Cooper University Hospital Reduces Costs and Enhances Patient Care with IP Telephony and Wireless Site Survey
Date:8/10/2009

NEW YORK, Aug. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Dimension Data, a $4.5 billion leading IT solutions and services provider, today announced the implementation of an IP telephony (IPT) solution and wireless site survey at Cooper University Hospital (CUH). For CUH, the leading provider of comprehensive health services, medical education and clinical research in southern New Jersey and the Delaware Valley, these projects have resulted in increased operational efficiency, enhanced patient safety and reduced expenses.

Dimension Data's wireless site survey documented both Voice over Wireless LAN (VoWLAN) and radio-frequency (RF) coverage requirements, and has enabled CUH to employ radio-frequency identification (RFID) technologies to track moveable equipment, furniture, medical devices and other high-value items. The hospital had been set to order new IV pumps but leveraged RFID capabilities in Cisco's Wireless Location Appliance to provide an accurate asset inventory -- determining that additional pumps were unnecessary and resulting in a $1 million cost avoidance.

In addition, CUH -- which previously employed Dimension Data's services for network integration, security and Microsoft engagements -- has been able to wirelessly network its smart IV pumps to distribute drug dosage updates in real time versus one-at-a-time, increasing safety for the patients.

"We were thrilled to jumpstart our wireless infrastructure with Dimension Data, whose expertise has helped us streamline processes, and improve procedures for staff and patients alike," said Michael Sinno, chief information officer, Cooper University Hospital. "As we seek to be agile, flexible and competitive, our new, cutting-edge technologies will help us deliver the highest quality of service and execute on our commitment to excellence in medical education, patient care and research."
