Spotwave improves provider's staff communication
Universal Health Services' Northwest Texas Healthcare (NWTHS) facility in Amarillo has implemented Spotwave Wireless Inc.'s SpotCell adaptive coverage systems to boost wireless coverage throughout the facility. The Ontario, Canada-based company made the announcement at last week's HIMSS conference in Dallas.  
Spotwave provides adaptive indoor coverage technology that ensures cell phones and wireless devices work reliably indoors where they are being used more often.
According to Spotwave, the NWTHS building is located in an area with limited coverage capabilities and with construction challenges that have impeded reliable indoor coverage. The healthcare provider needed a system that would ensure their doctors were consistently reachable by cell phone to provide them ease of access to physicians to discuss critical patient situations.
Spotwave's SpotCell technology now provides coverage for the hosptial's two wireless carriers that are predominantly used by the doctors in the hospital.
