GE healthcare announce availability of innovative solution for supporting wireless medical telemetry

AZDEL : 25 August, 2007  (Technical Article)
MobileAccess Networks, an enterprise wireless innovator, and GE Healthcare announced today the availability of Wireless Medical Telemetry Service on GE's Enterprise Access solution. Developed to help hospitals seamlessly bring their entire portfolio of wireless services and applications together on a single infrastructure, GE's Enterprise Access enables healthcare organizations to harness the power of next-generation wireless computing throughout their facilities.
MobileAccess and GE have co-developed a WMTS solution that enables hospitals to operate GE's ApexPro(R) CH wireless telemetry patient monitoring directly over Enterprise Access. With ApexPro CH wireless telemetry integrated into the Enterprise Access solution, hospitals have a unique opportunity to deploy telemetry on the same infrastructure as their other wireless services and applications.

'Enterprise Access ensures that hospitals are able to seamlessly and cost effectively deploy a wireless network capable of supporting not only voice communications and data applications, but also wireless healthcare applications,' said David Ataide, vice president and general manager of GE Healthcare's Monitoring Solutions business. 'Wireless telemetry is an increasingly critical element of caregiver productivity and patient care. By extending WMTS support to GE's Enterprise Access solution, GE Healthcare is helping to make the hospital of the future a reality today.'

In hospitals, communication is fundamental to decision making. With Enterprise Access, hospitals no longer need to install parallel, standalone infrastructures to support their clinical workflows. Combining the strength of MobileAccess technology and GE's broad portfolio of wireless clinical products, GE's Enterprise Access provides healthcare organizations a multi-use, highly-adaptive and easily-maintained wireless solution that extends voice and data application access throughout the hospital enterprise, regardless of the wireless device used. This enables medical teams to deliver increased clinical and information technology productivity through improved communication across the entire campus.

'Today, wireless is more than just a communications and information sharing tool, it's also an increasingly important part of quality care and the overall patient experience,' said Ataide. 'Whether enabling hospital personnel to review patients' medical records on a wireless laptop as they move throughout a facility, or allowing physicians to view real-time patient data on a PDA or Tablet PC no matter where they are, Enterprise Access is changing the face of healthcare. The availability of ApexPro CH wireless telemetry on GE's Enterprise Access provides hospitals with a unified approach to wireless communication and productive workflow.'

Leveraging MobileAccess' Wire-it-Once(TM) technology, Enterprise Access can accommodate virtually all of a hospital's wireless needs on a single infrastructure while giving them the flexibility to easily and cost-effectively add services and expand coverage as their wireless requirements evolve. In addition to this new telemetry capability, Enterprise Access enables the full range of other wireless services that hospitals use, including 802.11 a/b/g with encryption, Voice over IP, two-way radio, cellular, Wi-Fi, paging, public safety radio, PCS calls and fire/safety communications.
