CTAM and the business services arms of several major cable operators are exhibiting at the HIMSS Annual Conference and Exhibition in Las Vegas, where they are showcasing telecommunications technology for the healthcare industry.

Attending cable operators include Comcast Business (NASDAQ:CMCSA), Cox Business, Charter Communications' Spectrum Business (NASDAQ:CHTR), and Time Warner Cable Business Class (NYSE:TWC).

"The typical size for a Picture Archiving and Communications Systems image set - such as an xray - used by radiologists in everyday evaluations is 500 MB," said Steve Rowley, SVP of Cox Business. "The size of these commonly used imaging files tells us clearly that the healthcare industry has significant needs as it embarks on a massive migration to electronic health records and networked data exchange. We will work in lock step with our customers to ensure our solutions meet their ever-growing data demands."

"Supporting healthcare technology will require a strong network backbone to ensure peak performance," said Alexandra Sewell, VP of enterprise marketing, Comcast Business. "This is the foundation to building an effective healthcare IT delivery chain, which ultimately provides quality patient care - something that we're all striving to do."
