Wi-Fi Enabled Healthcare
Chapter 6: Mobile Medical Devices
Focusing on its recent proliferation in hospital systems, Wi-Fi Enabled Healthcare explains how Wi-Fi is transforming clinical work flows and infusing new life into the types of mobile devices being implemented in hospitals. Drawing on first-hand experiences from one of the largest health care systems in the United States, it covers the key areas associated with wireless network design, security, and support.
Reporting on cutting-edge developments and emerging standards in Wi-Fi technologies, the book explores security implications for each device type. It covers real-time location services and emerging trends in cloud-based wireless architecture. It also outlines several options and design consideration for employee wireless coverage, voice over wireless (including smart phones), mobile medical devices, and wireless guest services.
This excerpt from chapter 6 looks at the use of Wi-Fi-enabled mobile medical devices in health care settings.
