Impacts of Healthcare Applications on WLAN Mobility
Mobile applications ― such as electronic medical record (EMR) technologies, voiceover-wireless communication, picture archiving and communication systems (PACS), and device location-tracking ― can reduce overall healthcare costs, improve patient safety and streamline the patient experience. However, these applications have unique requirements that stress wireless LANs in different ways.
WLANs are the often-underestimated strategic resource that provides the foundation for the success of any mobile initiative.
This paper will address how to build and manage a solid WLAN foundation that protects healthcare organizations from poor application performance, security vulnerabilities and compliance issues.
