OhioHealth is passionate about finding innovative ways to use technology to improve the health of those it serves. One of the top five largest health systems in America, it’s made of 12 member hospitals, more than 50 ambulatory and surgery centers, plus primary care and specialty practices.
Rapid, continuous growth at OhioHealth keeps physicians and staff in high demand. To meet this need, telehealth technologies like remote patient monitoring and evaluation—complete with two-way audio and video—play a pivotal role. Telediagnosis and telecollaboration help staff to provide a cohesive continuum of care among disparate facilities, departments, and providers. These capabilities are critical to preventing medical errors as patients transition among care providers—the time when 80 percent of mistakes occur.
Connectivity is engineered not only to meet regulatory requirements, but to meet our own OhioHealth requirements as well.
To provide outstanding patient care that connects the continuum and integrates emerging technologies, OhioHealth chose Spectrum Enterprise. OhioHealth’s advanced Stroke Network and electronic ICU run over Spectrum Enterprise fiber Ethernet Private Line (EPL) and Fiber Internet Access. These fiber circuits power remote 24/7 ICU monitoring, and empower OhioHealth specialists to deliver advanced, collaborative medical care.
