Abstract/OtherAbstract:
As medical informatics increasingly places demands on computer resources, healthcare organizations need to plan for and develop fully integrated, enterprisewide communications networks. Healthcare systems should invest in upgradable equipment that is compatible with industry standards and select specialized contractors familiar with the infrastructure required for healthcare networks. The potential for downtime should be minimized through remote diagnostics that assist repair capabilities. The fully integrated network should be supported by staff who are provided with ongoing training and overseen by a knowledgeable network manager.
