InnerWireless Inc. announced today the establishment of a healthcare business unit to develop the Medical-Grade Wireless Utility, a unifying wireless platform and portfolio of services to facilitate adaptive mobile enterprise strategies for healthcare institutions.
InnerWireless has completed the first phase of the dedicated healthcare team that will look at ways to solve the problems of existing wireless installations in hospitals that often required separate and dedicated infrastructures, leading to organizational inefficiencies. The Medical-Grade Wireless Utility architecture will allow hospitals to deploy a variety of wireless applications and devices for real-time clinical communications, monitoring and therapy, as well as wireless building services, on a unified, common wireless infrastructure, InnerWireless said.
Also, the InnerWireless utility includes a variety of services designed to assist hospitals with the planning, deployment and management of their wireless system.
A number of healthcare institutions including Children's Memorial Hospital of Chicago, Mountain States Health Alliance of Tennessee, and the newly opened University of Chicago Comer Children's Hospital are partnering with the company to deliver these objectives, InnerWireless said.
