Optimize your network to support patient-engagement apps and programs.
Keeping patients healthy, out of the hospital and managing their conditions at home is an important goal for healthcare providers across the industry. So is the need to connect and communicate with patients and care teams—at any time and from virtually anywhere. Digital healthcare technologies – such as remote patient monitoring devices, mobile patient-engagement applications and remote clinical collaboration can help you achieve those goals—but only if you have the infrastructure to support them.
With a robust and scalable network, you can provide innovative new digital health capabilities to people and groups at every point in the healthcare delivery chain—from patients and physicians to insurers and their members as well as pharmacists. Reliability and speed are key to supporting mobile healthcare solutions. And Verizon’s award winning 4G LTE network with LTE Advanced, the largest in the nation, can put you on the right path.

Enhanced network yields speed, innovation.
Healthcare provider improves care coordination with better network, integration, mobile and cloud services.
A large healthcare provider is challenged with managing multiple network service providers, addressing inefficient bandwidth use and improving roll-out time for new digital health services and patient-facing applications. The inability to rapidly deploy sites and applications is negatively impacting patient experiences and hindering care coordination across the organization.
Working with Verizon’s Professional Services, the provider is able to understand its current networking life cycle, pinpoint organizational goals and create a roadmap for getting there. Plus, by incorporating Managed SD WAN and Virtual Network Services, the company is able to bring its public and private networks together into a virtualized solution that improves network performance. And with Wireless Private Network, the provider is able to give caregivers easy, secure access to patient records, allowing it to respond to patient needs quickly. The company can now better manage network demand, and, with Secure Cloud Interconnect, it can also prioritize third-party applications to drive a secure and seamless member experience with a broad range of programs, like remote patient monitoring and telemedicine. The reliability, performance and speed of Verizon’s award-winning 4G LTE Network with LTE Advanced extends the customer’s network and allows it to provide on-the-go communication using the latest mobile devices for business.
