8 Things to Know About Enhancing Healthcare Connectivity

In our recent webinar, “The Growing Demand for 5G in Healthcare Facilities,” our team of experts shared insights on the importance of having robust wireless network infrastructure throughout healthcare facilities, particularly with the advent of 5G technology.

Here are eight key takeaways from the discussion to guide healthcare leaders in optimizing their connectivity solutions:

1. 5G Will Transform Healthcare

5G technology is set to revolutionize healthcare facilities by offering faster data transfer rates, enhanced mobile connectivity, and the capacity to handle more connected devices simultaneously. This advancement is crucial for supporting real-time data access, telemedicine, and other digital health services.

2. Invest in the Future

Proactively investing in advanced network technologies positions healthcare facilities to take full advantage of future technological innovations. This foresight can improve patient outcomes, operational efficiencies, and readiness for next-generation healthcare delivery.

3. Custom Network Solutions Improve Connectivity

Healthcare facilities, often dense and spread across large campuses, face unique challenges in network design and implementation. Tailored solutions that address the specific architectural and operational needs of each facility are critical for effective connectivity.

4. Security & Compliance Are Essential

With the increase in data breaches and cybersecurity threats, protecting healthcare data  is more important than ever. Advanced network solutions like 5G can improve security measures that protect sensitive patient information and comply with healthcare regulations.

5. Continuous Monitoring & Support Are Key

Continuous monitoring and support are vital to maintaining network reliability and performance in healthcare settings. Ongoing management quickly addresses any issues that arise so that connectivity remains uninterrupted and secure.

6. Network Solutions Should be Scalable

As healthcare technologies evolve, so too should the infrastructure that supports them. Facilities must consider network solutions that offer flexibility and scalability to adapt to changing healthcare demands and technological advancements.

7. Choose the Right Funding Model

Network funding models, including CapEx and subscription, vary based on factors such as upfront and ongoing costs, carrier participation, and scalability. Selecting the right approach involves balancing these financial and operational considerations to meet both immediate needs and long-term goals.

8. Partnering with an Expert Matters

Collaborating with an experienced partner like Airtower Networks, who understands the intricacies of healthcare connectivity, can significantly alleviate the burden on facility leadership and technology teams. Airtower designs and builds custom network solutions that help ensure clinical needs are met today and tomorrow.
