GE Healthcare and Sprint have formed a collaboration to provide in-building wireless communications services to hospitals in North America. The new in-building cellular communications network from GE Healthcare and Sprint leverages GE’s Carescape Enterprise Access, a single, universal wireless platform powered by MobileAccess, and includes Sprint handsets, according to the Chalfont St. Giles, U.K.-based GE Healthcare

Carescape Enterprise Access is part of GE Healthcare’s Carescape portfolio, an integrated suite of patient monitoring devices, communications networks, and IT systems that was released in May this year.
