The Impact of Next Gen Wi-Fi Technology on Healthcare
The mobile healthcare delivery model of 2010 and beyond demands critical business and clinical application performance. These demands place unique requirements on current Wireless LAN (WLAN) systems for the healthcare market. Recent innovations in 802.11 technologies can have a profound impact on improving healthcare mobile application performance and lower the total cost of ownership. Life critical application performance has become an absolute requirement for the healthcare marketplace. A dropped call during a code-blue response or an alert/alarm not being received by a caregiver can impede workflow and result in negative outcomes or sentinel events.
