7 Steps to Design an Effective Wireless Network in Healthcare

3

Healthcare systems require a consistent, reliable and strong wireless connection to support real-time patient care and monitoring. Connectivity is required in all locations accessed by patients, including bathrooms and showers. The multitude of factors and variation in structural composition across these locations present significant challenges for wireless engineers providing this service.

It’s important for wireless engineers to understand best practices for the design, deployment and validation of wireless services that are compliant with the IEEE 802.11 Standard for Wireless Networks and that support constant, real-time patient telemetry and Voice over IP in an enterprise healthcare environment.

A U.S. hospital recently achieved the successful implementation of a Philips telemetry running over 802.11 on the 5 gigahertz band. The hospital has since been held up as a gold standard benchmark by Philips to show that it is possible to use real-time patient telemetry over 802.11 when the proper design protocols are followed and the WLAN is properly tuned.

Wireless engineers looking to design a similar system should carry out the following instructions, which are intended for new wireless network constructions, but also can be adopted to wireless network upgrades.
