A burning issue in Healthcare is to increase efficiency and cost-effectiveness by streamlining processes and increasing the use of Information Technology.
Broadband Wireless technology offers some help with the unique challenges of applying Information Technology to Healthcare.
One healthcare breakthrough is the conversion of X-Ray and other images to fully electronic delivery. Electronic display units have finally achieved sufficient resolution to be usable to view finely detailed images. But because of the detail, image files are very large and thus take a long time to transmit over typical data links; and suitably faster links are cost-prohibitive.
One solution to the problem of transmitting large images is to build a private Broadband Wireless network between a hospital or medical center and the buildings of related services nearby. Thus a doctor could examine images from a hospital’s imaging systems in his private practice office rather than physically visiting the hospital. The high speed Broadband Wireless links (speeds of 1 Gigabit per second, and faster, are easily achievable) can also support other Information services such as videoconferences, Voice Over Internet Protocol telephony to connect into a hospital’s Private Branch Exchange (PBX) telephone network, and much more.
