The advance of network-connected mobile end user devices providing access to applications across all departments of a healthcare organization is a trend that is far from hitting the top of its curve. Managing and controlling security on these multiple user devices running a range of operating systems and security protocols increases complexity, introduces more risks, and results in even higher costs for healthcare IT groups. Wireless technology is being used extensively in health care, in a wide variety of settings. Wi-Fi coverage must be available from the emergency room to the pediatric ward to the intensive care unit, with each area having different needs and considerations. This tutorial shows IT pros how to plan, implement and manage wireless health networks.
In a world where most doctors, clinicians, and hospital staff, are trending toward using these wireless devices first and their wired devices second, the hospital premises network needs to be ready to support this shift. This doesn’t mean an end to the wired network. Rather, it means that re-balancing the wired and wireless network infrastructures is needed. So how do you evolve your wireless health network to take advantage of new mobile devices and the bandwidth hungry applications that they offer?

The “Intelligent Hospital” showcase is created to help raise the level of awareness and to educate the healthcare industry on the many applications of RFID and RTLS technologies integrated within the clinical scenarios. Visitors to the pavilion see first-hand how these technologies are able to deliver real time data from the patient’s room/bedside to the clinicians smart mobile devices, thus providing care givers with real time visibility of people, assets, and processes. When properly implemented, RFID and RTLS can have a tremendous impact on patient safety and on the quality of care delivered while at the same time reducing operating expenses.
The RFID in Healthcare Consortium (RHCC) is a not-for-profit, subsidiary organization of The International RFID Business Association (RFIDba) and operates under its auspices, guidelines, governance, and by-laws.
