Utah Cancer Specialists Improves Patient Care And Streamlines Operations With Comcast Business

Stocks in this article: CMCSA CMCSK

Comcast Business today announced that Utah Cancer Specialists (UCS), Utah’s largest community-based oncology practice, is using Comcast Ethernet and Business Internet services to connect its 12 locations, supporting the group’s primary physicians and mid-level practitioners. The network solution from Comcast Business allows UCS to quickly transfer large, high-resolution radiology files crucial for patient care and diagnosis, electronic medical records, faxes and billing information between locations as well as to and from their centralized data center.

Utah Cancer Specialists has been providing care for patients suffering from cancer for over 15 years, offering diverse expertise in medical oncology, radiation oncology and hematology. The practice is committed to treating patients’ physical conditions, while also providing support for their emotional and spiritual needs. The organization currently has 12 locations along the Wasatch Front including a data center and administrative office, nine clinics and two large cancer centers. Each day, 250-300 patients visit UCS’s clinics for treatment, many of them coming in multiple times per week.

Prior to working with Comcast Business, UCS depended on dedicated T1 lines from another provider, but found the cost and 1.5 Mbps of bandwidth to be limiting as their needs expanded. By switching to Comcast’s Business Ethernet and Internet services, the organization increased bandwidth and achieved significant cost-savings. With patients able to get treatment at different locations, Comcast’s wide area network solution allows UCS to quickly transfer high-resolution radiology files and patient records between locations so physicians always have access to a patient’s up-to-date diagnosis and treatment information. In addition, the high-bandwidth connection to the UCS data center allows backup and disaster recovery processes to be carried out when needed instead of scheduled for off hours due to the limited bandwidth. The faster Internet access also allows UCS to provide Wi-Fi access for patients and family while they are in the waiting room.
