Children’s Memorial Hospital Of Chicago Installs InnerWireless® System To Enable Complete Medical Mobility
CHICAGO and RICHARDSON, Texas – Children’s Memorial Hospital of Chicago has installed the InnerWireless® broadband distribution system to empower clinical applications and interpersonal communications, including pagers. The hospital selected InnerWireless because of its ability to support a full range of wireless applications via a single distribution infrastructure. The system is a valuable solution supporting the hospital’s goal of adopting technology to help reduce medical errors and further improve patient care.
Children’s Memorial was among the first hospitals to install InnerWireless, which also is in use in some of the country’s most recognizable buildings, including the 2.8 million-square-foot Time Warner Center in Manhattan; New York City’s Rockefeller Center Concourse; and the New Charlotte Arena, future home of the NBA’s Charlotte Bobcats. Several hospitals across the country are in various phases of installing the InnerWireless system; Children’s Memorial went live with InnerWireless in August 2004.
Installed in large commercial buildings, hospitals, campuses, convention centers – any institution or commercial enterprise – the InnerWireless system provides uniform wireless coverage and facilitates the rapidly expanding number of wireless applications and devices. The InnerWireless system acts like a wireless utility, supporting a full range of wireless applications and services, including wireless LANs, personal communications services (PCS), cell phones, PDAs and two-way radios for property maintenance and security.
The hospital taskforce determined that monitoring medication at the point of care was required, but realized that placing hardwired PCs at every bedside was neither practical nor economically feasible. Therefore, the team pursued a thin-client solution to be powered by wireless technologies.
