Health system adopts wireless utility
Carilion Health System, which serves western Virginia and parts of West Virginia, will install InnerWireless’s medical-grade wireless utility in three of its 10 health-care facilities. The product provides 802.11 coverage for existing clinical applications, hand-held devices and PDAs. It also can support the use of multiple wireless services, applications and devices, including Wi-Fi and PCS/cellular.
Carilion plans to use the utility to improve two-way radio communication for its security personnel, enable voice-over-IP phone use and pursue radio frequency location solution options for asset tracking, according to InnerWireless.
