Bluesocket, Inc., a manufacturer of products that secure and manage Wi-Fi networks, announced that three additional hospitals have selected Bluesocket to provide secure and manageable wireless LAN solutions that enable their mobile staff to access healthcare information when and where they need it based upon hospital policies. Bluesocket currently has 900+ healthcare, education, hospitality, government and corporate organizations using its wireless networking products.
"Installing a wireless LAN gives us the flexibility of integrating our wireless devices with our existing LAN, in addition to giving us security and role-based policy enforcement, where we can grant access privileges depending on the end user's role in the hospital," said Dennis Strobel, Director of Information Systems for Baptist Health in a prepared statement. Baptist Health is a large healthcare system with more than 80 facilities including medical centers, family clinics, therapy and wellness centers based in Little Rock, Arkansas.
"While looking for a way to improve patient care in our hospitals, one of the most promising technologies that we came across was wireless networking," said Terry Sutter, director of Infrastructure and Operations, Mount Carmel Health in a prepared statement. "Our end goals in implementing wireless networking were to improve drug delivery for thousands of our in-patients, avoid administration-related mistakes, and improve the productivity of our physicians and nurse practitioners."
