PartnerConnect™ helps manage your investment. So your facility can care for patients. Diagnosis and preemptive services help you solve issues before they become problems. PartnerConnect is an innovative feature of the Welch Allyn Partners in Care Services programme that enables remote diagnostics of devices and systems.

Why it’s secure Your connection to Welch Allyn is Firewall Friendly™ – with automated, two-way connections to products deployed at your facility without special firewall rules. All data passed is confidential and made secure with 128-bit SSL encryption. PartnerConnect never enters your network. The PartnerConnect agent only sends service data (not clinical data) out of your network – so you’ll never have to accept any outside connections or open up ports for PartnerConnect to operate – and addresses are never revealed outside the network. PartnerConnect agents are configured with FIPS mode enabled, which imposes the stricter security standards that are often required in government settings. >You call Welch Allyn Partners in Care Technical Diagnostics Support Centre to request assistance Remote connections are only established upon your request and approval, and will always be limited locally at your site.
