The Connected Real Estate for Healthcare framework from Cisco: buildings designed with a standards-based IP network to deliver and manage the hospital's services more efficiently and at a lower cost. Unified communications converge voice, video, and data capabilities over building information networks with video conferencing, telemedicine, wireless and remote access, and other collaboration and productivity tools. Converging security applications over the building information network allows you to use your existing IP infrastructure for video surveillance, access control, visitor management, and fire safety. The IP infrastructure can even support the monitoring, control, and visibility of your varied building systems, such as HVAC, lighting, transportation, and energy management.

The operational, energy, and maintenance costs drop.  

The hospital IT group can deliver innovative new services that improve caregiver productivity and enhance patient care.

Right now, 60 percent of staff time is spent taking care of environmental requests. When patients can use an automated self-service information utility to control the temperature and lighting in their own rooms, staff can spend more time for true clinical work and improve patient response and care.

The Health Care Interpreter Network (HCIN) of Northern California is a system of shared remote interpreter services operated by Northern California public hospitals. Running on a Cisco Medical-Grade Network, this integrated solution of voice, video, and data communication offers hospital staff instant access to trained interpreters. The network currently routes approximately 3500 videoconference and phone calls per month, with an average response time of 22 seconds.

Hospital staff must track a wide variety of devices that are constantly being moved. By one estimate, hospitals cannot find 15 to 20 percent of the devices they own. Of the eight hours needed to perform preventive maintenance on an intravenous (IV) pump, seven hours are typically spent locating the pump. An average 400-bed healthcare facility can save from $400,000 to $500,000 annually by reducing short-term equipment leases, loss prevention, fewer purchases, and labor savings.
