Healthcare is currently experiencing many technological advances with an emphasis on mobility. Major hospitals now regard wireless networks as a prerequisite for their operation. IPTel Solutions have installed WLANs to clinical grade in many sites and have the understanding and experience to design to the highest requirements.
The support provided for clinical Integrated Electronic Medical Records (iEMR) and biomedical devices are currently areas of high interest. Patient monitors, EEG machines, infusion pumps and X-Ray machines all use wireless technology and are portable, requiring the wireless network to be built to the correct specification.
Newer services, such as the ability to track the location of devices or provide wayfinding information to staff and patients, enhance the business case for clinical WiFi. Messaging is used extensively in hospitals, so the ability to provide users with a phone, soft client for their mobile phone, or a staff tag on which to receive messages can prove to be invaluable.
