At HIMSS19, Paessler Senior Systems Engineer North America, Greg Ross, along with Senior Software Developer Johannes Liegert, will lead a session titled Monitoring Medical IT: Challenges & Solutions on Tuesday, February 12, 2019 in Hall D, booth 7145 in the Lightning Sessions Theater of the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. During the session, healthcare IT executives ranging from network administrators to CIOs and CTOs will hear about the specific challenges that the holistic monitoring of medical infrastructure presents.

Ross and Liegert will provide information on why healthcare IT executives must monitor not only hardware and software (PACS, HIS, etc.), but special medical interfaces such as DICOM for availability and functionality with regard to medical workflows. They will also provide specific insight on how attendees can address the challenges of acquiring visibility into their medical IT infrastructure in order to identify the impact of availability and performance on medical workflows.

Paessler's PRTG is an all-in-one unified monitoring solution that makes it easy for IT professionals to know what is happening across their entire IT infrastructure, including networks, systems, hardware, applications and devices, at any point in time. With more than 200,000 installations, PRTG is one of the world's leading IT monitoring solutions.

Paessler, creator of the first comprehensive network monitoring solution for healthcare IT networks, will be at booth 5470 at HIMSS19. There, visitors can gain firsthand knowledge about the impact of digitization on the management of patients and quality of care. Paessler executives can discuss what healthcare IT executives should be concerned with as they seek to maximize network uptime given the impact of IoT in healthcare. Paessler executives can also discuss the impact of the newest HIMSS analytics adoption model, INFRAM, to help assess network health to ensure that optimal technology is in place to help improve care delivery.

"Healthcare is undergoing a massive change as the industry has access to a number of different solutions capable of changing the way organizations and caregivers treat patients," said Andrew Cutting, Director of Channel Sales for North America at Paessler. "The common element is the network itself, and the aim is to monitor both hardware and software as well as special medical interfaces for availability and functionality with regard to medical processes. Given this, it's critical that IT guarantees performance by comprehensive IT monitoring of both medical devices and systems."
