INNOVATIVE APPLICATIONS FOR A NEXT-GENERATION HOSPITAL BASED ON A COMMUNICATION NETWORK BY SOITRON

The hospital in Michalovce is different from other health care facilities in Slovakia in terms of its organization, layout, and the technology used. Such a healthcare facility fitted with vast amounts of technologies unparalleled in Slovakia would not be able to operate without an exceptionally stable and secure high-availability computer network. To secure their communication infrastructure, the Svet zdravia hospital network has chosen Soitron, because it was able to meet strict quality criteria and offer a competitive price and guarantee extremely fast project implementation.
