4 barriers to tech adoption in the healthcare industry

Are you equipped to deliver the healthcare of the future? In our new blog series, we explore key areas of consideration to help you make the decisions that will improve the lives of patients, doctors, and nurses.

Whether it’s the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT), virtual reality, AI or blockchain, new technology promises to revolutionize healthcare from the ground up.

To stay competitive, implementing these technologies is no longer optional for providers, it’s a requirement. But, saying and doing are two different things; digital transformation is not that straightforward.

As we discussed in our previous blog, Can your cabling support the demands of the future, wireless networks – and the infrastructure working in the background – are a necessity to support the latest medical technology. Added to that are four huge challenges for healthcare providers looking to adopt new tech.

Interoperability

In her 2018 study published in BMC Health Services Research, Anabel Castillo, a researcher from Carnegie Mellon University, found that “without interoperable systems, the full potential benefits of adopting electronic health records cannot be achieved,” adding that “patient-centered treatment requires collaboration, coordination and accountability.”

Whether it’s patient-facing technology or back-office operations like supply chain, finance or HR, the ability for systems to ‘talk’ to each other are crucial to the adoption of new technologies. This demand isn’t solely on healthcare organizations, of course. Third party software providers need to fall in line, allowing data and information to flow between their solutions and others. Interoperability needs to be friction-less to truly improve operational efficiency and patient experience.

Upkeep of old technology

Digital transformation is not an overnight solution, it’s a constant evolution, driving organizations towards innovative ways of working. This means new technology inevitably must work side by side with the old, and legacy systems still need care, attention and investment to keep them operational in the short to medium term.

Often these older products still work well and have been integrated into the facility’s workflow over several years. As time goes on, however, the original vendor may no longer support the tool or develop patches for it. As systems get older and support dries up, it becomes more expensive to keep these systems fit for purpose. Investment in new tech, then, also needs further investment in the old.

Culture

Tech solutions don’t replace staff, they’re there to help them. But all too often, transformational decisions are made from on high and cascaded down to a front line that hasn’t been involved in any decision-making or testing of new tech.

In Deloitte’s “Future of risk in the digital era” report, Carey Oven, a partner with Deloitte Risk and Financial Advisory, says: “Technology is definitely a part of digital transformation, but unless leaders can ‘win hearts and minds’ throughout the process, efforts can stall or not be as successful as they could be.”

Perhaps the biggest challenge for digital transformation in healthcare is getting staff to embrace new solutions and use them to their full potential. Fail, and that investment will barely see a return.

Cabling

There is no digital transformation without physical infrastructure, and the cable plant of many hospitals is simply unable to handle the demands of new healthcare technologies.  

Organizations won’t enjoy the full benefits of expensive software and hardware upgrades if they don’t consider the strength of the cable plant that supports them. A transformational program can leave hospitals with cost overruns and quality of service issues if attention isn’t paid to both the physical and digital demands of the changes.

Choose an agile, future-proof partner

The partner you choose for your infrastructure design will directly impact the success of your future technology investments. As time goes by, technology vendors may no longer support products that have been integrated into your facility’s workflow over the course of several years. This can result in a ‘rip and replace’ situation, which can be costly and highly complex.

Panduit and their fully vetted and trained ecosystem of installers, integrators, and specifiers have collaborated with numerous organizations to achieve near-perfect reliability, which is critical in healthcare environments.

Trends Shaping the Future of Connected Smart Buildings: Sustainability

Part 3: Insights from industry expert Casey Talon

In the final part of our three-part blog series with building innovation Research Director, Casey Talon of Navigant, we explore the challenges of implementing today’s technology in yesterday’s buildings and look to the future of sustainable smart buildings.

There is a rapid uptake of wireless, what impact does this have on the energy efficiency of a building?

Wireless has a lot of appeal to building owners because of the low cost, low to no disruption installation. The sheer volume of wireless devices projected to be deployed in commercial buildings with IoT begs the question of how to manage the energy requirements in light of energy efficiency expectations for sustainability.

Why is it vital to have an infrastructure that seamlessly delivers data and power, in a size that makes the most of the available space?

