HSCN Connectivity

HSCN Made Simple
HSCN provides a reliable mechanism for end users to access and exchange electronic information, anywhere, anytime and across any device. It also provides a reliable, efficient and flexible way for health and care organisations to access and exchange electronic information, while at the same time reducing costs and complexity.

HSCN network connectivity boasts many advantages over N3 connectivity, it is:

  • Faster – N3 was considered slow and legacy; HSCN delivers more modern services such as VDI and VoIP. Also, there will be no longer any need to wait for changes to the network core to allow organisations to exchange data.
  • Cheaper – HSCN is cheaper than N3, and UKCloud Health will pass on the savings back to the NHS
  • Flexible – HSCN has multiple network providers providing marketplace competition, and enabling UKCloud Health to source the best provider for HSCN connectivity.
