Upcoming Webinar: Innovations in Healthcare Mobility

In my previous post, “Medical Devices in Hospitals,” I discussed the common challenges healthcare organizations face as convenience for Wi-Fi in hospital environments has become necessary – both life critical and patient critical. As many healthcare organizations find wireless devices outnumbering wired, challenges arise such as how to balance performance, security and access. Should all devices be allowed? How do hospitals prioritize? What changes are needed for the infrastructure to deliver excellent service?

On August 13, we’ll be teaming up with a panel of industry experts to examine the impact of the Internet of Things (IoT) in hospital environments. Join us as we discuss emerging trends in mobile clinical care solutions, best practices for supporting Wi-Fi enabled medical devices and the role 802.11ac is playing in next generation hospital networks. Surely a conversation that shouldn’t be missed!
