IT Infrastructure Resiliency: Reliability for the Healthcare-From-Anywhere Model
Updated: May 8

A large component of this is telehealth, which requires communication technology and MEP infrastructure that supports the need for reliable infrastructure, similar to traditional in-person patient care.
