WiFi for Hospitals & Healthcare
Fast, secure, reliable hospital WiFi is essential in today’s healthcare institutions. Patient care, as well as the wellbeing of everyone working, waiting, or receiving medical attention within the hospital, relies on a high-performance network capable of responding to the unique needs of medical environments.
- Communication. A high-performance hospital wireless network enables patient communication with family and friends, stream media for entertainment, and stay connected to the outside world – all of which increases morale, patient satisfaction, and reduces pressure on nursing and support staff.
- Technology. The use of health-tech is increasing to improve efficiency, eliminate errors, and simplify working practices, and as connected devices rise, so must the capability of your network. BLE devices, and 1:1 devices for doctors are becoming more mainstream in hospitals, clinics and surgeries to move away from record discrepancies, time wasted sourcing equipment on-site, and inaccessible offline information.
- Security. An increase in the use of technology in healthcare environments goes hand-in-hand with an increase in the risks of cyberattacks; it’s no longer a question of whether attacks will happen, but when they will happen. Hospitals handle highly confidential information from health records to social care data, all of which is fundamental to patients whether they’re in the hospital or not. Data breaches have a huge impact on the provision of services, and it’s the role of IT managers to ensure that infrastructure ensures there are no gaps in security.
Patients, doctors, medical staff and hospital equipment all rely on connectivity, and as such it must not compromised by changing capacity, coverage issues, compromised security, interference or cumbersome management systems. Redway Networks are specialists in WiFi for hospitals, offering an end-to-end service that covers surveys, design and installation. Whether you are a small clinic or a large hospital we can help with a healthcare WiFi solution to suit your organisational needs, as well as future proofing for new technologies.
