The future of healthcare is being driven by innovation and digital transformation, with a heightened focus on open-standards interoperability and distributed ecosystems.    While the acceleration of digital technologies, IoT, the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) and medical device utilization has been beneficial in driving more informed care delivery and greater access to care, the introduction of more devices on the network creates increased risk across the threat landscape. Keeping up with cybersecurity threats has always been a challenge, but today the speed at which new thr ..read more

Powering Critical Connections for NICU Babies and their Families

by Sarah Reuter

After welcoming a new baby, the last thing that a parent wants to do is to leave the baby in the care of someone else. But that’s often the situation for parents and families of newborns in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Due to the nature of care and the NICU environment, parents and family members cannot always be with the baby 24/7. They may even miss critical milestones or updates if they need to step away from the NICU for work, to care for other children or even to get some much-needed rest. Today at IWK Health in Halifax, Canada, that’s not the case. IWK’s Chez NICU Home progra ..read more

This post is authored by guest contributor Professor Vishaal Kishore, the Executive Chair of the Cisco-RMIT Health Transformation Lab The recent report of the Australian Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety tells us two critical things. First – something systemic is going on in aged care: the elements of the system are not working together to produce optimal outcomes. Second – the issue is one of respect: our system is not treating individuals the way that they ought to be treated. Our challenge is to find a way to make the Australian aged care system simultaneously more connecte ..read more

Workplace Transformation in Healthcare

Today’s healthcare environment looks very different than it did just a few years ago. Healthcare is no longer delivered exclusively inside the four walls of a care setting, which enables better access for patients and a more efficient experience for clinicians and administrative staff. Technology can be used to more easily schedule and triage patients, collaborate amongst clinicians and care providers both onsite and off, and follow up virtually with care at home. A flexible work environment allows often stressed and burnt-out clinicians to take much-needed physical and mental breaks, which is ..read more

by Paul Oliver

Virtual care comes in many forms and the term covers a multitude of use cases and workflows. We find that providers can deliver better remote care, at lower cost, when they standardize on a virtual care platform with the ability to support all core use cases. At Cisco, we’ve taken a full-stack platform approach that leverages the power of our Webex service, together with software and hardware deployed across the cloud and the premise, to deliver the best possible end-user experience and scale across the many use cases of virtual care. So, what are some of the use cases for virtual care and how ..read more

Health equity is defined as the ability to fulfill our human potential in all aspects of health and well-being. It goes beyond access to care. Health equity encompasses clinical, mental, social, emotional, physical, and spiritual health, and is influenced by social, economic, and environmental factors.1 Healthcare organizations have a critical role to play in health equity, as they are not only responsible for delivering care, but can also be advocates for change within the clinician community and the populations in which they serve. Studies estimate social, economic, and environmental “driver ..read more

Reluctance to Embrace Technology in Healthcare
Cisco » Healthcare

This post is co-authored by Declan Hadley Would Florence Nightingale have embraced virtual care? The answer would probably be yes, as she was a technological innovator in every sense – driving cleanliness in hospitals, promoting healthy eating to improve healing, and using data to reduce infection rates. Yet, today in healthcare, we see a slower rate of technology adoption in comparison to other industries, despite a rich history of clinical innovation.1 Assessing the gap can be challenging and many healthcare organizations are tempted to look to peers for a comparison. However, it’s virtual c ..read more

Two years into the pandemic, governments worldwide have started to relax their social distancing policies. However, healthcare systems continue to be severely impacted by ongoing infections and a growing backlog of patients waiting for planned treatments. While vaccines have been extremely successful in reducing hospitalization and mortality rates, infection control policies continue to affect our hospitals’ regular operations. In many respects, COVID-19 created a perfect storm. It came at a time when many healthcare systems were already severely stressed, dealing with an increasing burden of ..read more
