Hospital and Clinic WiFi
Hospital & Clinic WiFi
Hospital WiFi is not merely essential for modern hospitals, clinics and healthcare facilities, but a good connection is increasingly a requirement of patients, staff and guests to the site. Good access to a wireless network across your entire site can help alleviate a stressful visit as well as improve visitor feedback in the long term. Meanwhile, patients themselves have greater expectations, and wish to be able to stream different media on their portable devices, or to communicate more easily with family and friends. Staff will also need to be able to use many devices to be part of an efficient operation. In addition to this, a robust wireless healthcare solution is required in an industry that is using ever-more sophisticated technology to improve patient care.
With so many visitors and staff on your premises every day, you’ll need a WiFi network that’s built to supply a fast, stable connection. We work throughout the healthcare industry, from private clinics to NHS Trusts, delivering WiFi networks that meet the demands of different users. Contact us today to discuss your hospital’s or clinic’s WiFi needs.
Our custom built WiFi solutions take into account everything from your hospital or clinic’s size, construction as well as the types of devices that will connect to the network. Whether it be high network congestion, building material or local interference, which could affect signal levels. Our engineers will take this into account when designing the network.
The engineering team will design and install a network that guarantees coverage to pre-defined signal level to ensure even the smallest of devices like phones or handheld devices have fast stable connections.
Bespoke Survey & Design
Performance Networks’ experienced engineers will attend site and perform a wireless survey at your hospital or clinic. This will identify any potential sources of interference and specific venue obstacles that would hinder WiFi coverage. The survey looks all aspects of the building, and incorporates a full-spectrum analysis to pick up any other medical devices working within similar frequencies.
The engineer will also check the type of internet connection currently used onsite as this plays a major role in your hospital’s WiFi experience. Once the survey is complete the engineer will compile a report with their findings and the required works to provide strong coverage throughout.
Quality of Service
Applications such as VoIP, video and certain audio applications can require prioritised and guaranteed bandwidth to run effectively.
Our healthcare WiFi networks can be fully optimised to give quality and priority of service to any application. We can then constantly manage and monitor performance via our cloud controller software, allowing us to make any changes to your network instantly. The team can also create a specific cloud based controller for you with full or read only access should you wish to manage the network or have visibility.
Modern hospitals, both private clinics and for NHS Trusts, utilise numerous digital devices and technical pieces of equipment, and the future will bring even more intelligent technology into healthcare facilities. WiFi networks in hospitals are already used in a number of different, innovative ways.
- Providing patient multimedia systems
- Smart technology (including smart beds)
- Improved patient access to the outside world – and therefore patient satisfaction
- Online access to medical records
- Real-time patient monitoring
- Patient tracking when safety is a key requirement
- Improved communication around appointments
- Real-time location services to track equipment as it moves around the site
