Hartford Hospital deploys 3Com network

Networking provider 3Com has announced that Hartford Hospital in Hartford, CT, has implemented an enterprise-wide network employing the Santa Clara, CA-based firm’s networking technology. A $1.7 million asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) and switched Fast Ethernet network have been deployed, offering speeds 100 times faster than the hospital’s previous Ethernet infrastructure. The scalable LAN/WAN extends to two affiliated hospitals, 33 outpatient remote clinics, and an administrative site.

Hartford Hospital is using the network for a variety of applications, including a medical records imaging system and a PACS. The site is also employing videoconferencing and voice-over ATM, allowing physicians at remote offices and affiliated hospitals to consult regarding patients’ conditions and treatment strategies, according to 3Com.

Other network applications include a laboratory information system, surgery scheduling and inventory software, a clinical data repository, and inpatient billing and financial systems. Outpatient registration and billing is also supported. In future plans, the hospital will add telemedicine capability for remote facilities.
