  • Improved patient monitoring. While it may not seem like, monitoring patients is actually very labor intensive.
  • Temperature and humidity automatic monitoring
  • The first obvious area to exploit the power and functionality of Wi-Fi is with connected medical and non-medical devices. This includes smart beds, monitoring devices, and testing devices like MRI and X-ray equipment. When equipped with Wi-Fi, these devices can connect with a central database or system that automatically update patients’ electronic medical records.
  • Wi-Fi offers the opportunity for remote monitoring of patients through portable devices, bringing clinical information directly to the relevant people. Where used, it dramatically reduces errors, saves time and increases efficiency
  • Hospital administrators can also use Wi-Fi to monitor and track key assets such as medical equipment. For example, tagging a wheelchair or other piece of mobile asset can provide administrators with a real-time view of where that equipment is located anywhere throughout the facility. This detailed knowledge helps reduce equipment theft and misplacement. Also, knowing where equipment is being used provides administrators with useful analytics about how the hospital functions.
