Managing Workflow of Staff

Wireless technologies and communication devices prove to be extremely vital in a busy, overworked, and complex working environment of hospitals. Technologies such as radio frequency identification (RFID) can be used by hospital staff to understand as well as improve the workflow. These RFID tags gather necessary data on the movement of the staff, which can then be evaluated to make adjustments in the working processes.

Monitoring Environment as per Requirement

The environment within hospitals, clinical labs, healthcare and medical research institutes frequently need to be monitored and maintained, given that they house sensitive devices, samples, equipment, medicines, vaccines, and even food that require certain temperatures and humidity levels. Wireless devices such as sensors and RFID tags and technologies such as Wi-Fi can be used to track and communicate information on the required environmental conditions and alert necessary personnel if things are amiss.

Keeping Track of Medical Equipment

RFID technology can also be used to keep a track of medical equipment in hospitals. Expensive and highly specialized medical devices and equipment are being used in hospitals and clinical or pathology labs across the globe and tracking the movement and use of these devices at all times is not only time-consuming but also extremely difficult. With the help of RFID tags, it becomes easy to maintain a record of every equipment and device in the premise, making sure everything is in its right place at the end of the day. Apart from the location of the device, it also becomes possible to track the condition or status of the device – whether it is in use or idle, whether it needs to go through sterilization process, or whether it needs to be replaced.

Strengthening Security

Wireless technologies and devices provide superior security in healthcare facilities whether it is for the patients, family members, staff, or equipment.

A good example of the use of wireless technology in improving security in hospitals is that of Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel. The staff members at this healthcare center wear ID badges that are integrated with RFID tags, so whenever a member of the staff enters a patient room, details of that member appear on the in-room screen thereby allowing the patient to identify staff.

Storing and Maintaining Massive Amounts of Data

In the age of healthcare IT and personalized healthcare, hospitals, clinics, and healthcare institutes have become storehouses of huge amounts of data. Storing, maintaining, retrieving, and even protecting this crucial and sensitive information becomes a major priority. This is where wireless technology comes into play.

Use of wireless sensors, real-time visual analytics, real-time locating systems, and Wi-Fi can help mine vast amounts of hospital data, track equipment, organize workflow data, solve resourcing problems, and provide insights into the operations of a hospital.

Some of the leading players dealing in wireless technologies and communications for the healthcare sector are Alcatel-Lucent SA, Hewlett-Packard Company, Vocera Communications, Inc., Mckesson Corp., Cisco Systems, Inc., IBM Corp., Siemens Healthcare, Cerner Corp., Verizon Communications, Inc., Motorola Solutions, Inc., Apple, Inc., Intel Corp., Allscripts Healthcare Solutions, Inc., Qualcomm, Inc., and Philips Healthcare.
