Services and products: For more than 20 years, Cisco has been providing healthcare organizations with technology that helps people connect, access information, and collaborate. Its healthcare clients include hospitals, doctors' offices, pharmaceutical companies, medical device manufacturers, and public health departments. Its products and services include infrastructure, unified communications, mobile wireless phones, IP telephony, video communications, telehealth, and cloud computing.

Value to healthcare providers: By improving communication in all areas of healthcare, Cisco's products and services help healthcare providers manage costs, improve care, and provide better access to healthcare services. Deploying unified communications (voice, video, and data) in hospitals requires attention to details such as lead walls in radiology departments and coverage in elevators. Cisco can help overcome these issues. Recently Cisco has also been asked for help with electronic medical records.