The vast majority of commercial buildings we will use in the next couple decades are already built; in many cases, these buildings are old and operating without cohesive smart building solutions. So, while PoE has a value proposition in new construction, it can be a critical component of infrastructure design in retrofits. PoE also offers higher data transfer rates than wireless and data reliability without the concern of interference that can come with using Bluetooth or cellular. Data velocity and reliability are important considerations in the smart building context and especially for solutions deployed in facilities that support critical operations such as healthcare or financial services. Operational savings are another benefit of PoE that can help drive investment in retrofit scenarios, particularly in budget-constrained markets like healthcare and education.

What trends are you seeing in energy efficient technologies being created and adopted by commercial and residential buildings?

Navigant Research has been exploring the future of smart buildings in the broader ecosystem of digital transformation and our view of the emerging Energy Cloud. Optimizing systems within the building to perform in coordination with other onsite resources such as solar, EV charging systems, or energy storage is the next frontier for the smart building.

This next stage is positioned to shift the building from an energy end use to an energy asset, from a cost center to a low carbon profit generator.

PoE lighting controls, as an example, allow for load shedding that can be used for a demand response program. Utilities can engage building owners to shed their energy use during peak periods that risk grid outages in exchange for financial incentives.

Additionally, DC power systems are gaining popularity as distributed energy resources (DER) become more widespread.

Benefits of sustainable smart buildings

In addition to collecting actionable data, creating a better customer experience, and a more productive workspace, sustainability will continue to drive business gains in a connected enterprise. In a recent article, Navigant explores how companies can use sustainability to strengthen financial resilience: How Climate Risk Mitigation is Changing Corporations.

Panduit would like to thank Casey for taking the time to chat with us and helping to inform our readers about the trends shaping the future of connected infrastructure – few things move at the speed of innovation, and we hope Casey’s insights help prepare you for future technology trends that will shape the layout of smart buildings.

Trends shaping the future of connected smart buildings

Part 1: Insights from industry expert Casey Talon

In order to keep up with the latest infrastructure technology trends, we spoke with Casey Talon, a Research Director at Navigant and consultant specializing in market research. As the first part of a three part series, we ask Casey about the true value of today’s most intelligent infrastructure.

Navigant Research’s Building Innovations program focuses on the design, construction, and maintenance of efficient commercial and residential buildings. As Research Director, Casey manages Navigant Research’s Intelligent Building Management Systems research service. This service is focused on assessing market opportunity for data-driven tools for energy and operational efficiency in commercial buildings, go-to-market strategies for intelligent building solution providers, and other major market dynamics.

Question for Casey

 As buildings become more automated, new systems and technologies are finding a home on the network. In what ways does your research suggest this will optimize building functions?

Casey’s response

Best practices in network design and cybersecurity are critical elements of a successful smart building strategy. Deploying individual smart systems that run in isolation can only deliver so much benefit. Facilities management is transformed when systems are integrated, data is accessible, and analytics deliver real business insight and direct automated improvements.

IT/OT convergence is a necessity for smart building success. The market is still maturing when you consider the people side of the equation—this is where the significant challenges lie. A secure, seamless, and future-proof network requires cross-domain knowledge, a bridge between legacy facilities and IT teams. Many building owners and managers struggle with this change management process. There is a lot of room for new partnerships and services to support the conversion of commercial facilities into smart buildings.

Today, building owners look to two core value propositions for investing in smart buildings: optimizing system performance and customizing the occupant experience. New applications translate data from diverse building systems, occupancy, weather, energy, and IoT and building equipment into actionable information on strategic business challenges.

Smart building solutions offer a unified approach to deliver energy savings and other business goals such as tracking customer flow in a store, occupancy rates for rented offices, and time for locating shared assets in healthcare to maximize asset value; these are often challenges that may be even higher priority than saving energy.

There is an important link between optimized building systems and the occupant experience. Optimized performance delivers metrics that satisfy demands for sustainability and occupant-centric operations that increasingly represent brand, thereby connecting investment in smart building solutions to the bottom line. Loyal customers equal sales, happy employees equal productivity, and healthy students equal school success.

Benefits of smart buildings

Advantages of smart buildings go beyond energy savings and optimized building operations. For many organizations, the true benefit of a highly connected building is a more satisfying customer experience, higher employee productivity and satisfaction, better student performance, or even improved patient health.

