Broadband connectivity supports cost-effective patient care through telemedicine, speeding the transmittal of electronic health records (EHRs) and digital images.

Frontier Audio and Video Conferencing enables physicians, nurses, and staff members to schedule virtual office visits with patients in rural areas who may not have easy access to health care facilities. These remote consultations are easy for the staff to use and help patients get the timely assessments and diagnoses they need. Conferencing solutions are also ideal for assisted living facilities, where residents can reduce the negative impact of their physical separation by easily connecting face-to-face with family members and friends.
Medical professionals, staff members, patients, and their families will experience fast, reliable, end-to-end, Wi-Fi service with Frontier's Managed Wi-Fi Anchor Tenant solution. Depending on your facility's needs and budget, we'll design the coverage to include indoor and outdoor areas, nurses' stations, patients' rooms, labs and surgical suites, waiting rooms, and more. Plus, with the increased usage of mobile medical devices, Wi-Fi can help health care professionals provide more accurate and timely patient monitoring.
