Vision Technologies Awarded Passive Optical Network Installation


February 6, 2017 – Vision Technologies, Inc. (Vision), a leading network integrator, has been awarded a contract to provide Columbia Basin Health Association (CBHA) with a Passive Optical Network (PON) infrastructure to support their mission in their new Clinic building in Othello, Washington. CBHA has a strong tradition of expanding access to healthcare services and providing comprehensive and high-quality services to the communities they serve.

CBHA relies on technology to enable care delivery via Electronic Medical Records(EMR), Electronic Dental Records (EDR), digital radiology for medical and dental, Pharmacy Management Systems (PMS), pharmacy robotics and more. CBHA selects and leverages its technology purchases not only to enable care delivery but also to support business processes, to recruit and retain staff, to promote patient satisfaction, and to provide the business intelligence measures needed for effective decision making. The installation environment begins with the 78,000-square foot clinic that is currently under construction. Ultimately, it will extend to residential units, a wellness center, and two retail business sites, all to be located on a 20-acre campus in Othello, Washington.

In addition to the applications listed above, the PON system will support building automation, access control, security cameras, on-demand video education, satellite TV, VOIP phones, fax and voice-quality WiFi. Vision is providing a Tellabs PON solution supporting over 1,300 Ethernet ports throughout the new clinic. Vision is also providing the network management software application and training for the CBHA staff. The system design will enable future growth and flexibility for any Ethernet application.

CBHA’s Doug Thompson explained, “We were seeking a partnering relationship with a company capable of designing and implementing a high-speed, highly reliable GPON network in our newest clinic, currently under construction. Preference was given to companies that can also train CBHA’s technical staff on system operation and provide upper tier support on an ongoing basis. We are very pleased to be working with Vision Technologies on this project.”
