This Cisco Meraki case study features, Narayana Hrudayalaya (also known as Narayana Health or NH). NH is one of India’s largest hospital networks, operating 21 hospitals across the country. Providing advanced levels of care in over 30 specialties, Narayana is committed to delivering affordable, high-quality healthcare services to a broad population by leveraging its economies of scale, skilled doctors, and an efficient business model.
- NH’s assessment revealed key shortcomings that were contributing to various application and network performance issues plaguing the hospital staff. For instance, the company lacked a standardised network architecture across its facilities, and many were relying on outdated networking equipment designed for smaller, less complex organisations.
- In many of the group’s hospitals, poor network connectivity, especially between floors, was a serious issue that was hampering communication and efficiency. It was clear from these and other findings that Narayana Health’s existing network infrastructure needed to undergo a major transformation to be able to meet the constantly evolving needs of its staff and, most importantly, enable it to deliver an optimal patient care experience.
After evaluating several competing options, the company selected Cisco Meraki MS and MR as its switching and campus wireless solution, and Kalyx Networks Private Limited as its implementation partner, as the combination was the best at meeting Narayana Health’s evolving requirements across all of its properties.
