Ceaseless connectivity being the key to unremitting functioning, health centers are now deploying WiFi connectivity on a substantial rate that underlines its efficacy and proven versatile technology. Reckoned as the communication backbone, this advanced internet connection with its multitudinous functionality offers the perfect platform for monitoring and effective administration of the enterprise.

The staggering statistics suggest the sharp increase in the implementation of WiFi in hospitals. As of 2010 almost 500,000 (WLAN) was implemented in healthcare settings that is expected to double to 1 million by 2015.

Remaining Connected to WiFi

The healthcare industry being one of the most promising markets today, advanced WiFi connectivity is indispensable that mitigates the concerns related to the complexity of wireless. Complimented by advanced security mechanisms, unremitting certification network and enhanced performance technology, the connection has proliferated the usage of WiFi enabled devices like smartphones, laptops, notepads, iPads, special medical devices etc. In addition, it offers myriad medical benefits such as:

  • Advantageous to networking of applications, devices, systems and clinicians

  • Offering an interoperable and security enabled environment for reliable performance

  • Ceaseless internet access and electronic communication

  • Elemental to mobility

  • Record keeping of databases of wheelchairs, tablet/mobile computers, smartphones, patient records and effective asset & equipment management

  • Maintaining record of patient flow, clinical staff, rooms as well as clinical equipment

  • Supporting EMRs and CIS (clinical information systems)

  • Delivering optimum patient care, advanced clinical workflow, speedy patient recovery through wearable wireless devices

  • Maximizing the performance and benefits of the health care centers

With healthcare’s increasingly embracing ‘bring-your-own-devices’ strategy and the WiFi dominating the headlines, it’s expected that the technology would soon be ubiquitous in hospitals, accommodating the requisites of all-doctors, patients and visitors alike.
