Healthcare Practices Thrive With Reliable Connectivity and Support


Smaller healthcare practices struggle to provide high-quality care while facing enormous regulatory demands. Venice Family Clinic (VFC) in Los Angeles—the nation’s largest free medical clinic—is one such practice. With federal mandates on electronic medical records (EMRs) looming, VFC needed a more reliable network. Its circuits were extremely slow and prone to failure, especially during bad weather. VFC needed fast, resilient connectivity with high-capacity bandwidth to meet skyrocketing clinical data needs.

We need the dependability. We need the reliability. We need the speed.
—Dr. Suzanne Davis, Owner, ABC Pediatrics

Like VFC, ABC Pediatrics (ABC) in McKinney, Texas, needed major upgrades. To care for patients more efficiently, ABC needed faster, more reliable access to EMRs. ABC also needed to ensure ultra-reliable phone service: Multiple phone lines connect the practice with patients, healthcare professionals, insurers, and pharmacies at all hours. Outages could cost patient satisfaction, and potentially degrade quality of clinic care. 

We have much better infrastructure and technologies and more reliable service now with Time Warner Cable Business Class.
—Fred Hornbeck, CIO, Venice Family Clinic

Both VFC and ABC solved their challenges—and improved their businesses—with Time Warner Cable Business Class. Now, VFC has a wide area network (WAN) with secure point-to-point Ethernet Services. This enables ultra-fast, reliable delivery of imaging lab results, medical records, and other vital data. And since implementing TWC Business Class Internet and Phone, ABC credits the “speedy and dependable” solution with helping it to keep patients, and practice, in top form.