Trump and his impact on the healthcare structured cabling market

Healthcare, specifically the Affordable Care Act (ACA), was a central topic healthcarethroughout the recent U.S. presidential campaigns. Though we can’t say how just yet, Donald Trump’s election will likely bring change to the U.S. healthcare market. Trump campaign promises pointed to repealing and replacing the ACA with something completely different; however, as time goes on, it is expected that at least parts of the ACA will remain.

Over the past several years, the U.S. healthcare industry has been consumerized through initiatives like the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA). These initiatives changed the way that physicians are paid from a volume-based system to a value-based system. This has forced providers to reduce the cost of care while improving quality and patient outcomes. These cost reductions and the concern for the quality of patient care is likely to continue, and perhaps become even more important during the Trump administration.

Based on what we have heard thus far, analysts predict the following for health care under Trump’s policies:

  • There will be more of an emphasis on price transparency for medical procedures and other healthcare costs.
  • The Medical Productivity Index* (MPI) is expected to increase by 2% by 2026.
  • MACRA is likely to continue.
  • We will see greater consumer responsibility for healthcare costs, creating a more competitive market.
  • The number of uninsured people will increase by as many as 25 million, with conservative estimates hovering around 20 million.

Impact on the Healthcare Structured Cabling Market

What do these things mean for the healthcare structured cabling market? We can expect continued growth in the healthcare industry; however, it may look different than over the past decade.

  • Large hospital new construction is likely to decline. At the same time, hospitals are likely to continue investing in technology. This technology will deliver operational efficiencies and improved precision and diagnostics, which will drive down costs.
  • The amount of data will continue to increase, and speed of retrieval and analysis will be more important than ever. This forces the need for high-speed cabling and large-scale storage, especially as hospital groups continue to acquire independent facilities, creating more centralized systems.
  • Healthcare IT and facilities groups will have less budget to work with while being expected to deliver the highest quality of service to the organization.

Regardless of whether the ACA (also known as ‘Obamacare’) is repealed or not, it appears that the emphasis on value-based care will continue to grow. As structured cabling professionals, it is our responsibility to guide the healthcare community towards solutions that are both cost-effective and deliver the resilience and performance that a medical environment demands.

————————————

*The Medical Industry Leadership Institute developed the Medical Productivity Index to measure the productivity of insurance-financed medical care. The MPI analyzes the health status achieved by a patient relative to the amount of resources invested in that patient’s care. The higher the index number, the better the return on investment. Care through Medicaid produces a low index value, whereas health savings accounts generally produce the highest index value.

Helping Customers Achieve LEED Certification

shutterstock_1215845381Everyone is talking about sustainability these days. We’re doing more than just talking about it.

Our world headquarters, built in 2010, is a LEED Gold Certified building and is just one example of our commitment to healthy, energy efficient, and sustainable business environments.

Today, we’ve taken that commitment one step further, becoming the first manufacturer to be awarded Environmental Product Declarations on copper jacks and cabling. These EPDs, awarded by UL Environment, help your projects become LEED certified.

It’s only been recently that the US Green Building Council adopted LEED version 4, which allows cabling systems to be counted toward LEED points. So, what do you need to know if you’re looking for a cabling system that complies? Below we’ve outlined some of the most common questions that we get.

Q: What’s an EPD/HPD?

EPD = Environmental Product Declarationcertified_epd_green

HPD = Health Product Declaration

EPDs and HPDs are both issued by a third-party after they verify reports supplied by the manufacturer. EPDs disclose potential environmental impacts of a product, while HPDs disclose what a product contains and how it impacts human and ecological health.

Q: What products have EPDs and HPDs?

A wide variety of materials used in the construction of buildings carry these declarations.

The Panduit EPDs cover 18 types of RJ45 jacks and 22 different copper cables. The offering includes:

  • Unshielded and shielded applications
  • Category 5e, Category 6, and Category 6A
  • Riser and plenum flame ratings

HPDs are pending for the same group of products.

Q: How does it work? If I install a product with an EPD, do I automatically get LEED points?

It not quite that simple! LEED requires the installation of at least 20 different products that have third-party certification to qualify for one LEED point. These products must be from at least five different manufacturers. So, when you install at least four different certified products from Panduit, that counts as one portion of one point for EPD and one portion of a second point for HPD. Different levels of LEED certification require different numbers of points to qualify.

Q: Can’t I get EPDs and HPDs with all cabling systems?

