Hospital Improves Patient Care and Clinician Productivity with WLAN
At Memorial Hospital, doctors, nurses and other staff are constantly on the move dealing with patients or administrative tasks. To facilitate high-quality patient care, the hospital decided to deploy a wireless LAN to provide both data and voice access throughout the facility.
After evaluating several vendors and looking at distributed versus switch-based architectures, Weaver selected the Juniper Networks Wireless LAN Portfolio. The instantaneous communication and broad information access enabled by the Wi-Fi phones and mobile laptops has significantly improved the quality of patient care, because it lets doctors and nurses spend more time caring for patients and less time on paperwork.
