There are few more complex IP environments in the UK today than in our hospitals. The critical nature of the type of services healthcare provides on a 24/7 basis, demands that the network solutions are always available and totally secure.
We’ve been working with the NHS for literally decades and we’re proud to be providing critical services today to over 30 NHS Trusts among our current customer base. Our experience has helped us to deliver a range of voice, data, security, analytics and mobility solutions that are tailored to the specific needs of modern healthcare organisations.
Mobility has helped to transform the way medical professionals deliver care to patients. The benefits of putting Electronic Patient Records (EPR) in the hands of remote or mobile workers are obvious. Likewise, delivering Picture Archiving and Communications Systems (PACS) securely to any device, anywhere, has benefits in terms of quality, responsiveness and effectiveness of care.
To deliver these applications across a diverse range of devices and locations, and in a manner that fulfils all security and patient information mandates, requires specialist knowledge and experience as well as careful vendor selection from the leaders in the industry.
We’ve been working with a select group of vendors for over two decades, to carefully craft solutions specifically for the NHS and its increasingly intricate networking and data security driven environments.
Healthcare networks are not just complex, they are critical. Telemetry monitors, blood refrigeration units and infusion pumps are just some of the diverse array of IP-enabled clinical devices that are dependent upon network connectivity.
In addition, the uninterrupted delivery of key clinical applications and services such as EPR, PACS and E-Prescribing, are all dependant on the network, both wired and wireless. Without these clinical devices and applications, it is fair to say that the modern hospital struggles to function. In extreme cases, network outages can result in critical departments, such as A&E, shutting down altogether.
"Having worked with Datrix for over 5 years, they have consistently demonstrated a very high level of commitment in assisting and supporting the Trust. They are helpful, dynamic and responsive, and always strive to meet and exceed my expectations."

Reporting and analytics have become essential components of modern healthcare networks; helping customers to better understand how their IT services are provisioned and consumed.
Network monitoring and management tools from vendors such as Extreme Networks help identify where issues in service delivery lie, how key clinical applications are being utilised, the rate at which they are being adopted and more.
For healthcare organisations looking to adopt a paperless (or paper light), strategy, analytics can be used to monitor usage rates, identify any potential barriers to adoption and quantify ROI.
Analytics can also be used to monitor the performance of outsourced suppliers and the services they provide, delivering greater transparency and accountability.
IT has become the ultimate enabler, delivering a wide range of services that have a tangible impact on patient satisfaction and outcomes. Whilst mobility has revolutionised the way clinicians deliver critical care services, technologies such as patient entertainment systems and guest Wi-Fi are also contributing to an improved patient and visitor experience.
