Cisco’s extensive experience of working with healthcare organisations means we have an in-depth understanding of the challenges and growing pressures they face. Working closely with many such organisations, we help them gain maximum benefit from their digital technology investments.
Over the past 20 years, our dedicated UKI Healthcare team has established a strong track record in the successful implementation of many business and clinical led IT projects that support new delivery models, helping improve patient experience, enhance outcomes and drive operational excellence. These include:
- Remote consultations and decision support;
- Reducing ‘Length of Stay’;
- Reducing unnecessary admissions from Nursing and Care Homes;
- High quality and agile Multi-Disciplinary Team working;
- Interpretation/ translation services;
- Improving discharge and referral processes;
- Medical education and training;
- Patient/ citizen experience and engagement
- Agile and remote working.
We believe there is significant scope to expand these use cases to support transformational change programmes across the health and care sector.
While health and care digital transformation offers many benefits to the healthcare sector, Cisco also understands that the advent of new, disruptive technology within the health and care sector also introduces new threats. As organisational borders are blurred and health and social care organisations work more closely together, security considerations become ever more important. Where policy is properly defined and a threat-centric approach adopted, organisations can be most confident that internal and external threats are mitigated.
For the healthcare sector, we believe that advancements in technology are both laudable and vital. However, any such developments must be workable, financially viable and deliver discernible benefits to both patients and staff. Technology successes should be replicated for the benefits of other healthcare organisations wherever possible, in keeping with the following two principles:
- There is no need to reinvent everything
Analysis and measurement of benefits, along with best practice sharing principles should ensure that health and care organisations are able to copy each other’s successes, re-using and
- Secured, common infrastructure should be designed with a platform approach.
Informed by business need, it should support the re-exploitation and re-use of capabilities for multiple use cases.

About Health Passport Europe
The Health Passport Europe platform is engineered to immediately support COVID-19 vaccination deployment and testing, providing an efficient platform to help reopen international economies. The system combines official vaccines and tests administered by healthcare professionals, with advanced mobile technologies. In Ireland, the solution is already in full use with major brands and testing facilities such as Boots, Cara Pharmacies, RocDoc, V1 Medical, Medel Healthcare and more, whereby many thousands of people are already receiving their test results securely and automatically into their Health Passport app every day. Several major nursing home groups such as CareChoice and Hamilton Park are amongst the very first in Europe to vaccinate their staff and utilise the digital health passport technology. The system is in wide use across multiple important organisations for voluntary staff testing. The technology is under immediate review by international Governments such as Bulgaria, South Africa, Portugal, Montenegro, Georgia and many more to support their national vaccination plan. In December, Ticketmaster observed a trial of the technology in Cape Town at a pioneering live music event titled Recharge2020. This has now led to the system potentially becoming the platform to help reopen sports such as the Lions Rugby Tour and events locally. The mobile solution will also be deployed in Portugal in 2021 to greatly support the reopening of tourism, arts and culture in the Algarve. www.HealthPassportEurope.com

About Tele Tracking
Since 1991, TeleTracking has been automating and transforming healthcare operations. More than a quarter of a century ago, we recognized an unseen problem in hospitals: whiteboards and patient placements were managed through hours of phone calls, guesswork, favor trading, and paper based processes. We saw that technology could give time back to nurses for patient care and reduce patient wait times by creating hospital-wide visibility into real-time updates on bed statuses.
It took significant awareness to recognise that there was a patient flow pattern within the continuum of care, and that many of the steps in the flow could be automated and monitored for greater efficiency. At the time, the concept of patient flow didn’t exist. Our experts played a role in defining this discipline and redefining hospital operations.
Healthcare hasn’t stopped evolving and growing more complex. So we never stop exploring, innovating, and turning ideas into solutions that help save lives by eliminating wait times, addressing new complexities, and giving time back to caregivers to do what they do best: Care for patients.
With over 1000 hospitals benefiting from our knowledge and the real time situational awareness delivered by our technology, hundreds of command centers acting as the centre of operations for hospital groups and unique technology making significant improvements in hospital operations TeleTracking continues to be the world leader in Patient Flow.
