WiFi comes to hospitals

United Press International berichtet über ein Chicagoer Krankenhaus, das auf RFIDs und WIFI setzt. „If you look at healthcare, one of the things they are doing now is trying to use wireless for tracking patients and people.“ Hospitals today are using wireless networking technology for an array of applications, from pharmacies to operating rooms, to WiFi-enabled lab tests, taken by technicians at a patient’s bedside and relayed to a central database in the hospital. „This is called point-of-care testing. That enables efficiency. They’re cutting footsteps out of the work day, and saving time and money on labor.“ Zuerst gesehen auf Wireless-Doc
