Health Level-7 (HL-7) standard protocol used for medical data systems
Hospital Information System information system used throughout the hospital, include direct patient care inforamtion, billing systems, and reporting system
Local Area Network (LAN) Small area networked with a series of cable or wireless access points so that the computer can share information and devices on the same network
Mesh Topology Network that has multiple pathway interconnecting devices and networks
Network 2 or more object sharing resources and inforamtions, interconnected computer, terminals, and servers connected by communication channel sharing data and program resources
Network Bridge created so that larger networks can be segmentd or broken up into smaller networks to reduce traffic within that network
Network Hub central meeting point where cables from several devices can come together n share information throughout the group. simple boxlike deivce with several wires port aviable to recieve n pass on data to various pieces of equipment,
