The Consumerization of Healthcare IT

Healthcare wireless networks are rapidly changing, thanks to mobile device proliferation and the increasing use of clinical mobile applications at the point of care. Nearly all organizations today support mobile devices, yet fewer than 10% are truly aware of how many or which smartphones or tablets are connected at any given time.

Clinicians demand easy access, yet IT requires authentication, authorization, and control. Please join Gary Rollie, Director of Healthcare Solutions with Extreme Networks, as he discusses:

  • Balancing clinician demands for easy access with IT’s need for control
  • Clinical policy assignment based on name, user type, device type, location, time of day, etc.
  • Metrics for measuring security, performance, and usage by user