No! Panduit is one of a handful of cabling manufacturers that have received EPDs on copper cabling, but we’re the ONLY one to receive EPD certification on RJ45 jacks. So, if you’re looking for an end-to-end solution that can help you earn LEED certification, Panduit is your only choice!

We’d be happy to share more information on our EPDs and HPDs. You can get information on our Sustainable Solutions page, or from Customer Service.

Innovation 2.0

At Panduit, we take pride in finding new solutions to old problems (and new onescim_generic, too!). And, when we  work with the best customers around to help them find solutions to their problems, that’s even better. Last week, Cabling Installation & Maintenance presented their annual Cabling Innovators Awards. And, for the second year, several Panduit projects were recognized as being the best of the best. Without further ado, I’m proud to present a snapshot of our honorees and their cabling innovations.

Purdue University

CI&M Chief Editor Patrick McLaughlin (left) and Group Publisher Alan Bergstein (right), present a Gold Cabling Innovators Award to (from left) Tom Kelly, Director of Business Development, Enterprise Solutions, Panduit; Daniel Pierce, Telecommunications Design Engineer, Purdue University; and Dennis Renaud, Vice President, Enterprise Solutions, Panduit.

Purdue embarked on a project during the 2014-15 school year, to update and expand their wireless coverage on campus. For today’s students, wireless access isn’t a luxury, it’s a necessity. Information Technology at Purdue tackled the upgrade project in two phases: One to add coverage in residence halls; a second to add density in academic buildings and common areas. The residence hall project caught the judges’ eyes for innovation, as the university relied on Panduit’s surface raceway and 28 AWG patch cords, along with Cisco 702 access points to deliver wireless throughout the residence halls. The raceway/patch cord/AP solution provided the wireless performance they needed while keeping the aesthetic already in place for their wired connections.

The Purdue wireless project was named a “Boilermaker” Gold honoree by the CI&M judges.

Global Insurance and Financial Services Firm

Panduit’s small-diameter cabling is at the heart of the solution installed by a global insurance and financial services firm, to optimize the space in their telecommunications rooms. Switch harnesses with 28-AWG patch cabling has provided four main benefits:

  1. Time: the quick-connect feature cuts installation time from about an hour per RU to 20 minutes per RU … and we all know that time means money!
  2. Space savings and cable management: Because of the small size, more cabling fits, saving rack space for equipment rather than cable management; it also simplifies cable management, making moves, adds, and changes simple.
  3. Single length: The company uses one length of patch cord everywhere, which eliminates ordering and installation errors.
  4. Standardization: Every telecommunication room at all of their sites are deployed with the same footprint, making installation and management easier for everyone involved.

CI&M’s judges awarded this project a gold award.

CenterPoint Energy

Texas-based CenterPoint Energy presented a Texas-sized issue: they wanted to unify their IT physical infrastructure platforms across their internal business units, and within each facility. Multiple vendors, multiple sites, and multiple cities equals multiple headaches. CenterPoint standardized its data center operations around a Panduit Intelligent Data Center solution, including Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) software, hardware, and infrastructure offerings. This solution was end-to-end Panduit: fiber and copper cabling, dual cable pathways, PDUs, overhead patching, cooling optimization, grounding and bonding, and thermal containment. “We required a solutions provider that could deliver comprehensive technological advancements while helping us ensure business continuity,” said CenterPoint’s Tom Tanous, senior manager of Business Reliance and Data Center Management.

Top 6 Things to Know About the New Category 8 Cabling Standard

The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) has published ANSI/TIA-568-C.2-1, which supports 25, 40 and possibly even 50GBASE-T over Category 8 copper cabling. As you consider high-bandwidth applications, here are some key things to keep in mind.

1) How far can you go?

Category 8 channel reach is 30 meters, much shorter than the 100-meter channel of traditional categories of copper cabling.

2) It’s a familiar face!

Category 8 has the familiar RJ45 interface, so jacks and plugs are compatible with the same patch panels, switches, and other equipment that users are familiar with today.

Category 8 products

Category 8 will be deployed as shielded twisted pair construction only.

3) Shields up!

While other category cabling uses unshielded or shielded twisted pair construction, Category 8 will only be shielded cable construction.

4) Where, oh where can it be?

