Wireless Connectivity Powering the Competitive Edge in Healthcare
No longer is healthcare simply about healing sick patients in the confines of the office or hospital. Growing competition driven by changes in public policy and the “consumerization” of healthcare means finding the competitive edge requires extending care and connectivity beyond the boundaries of traditional healthcare facilities.
While mobile healthcare promises to create massive efficiencies and a transformed patient experience, wireless networks require constant management. When the network is always in motion, consistent physical access to equipment is impossible and when the network is deployed in vehicles, issues with temperature, vibrations, and electricity may result in sensitive networking hardware failure when it’s needed most.
