In your day-to-day life, you probably don’t think much about cabling infrastructure. But without it, the world around us would look entirely different. This is especially true in doctors’ offices and hospital settings. There, cabling infrastructure saves lives, every single day.
For a hospital to function efficiently, technology must be reliable and fast. In today’s world, doctors, nurses and physician assistants also need access to wireless networks wherever they are. Installing wireless access points at various strategic points is a critical step in this process.
If your hospital has a strong wireless network, equipment in any room can be customized to the needs of each individual patient. Not only does this save time, it prevents the need for moving people from room to room. In addition, wireless medical technology brings about increased mobility and allows providers to program and monitor systems––and therefore their patient’s data––from anywhere, even remotely.
Having wireless access for patients in the waiting room or hospital bed also provides a measure of comfort. Patients can contact their friends and family members, keeping them updated and informed of their status. It’s also important that your patients can make phone calls whenever necessary. That starts with establishing a strong wireless signal everywhere throughout a hospital.
In addition to these factors, investing in wireless technology prevents accidents and injuries. Think about it: when you implement wireless technology, there’s no risk of tripping over cords or unplugging life-saving medical equipment. Now that’s important.
Wireless technology in a hospital powered by a strong cabling infrastructure allows the network to be robust and reliable for physicians, patients and everybody who works on every floor. Implementing 100% wireless coverage throughout your medical facility without dead zones provides a positive patient experience.
Ready to get started? Take the first step and invest in a site survey today. During a site survey, we look for potential dead zones and identify fixes that need to be made. We can also make recommendations for improving data speeds and sharing at your medical facility.
To make the transition to a consumer-oriented health care model with the technology required to achieve these goals, hospitals need to have full collaboration between decisionmakers and IT professionals, especially when it comes to cabling infrastructure decisions. And with so much health care becoming a wireless service, having a reliable, high-quality cabling infrastructure is vital.
