With the health care industry’s shift to value-based pay, it’s more important than ever to ensure that the patient experience is one of the best. Patient expectations go far beyond medical treatment to include their overall experience. In response, the health care field is experiencing growth in wireless technologies; expansion of network access to manage, monitor and communicate with patients; and adoption of electronic medical records, wireless wearable devices, and telemedicine. All of these advancements stress networks and challenge network design.


Join us to learn how to develop a patient-friendly technology experience and explore the connected hospital. Discover how proper infrastructure solutions unlock performance and underpin reliability in the technology that patients and professionals rely on. We will walk through planning in-building wireless strategies to increase patient, visitor and staff satisfaction, improve operational efficiency and avoid future connectivity challenges.

We’ll share how Elmhurst Memorial Hospital’s construction project needed technologically advanced systems to improve patient care, attract and retain leading physicians and reduce the need for future infrastructure upgrades. Hear how it successfully achieved nearly perfect network reliability and was able to quickly scale its systems to accommodate additional users, computers, and new innovative networked systems such as a nurse call system, video conferencing, radiology systems, security cameras, and a robotic surgical system and more.


What You Will Learn:

  • Trends driving the need for the latest technologies in hospitals and other health care facilities
  • How to plan and implement a network infrastructure that supports health care technology for today’s — and tomorrow’s — facilities.
  • The importance of the cabling system for deploying wireless technologies — including powering the wireless access points.
