Survey Indicates Fear Factor Limits Reliance on Wi-Fi at Most Hospitals

Uninterrupted Care Network delivers the solution

A recent survey conducted by Meru Networks shows that more than 50% of hospitals do not use wireless connectivity for life-critical systems such as telemetry and infusion pumps.

  • 55% were concerned about application performance, capacity and the ability to reliably run mission critical applications

As a result, clinicians are forced to rely on local alarms which can have serious shortcomings depending on staffing conditions within a hospital.  Read what happened in the case cited by George Mills.