Category 8 is designed for the data center. More specifically, it is designed to support 25G and 40GBASE-T switch-to-server links, a typical fiber-optic application. It will provide the most cost-effective and easiest-to-deploy 25G and 40G links within the data center. The 30-meter reach makes it challenging for Category 8 to be used to deliver higher bandwidth to the desktop or in other Enterprise applications in large-scale deployments.

5) Can Enterprise play, too?

Due to the reach limits of Category 8, Panduit recommends installing Category 6A today for all Enterprise applications. Category 6A supports up to 10GBASE-T at lengths up to 100 meters. Investing in a Category 6A infrastructure for your Enterprise space is the smartest and most cost-effective option for long-term optimal performance of your network. Panduit’s Advanced MaTriX Category 6A products have the additional advantage of allowing optimal heat dissipation and performance with next-generation Power over Ethernet (PoE++).

6) The next step …

Manufacturers are actively developing the next generation 25G and 40G products. Panduit expects to have its product offering – including cabling and connectivity – in 2017, to coincide with the launch of active equipment that will require the higher speeds.

Panduit has already received third-party approval on it’s upcoming Category 8 solution. Learn more here.

Panduit Sees Growth in Stagnant Structured Cabling Market

The structured cabling industry showed a downturn in 2015, according to recent research results shared  by BSRIA. The organization noted a difficult global market for the industry, showing a 3% decline, to $6 billion dollars for 2015. They cited a strong U.S. dollar, lower oil prices, and delays in project timelines as the primary market drivers causing market contraction.

A bright spot in the market analysis is the continued growth of Category 6A in structured cabling. This growth is fueled by a growing need for increased bandwidth, and an upward trend to converge separate legacy protocols onto standard Ethernet protocols. The ongoing evolution of wireless communication standards, which require more than 1 Gb of bandwidth to wireless access points, are compelling IT staff to realize that enterprise-wide multi-gig applications are already here.market growth

Panduit has achieved market growth rates for Category 6A that exceed the BSRIA market assessment and we continue to see strong growth for Category 6A in our target markets globally. End users who install our MaTriX solution benefit from improved alien crosstalk, smaller cable diameters, and the best thermal performance in the industry, a critical factor when Power over Ethernet is part of the installation.

Educated end users recognize that the time for smart infrastructure investment is now.

The convergence of separate systems into a single IP network raises the relevance of the network infrastructure. It is at the core of why our customers continue to choose Panduit and drive our sustained growth in a market with strong economic headwinds.

Whether you are looking for a solution to support the convergence of your networks, or simply want to add wireless access points to your space, Panduit would like to help. Contact your sales rep or distributor today, and we will help you identify the perfect solution.

Protect Equipment and Infrastructure with the New Break-Away Adapter

Panduit Break-Away Outlet Application

The Break-Away Adapter from Panduit

Panduit has introduced the Break-Away Adapter, an innovative solution that releases under force to eliminate tripping hazards, protect expensive equipment, and prevent damage to infrastructure.

The Break-Away Adapter attaches to a standard copper patch cord, and then plugs into either a piece of equipment or an RJ45 outlet. When pulling force is applied – such as when a medical cart is rolled away from the wall in a hospital room – the adapter releases. This prevents equipment being pulled off carts or tables, or jacks being pulled out of the wall, and avoids costly damage.

The adapter meets TIA standards for Category 6A performance, and is backward compatible to also work with Category 6 and 5e channels. It is rated for 750 release cycles, meaning the cord can be reconnected many times and maintain its performance.

Panduit designed the adapter for the medical community, where equipment is often wheeled between patient rooms. However, the Break-Away Adapter can be used in any environment where portable equipment is connected to an Ethernet port, such as conference rooms and classrooms. In hospitals alone, the cost associated with falls adds up. One recent study found that 30-50 percent of falls in hospitals resulted in injuries, which adds 6.3 days to the average hospital stay, and costs $14,000 per fall. Adding the Break-Away Adapter to equipment on medical carts eliminates one of the tripping hazards that can lead to these falls.

“Even as wireless use is growing, many customers are looking for a solution to a very real wired issue,” said Dennis Renaud, vice president of Panduit Enterprise Business. “The Break-Away Adapter is a simple solution that can prevent expensive accidents. This is a great example of Panduit innovation at work, solving real problems in the workplace.”
