Automated Systems Design (ASD), Inc., is exhibiting at the 49th American Society for Healthcare Engineering (ASHE) Annual Conference, held July 15-18, 2012, in San Antonio, Texas. The 2012 ASHE Annual Conference is the premier event for healthcare facility management professionals to receive comprehensive educational programming on issues that affect healthcare facility management. ASHE is a personal membership group of the American Hospital Association (AHA).
ASD will be exhibiting at the event Monday July 16 and Tuesday July 17 at booth 1326 to share information about how healthcare organizations can optimize healthcare network infrastructures. ASD specializes in designing and installing reliable, mission critical healthcare network infrastructures, which are often more complex than network infrastructures for non-medical facilities. Non-medical commercial facilities often rely on a single network infrastructure; however, medical facilities usually require separate infrastructures for mission critical systems and non-mission critical technologies. In addition, healthcare network infrastructures also have to be robust because they support multiple systems, including building automation systems, alarm systems, internal communications systems, remote access diagnostic and monitoring equipment, wireless systems, picture archiving and communications systems, and RFID (radio frequency identification) asset management systems. The explosive growth of digital healthcare data has also created an increased demand for reliable network infrastructures to help healthcare organizations remain in compliance with the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act of 2009.
“If not properly designed and installed, network infrastructure systems can cause widespread disruptions that affect daily operations,” said Bob Eskew, founder and CEO of ASD. “The planning and design of a network infrastructure system is important for all organizations, but special care must be taken when it comes to network infrastructure systems in healthcare facilities due to the mission critical nature of services where patient lives are at stake.”
