benefits that the Kayseri Research and Training Hospital has seen since adopting the Connected Health technology, following advice from the Cisco Internet Business Solutions Group (IBSG).
And a video on the Cisco channel of YouTube shows graphically how the new IT systems could not only save paper, overheads and administrative time, but also improve the delivery of life-saving information to doctors caring for patients with critical conditions.
