Reliable Connectivity For Critical Medical Applications

A hospital is a complex organization that deals with a great deal of data, including critical and sensitive patient data, in a very challenging RF environment. Much of that data is generated by the thousands of medical devices that operate within a hospital. Over the last several years, there has been a dynamic shift in the types of medical devices found within a hospital. What were once nomadic computing devices, such as a heavy laptop or computer station, have now transformed into small, lightweight mobile devices. Nomadic devices of yesterday did not require constant connectivity nor did they move around frequently. Today’s portable medical devices often are used while the user moves from one place to the next and require a persistent network connection. Therefore, medical devices create an even greater challenge for hospitals when it comes to running persistent applications.

These medical devices, such as tablets, infusion pumps, and even body-worn patient monitors are constantly on the move and require a consistent connection. Critical data transferred on a daily basis include confidential patient records, billing information, and so forth being sent to the Electronic Health Records (EHR). Consequently, it is imperative that each data packet is received and not lost in the massive shuffle of medical data.
