Mobility becomes increasingly important in the fields of clinical care and patient monitoring. Many hospitals have already extended their IT infrastructure to guarantee a full Wi-Fi coverage. By that, the new generation of patient monitors is able to transmit vital data or alarms “wirelessly” to the surveillance center. Because this can involve “life-critical” information, an absolutely secure and reliable infrastructure between the patient monitors and the Wi-Fi infrastructure is necessary. For this reason, LANCOM is conducting functional tests together with the manufacturer Philips Healthcare to verify the use of Philips Healthcare mobile patient monitors within LANCOM WLAN infrastructures. The Philipps patient monitoring portfolio provides actionable, care-specific information when and where it’s needed. Philips caregiver mobility solutions deliver actionable, clinically-rich patient information, alerts and trends to your caregivers virtually anywhere, supporting virtual care teams for cost-effective use of resources. Our suite of smart phone and tablet optimized patient monitoring apps mean that access to patient information is never more than a few screen touches away.
