Do you love summer thunderstorms? Does the sudden temperature drop fill you with excitement?

Do you also HATE the sudden blackouts, the torrential downpours, and the internet outages that often follow?

Maybe the hectic weather wouldn’t be so bad if you could count on your internet to stay on! With our ever-more connected hardware and applications, it’s hard for any function of your office to continue without the internet. Even if the power is on, having an internet outage can grind your practice to a halt on both the patient and staff side.

According to a 2019 Ponemon Institute study, it costs a healthcare facility an average of $740,357 per downtime incident.

Internet outage can contribute to IT downtime, and gravely affects your practice’s ability to serve patients, send results to other offices or labs, or process appointments and billing.

One of the best ways to prevent internet outages in your practice is to switch to fiber optic internet. While copper co-ax internet only comes with a promise of “best effort” by your ISP to repair damage and restore connections, fiber comes with a 99.99% guarantee. Not only will your rarely experience prolonged downtime, your office will also benefit from faster upload and download speeds, which will increase efficiency and probably please your staff!
