In the realm of healthcare, technology has become an indispensable ally in the mission to save lives and improve patient care. The integration of modern technology, combined with relentless medical research, has propelled us into an era where Health Information Technology (HIT), Electronic Health Records (EHR) and data observability are no longer mere innovations but fundamental necessities. However, this technological reliance comes with an inherent challenge—ensuring the unwavering reliability of critical healthcare systems.


The Essence of High Availability (HA):

At its core, HA is a straightforward concept that underpins Service Reliability. It involves two or more similar computers or servers, with one serving as the primary production processor while the others act as backups, consistently updated in near real-time. System software such as ZIFTM manages the replication and monitoring process on both servers. When the primary server experiences a malfunction or requires maintenance, users seamlessly transition to the backup server, all orchestrated by ZIF’s intelligent automation. Any connections with other networked systems are swiftly re-established on the backup server, thanks to ZIF’s real-time monitoring capabilities. Once the primary server is back in action, users and networked systems are smoothly redirected through a process known as “failback” all with the support of ZIFTM. This architectural resilience, enhanced by ZIF’s proactive measures, grants healthcare practitioners the confidence to rely on automated systems without hesitation.


Critical Healthcare Systems: The Imperative List:

Not all healthcare systems are created equal in terms of criticality. Typically, only those directly impacting patient care fall into this category, with the hospital’s code paging system being a prime example. Nevertheless, several healthcare systems deserve a spot on the “cannot go down” list:


Patient Record Systems:

Patient record systems are the backbone of modern healthcare, and any downtime can have severe consequences for patient care. ZIFTM ensures the resilience of these systems through its proactive approach. By continuously monitoring system performance, ZIFTM identifies potential issues long before they can disrupt operations. It employs predictive analytics models to foresee bottlenecks and address them before they escalate into problems. This ensures that patient records are always accessible, enabling healthcare professionals to provide timely and accurate care.


Nursing Resources:

With nursing staff stretched thin, the efficient use of clinical automation tools is critical. ZIFTM plays a vital role in this scenario by maintaining the uninterrupted operation of these tools. It monitors the performance of devices used by nurses, such as PDAs and clinical workstations, and ensures they are always available. This minimizes disruptions, allowing nurses to focus on patient care without the worry of technology failures.


Care Management Protocols:

Automated care management protocols are essential for delivering evidence-based treatment. ZIFTM understands the importance of these protocols and ensures their continuous operation. By monitoring the systems that support these protocols in real-time, ZIFTM identifies and resolves issues before they impact patient care. This guarantees that healthcare professionals can rely on these protocols to provide the best possible treatment.


ICU and Anaesthesia Systems:

In the high-stakes environments of Intensive Care Units (ICUs) and anaesthesia administration, where every second counts, ZIFTM serves as a vigilant guardian for essential IT systems. These systems include patient monitoring equipment, data recording, and communication tools in ICUs, while anaesthesia relies on various IT components for drug delivery and patient safety. ZIFTM proactively monitors these IT systems, swiftly addressing potential issues to ensure uninterrupted operation and service reliability. This critical support enhances patient safety and bolsters the efficiency of healthcare delivery in these life-sensitive settings.


Point-of-Care Instrumentation:

Point-of-care devices connected to EHR systems are vulnerable to interruptions in system operations. ZIFTM acknowledges this vulnerability and takes proactive measures to prevent disruptions. It monitors both the EHR systems and the connected devices, ensuring they operate seamlessly. In case of any issues, ZIFTM initiates swift resolutions, minimizing the risk of errors caused by manual interventions.


Automated Medication Administration:

Medication errors are a significant concern in healthcare. ZIFTM contributes to patient safety by ensuring the uninterrupted operation of systems that use barcoding for medication administration. It monitors these systems and takes immediate action in case of downtime, reducing the burden on nursing staff and eliminating the potential for errors.


Case Documentation:

Automated case documentation improves efficiency and reduces errors in healthcare. ZIFTM recognizes the critical role of these systems and guarantees their continuous availability. By closely monitoring these systems, ZIFTM prevents disruptions and ensures that clinicians can document events and issues without delays or errors.


Physician Order Entry:

Physicians rely heavily on automated order entry systems for efficiency and safety. ZIFTM understands the importance of these systems and ensures their uninterrupted operation. By employing predictive analytics and real-time monitoring, ZIFTM identifies potential issues that could affect order entry and take proactive steps to prevent them. This ensures that physicians can continue to use these systems with confidence, reducing the risk of errors.
