Northside Women’s Specialists Relies on SOLTECH and OPESNET for Secure Wireless Network
SOLTECH and OPESNET Corporation announced today that it has successfully implemented a secure, wireless network environment for Northside Women’s Specialists’ four office locations in the Metro Atlanta area. Serving women for more than thirty years, Northside is one of the leading and most well-established, comprehensive women’s healthcare practices in the Southeast.
“At Northside, medical expertise and state-of-the-art technology go hand in hand with personalized attention for the women we serve,” said Tanya Mack, Practice Manager of Northside Women’s Specialists. “Not only do we continually keep abreast of the latest information and treatments available, we are also passionate about running our practice as efficiently as possible. For us, this passion has translated into implementing the latest medical and information technology to facilitate our daily operations and to provide top-notch patient care.”
As Northside began to focus on how to accomplish their IT vision, they engaged SOLTECH, Inc., an Atlanta-based technology services company, to create an IT roadmap that would help them achieve both their patient care and business goals and objectives.
“To carry out our IT plan, SOLTECH has helped us select, implement and manage the best technology solutions for our operational and service demands,” explained Mack. “They’ve also directed our vendor selection as our technology plans have dictated. Understanding the crucial importance of a stable and reliable information infrastructure, SOLTECH strongly recommended OPESNET Corporation, one of their principal strategic business partners, for designing and implementing our secure, wireless network environment.”
OPESNET Enhances Speed of Information for Proactive Patient Care
The selection of OPESNET as an IT infrastructure services provider reflected Northside’s ongoing strategy of employing information technology for the greater good of its patients, doctors, nurses and staff. The benefits of the partnership were evident as OPESNET worked with SOLTECH to enable Northside’s employees to more seamlessly engage with and proactively serve their patients.
“OPESNET created the network environment we needed to allow our doctors and nurses to use wireless, point-of-care tablets in combination with our new paperless EMR (Electronic Medical Records) system,” commented Mack. “As a result, secure access to appropriate patient information is immediate and personal responsiveness to our patients’ needs is significantly enhanced.”
OPESNET collaborated closely with Northside and SOLTECH to design and implement an industry-standard Cisco® wireless solution that would provide the highest levels of security available, not only meeting but exceeding the privacy and security rules outlined by HIPAA.
“Many of our clients are in the healthcare industry, and providing a secure IT infrastructure that protects the privacy of their patients’ information is critical,” emphasized Tim Reilly, Vice President of Client and Technology Services for OPESNET Corporation. “We were able to apply our extensive HIPAA experience and understanding on behalf of Northside’s healthcare practice, ensuring their patients’ medical data is safeguarded at all times- even with the use of mobile, electronic tablets.”
Mid-Sized Businesses Benefit with OPESNET
Mid-sized businesses without an agile, robust network infrastructure lack timely access to relevant and real-time information they need to plan, manage and scale their operations, resulting in lost revenue, reduced productivity and increased operational costs. By expertly designing and managing the underlying network infrastructure to align with strategic business initiatives, OPESNET helps its clients create a competitive organization that can rapidly adapt to changing business dynamics, adhere to compliance regulations, leverage new market opportunities and provide value to all company stakeholders.
OPESNET partners with select, world-class businesses such as Cisco®, Citrix®, Double-Take® Software, Hewlett-Packard, Microsoft®, Prism Microsystems, SOLTECH Inc., SunGard®, SurfControl® and ThinPrint® to deliver the most reliable, advanced infrastructure possible, thus releasing its clients to focus on the vital objectives of improving business performance, increasing productivity and enhancing their client satisfaction.
