Modernization of the entire IT landscape and implementation of wireless technologies without disrupting normal operations.
Hospitals are confronted with increased competition and cost pressure and are constantly forced to optimize their clinical workflows and organizational structures. To make the hospital attractive for patients and qualified personnel, and at the same time operate in an economically efficient manner, the Klinikum Darmstadt in Germany is modernizing its IT and communication landscape.
Facing the challenge of changing the networking infrastructure during the day-to-day operative business of the hospital, the solution makes secure, reliable, and high-performance WLAN available everywhere on the hospital grounds so patients and staff are able to use mobile devices more satisfactorily. At the same time, the solution maintains the highest priority of the protection of sensitive patient data on both hospital-owned and personally owned mobile devices.
