A not-for-profit health care system operating across 5 states including 27 hospitals, more than 35 non-acute facilities and numerous other health, supportive housing and educational services throughout the west coast and pacific northwest.
In a mission critical environment such as healthcare, access to information and resources in a timely manner is crucial. Combined with the need to locate assets quickly, Providence required a wireless design that would support the voice and RTLS solutions being used.
Understanding the healthcare environment and addressing extreme challenges to radio frequency (RF) transmission posed by medical equipment, radiation, and highly reinforced construction is critical to the design process. Taking these challenges into consideration, we delivered a secure, redundant, and scalable design that met mission critical criteria and requirements.
Designed to support data, voice, video, and Real Time Location Services (RTLS), healthcare professionals can access and exchange information regardless of location as well as track assets within meters of their exact location, improving operational efficiencies and patient care.
