GE Healthcare deploys first ApexPro FH telemetry system
Memorial Hospital North is the first healthcare institution to deploy ApexPro FH, a spread-spectrum frequency hopping telemetry system from GE Healthcare, on its Carescape Enterprise Access in-building wireless platform.

The solution provides the Colorado Springs, Colo.-based hospital with a single, integrated, wireless platform that enables critical patient data to be securely coordinated, managed and distributed without the communications failures, interference or interruptions associated with un-integrated systems, according to GE.

“As a pioneer in patient-centered innovations, we implemented Carescape Enterprise Access and GE’s medical telemetry system to ensure that we were leveraging the best technology available to support our aggressive patient care objectives,” said Tom Kerwin, chief information officer, Memorial Health.
