Covenant Health uses Picture Archiving and Communication Systems (PACS), highly-sophisticated archival equipment that centrally store medical test images and data.
With six hospitals ranging in size from fifty to 540 beds, Covenant Health needed an affordable array of powerful network systems to expand its connectivity and deliver new-generation PACS and healthcare applications.
Covenant Health deployed the 3Com Switch 7700R modular LAN switch at its data center to obtain the Gigabit Ethernet performance needed to support its PACS resources. The platform links to 3Com SuperStack 3 Switch 4900 switches, which in turn connect to the organization's server farm.
Covenant's hospital LANs now extend to over 10,000 devices, from PCs to MRI machines, in patients' rooms, laboratories, lounges, and officesallowing staff to access clinical and management applications when and where need. Doctors and nurses quickly and easily update patient records, share images and diagnoses, and administrators can easily schedule appointments, manage billing and accounts payable, and ensure medical supplies are fully stocked.
