Wed, 22nd Nov 2023

The international communications and network solutions provider Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise (ALE) has delivered an optimised, high-speed network solution to the recently named 'Healthcare Asia Awards 2023' winner and internationally recognised health services provider, the Asian Hospital and Medical Center.

ALE provides digital-age networking, communications and cloud solutions with services tailored to ensure customers' success, with flexible business models in the cloud, on-premises, and hybrid. Over 100 years of innovation have made Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise a trusted advisor to more than a million customers all over the world. 

The delivered network connectivity now securely assures high-speed internet facility for the Asian Hospital and Medical Center staff, patients and guests. The hospital, recognised for its superior health services and adjudged one of the premier hospitals in the Philippines, garnered further attention for its progressive infrastructure.

With the demand for bandwidth, high-speed internet, security and services at an all-time high, turning to ALE for a reliable network solution was the logical step. The noted features of this solution not only satisfy the hospital's basic operational needs, like electronic medical records (EMR) access, but also allow for a much more reliable Wi-Fi service, inevitably enhancing the experience for patients and guests.

Edwin Tambeling, Senior Manager for Facilities Infrastructure at Asian Hospital and Medical Center, highlighted the positive collaboration with ALE. He acknowledged ALE's understanding of the healthcare industry and commended them for delivering a cost-effective, user-friendly network solution. The solution ensures high-speed and reliable connectivity, fulfilling the specific needs of the Asian Hospital.

Edwin Tambeling said, "ALE knows the healthcare industry and have delivered a cost-effective, easy-to-operate and easy-to-manage network solution that provides the high-speed, reliable connectivity the Asian Hospital needs."

The benefits extend beyond stable connectivity. Infrastructure investments help keep Asian Hospitals at par with global standards amidst the increasingly digitised healthcare market. ALE's cost-effective infrastructure solution also reduces operational costs and IT downtime, which are tangible benefits for the hospital.

Damien Delard, Vice President of APAC Channels and Head of Sales at Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise, also emphasised the role of such solutions. He points out that one of the tangible outcomes facilitated by the ALE solution is the swift and easy access to information, enabling informed decision-making in patient care. Delard expresses enthusiasm about being a contributor to this impactful aspect of healthcare.

Damien Delard said, "Among the real-world impacts enabled by the ALE solution is the ability to quickly and easily access information to make informed decisions about patient care. We are excited to be a part of that."

With a vision towards continual evolution in healthcare, applications like location-based services are being planned for development. The ultimate goal for these services is to provide indoor navigation, geolocation and geo notifications, further fortifying the hospital's high-tech infrastructure.
