LANCOM WLAN access points – experts in the healthcare market

WLAN devices can only be used in a medical environment if they comply with tightened standards. For example, you must be sure that their electromagnetic emissions do not interfere with medical equipment. Our high-performance LANCOM access points are approved for hospitals and other medical facilities according to EN 60 601-1-2.

Modern patient service

Modern extra services for sophisticated patients

Today, patients no longer simply go to the nearest hospital. They investigate on the web for treatment methods and additional services, and then select the hospital offering the best package. With patient-friendly services, you can promise an atmosphere of comfort and claim a competitive advantage. A WLAN hotspot, entertainment services, or customer-oriented meal ordering ensure high patient satisfaction and give your facility the feel of modernity.

WLAN hotspot for patients – extra service without extra personnel

With a WLAN hotspot, your patients’ stay at the hospital is more agreeable without any additional work for your nursing staff. Thanks to the Smart Ticket function, patients and visitors can easily log into the LANCOM hotspot by themselves. The login data is conveniently provided by e-mail or SMS, without additional work for your employees. And of course the Welcome page of the hotspot reflects the corporate design of your hospital.

Multimedia systems keep your patients entertained

Multimedia applications have become an integral part of your everyday lives. When staying at a hospital, patients not only want reliable Internet access, but also access to other multimedia applications, such as TV, video, music, or telephone. Modern patient entertainment systems are easily embedded into the LANCOM infrastructure at the hospital, effectively saving your patients from boredom. This not only increases the attractiveness of your facility, but also the satisfaction of your patients all round.

Electronic meal ordering – customer-oriented meal planning via tablet PCs

Let your patients compose their meals themselves. Flexible food selection contributes to an atmosphere of well-being in your facility. Electronic ordering via tablet PCs enables custom-tailored meal planning for each patient and a flexible combination of various food selections—without additional work for your staff. Furthermore, it minimizes erroneous and double orders, because the kitchen can react quicker. Your patients are satisfied, and you save costs.

Digital signage – targeted information for patients

Take advantage of digital signage displays as a state-of-the-art information system in your waiting areas or as a guiding system helping visitors and patients to find the ward they are looking for. Thanks to WLAN, you can locate them anywhere in the hospital. The content can be managed centrally or individually in each hospital facility. Digital signage takes all of your important information to exactly where it is needed.

Optimized work processes

Improved quality of treatment thanks to optimized processes

Your aim is to save costs while at the same time improving the quality of treatment for your patients. You can only solve this paradox by making optimal use of the existing resources. An increasing number of medical facilities rely on modern IT solutions to meet this challenge. For example, WLAN networking allows electronic ward rounds or the use of mobile diagnostic devices. Furthermore, securely networked hospital locations can exchange health data, consult experts, and enable integrated treatments for their patients.

Securely networked hospital locations – real-time communication, telemedicine, and integrated treatment

Securely interconnect your hospital locations with LANCOM to establish a basis for exchanging clinical findings, x-ray or CT images, and other health information across multiple locations in real time. Experts at remote locations can be consulted via videoconferencing, so patients can benefit from a second opinion. Secure connections to physicians and rehab facilities allow you to establish integrated healthcare offerings, while ensuring cost-efficient, high-quality treatment.

Electronic ward rounds: Secure access to patient data directly at the bedside

Using a tablet PC or laptop, physicians can securely access patient data stored in the HIS or PACS system. This improves the quality of treatment, since all of the data is available at any time. Furthermore, patients benefit from greater transparency as physicians can explain their findings and therapies more comprehensibly. Examination results are recorded directly at the bedside with no more time-consuming and error-prone manual transfer of data.

Mobile diagnostic devices – avoid expensive multiple purchases thanks to WLAN networking

Arguments for WLAN networking in your hospital include the realization of electronic ward rounds and your patients’ desire to access the Internet. Another advantage is that you can reduce the need to purchase multiple expensive diagnostic devices. Wireless networking allows medical devices to be used in multiple patient rooms and operating theaters in a cost-efficient way. It also saves on the need for expensive wiring and cable sterilization.

LANCOM Wireless ePaper Displays – innovative, radio-controlled room signage for medical facilities

LANCOM Wireless ePaper Displays are radio-controlled and battery-powered. Thanks to their modern design and the fully daylight-compatible ePaper technology, they are a real eye-catcher for innovative applications such as signage of patient rooms or operating theaters. The content of the Displays is always up to date as it is automatically transferred from your calendar system. Patients and nurses can see at first glance which rooms are available or occupied.
