Mobile assessment and deployment of wireless solution by InfoLogix ensures a hospital's communications system enables more efficient patient care
HATBORO, Pa., March 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- A hospital's worst nightmare is having its communications system go down. But thanks to the mobile assessment and guidance provided by InfoLogix, Inc. (Nasdaq: IFLG), Sisters of Mercy Health System has rolled out one of America's largest and most reliable wireless IP-DECT communications systems. Using more than 200 handsets across three campuses, doctors, nurses and, most importantly, patients at Mercy hospitals now benefit from more robust communications that enable faster response times to patient needs and a higher quality of care.
Instead of using pagers, InfoLogix has provided the nurses on Mercy campuses with a mobile wireless handset solution that enables rapid transmission and receipt of critical information, as well as more efficient handling of patient care requests. After assessing Mercy's communications system, InfoLogix suggested the new system's VoIP Gateway component, which enables nurses to make internal and external calls using the handsets. The systems behind the handsets are based on IP-DECT (Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications), which delivers secure wireless mobile voice, messaging, and alert communications to nurses, even if the hospital's main system goes offline.
InfoLogix deployed 160 wireless Ascom 9d24 MkII IP-DECT handsets on Mercy's Springfield, Mo., campus, running on 105 base stations on the Wireless Local Area Networ
