Date:10/13/2009

SEATTLE, Oct. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- In a recent survey of healthcare IT decision makers, 80 percent reported that mobility initiatives were more important to their organizations than they were a year ago*. Today, NetMotion Wireless, a leading provider of mobile productivity and management software, published a free mobile computing white paper for healthcare IT managers available for download at www.netmotionwireless.com/resources/whitepapers.

The white paper describes the use of wireless data communications within a hospital campus or in outpatient clinics, as well as by home-health workers, emergency-services personnel and other mobile clinicians. Specifically, the paper discusses topics including:

  • Improving patient care with mobile technology;
  • Reducing help-desk calls and IT management issues;
  • Authentication methods and data security;
  • Encryption of confidential patient data;
  • Application persistence to maintain access to healthcare and management applications independent of wireless network conditions;
  • Inter-network roaming to enable seamless communications across Wi-Fi and cellular data networks;
  • Policy management to centralize control over applications, users, and devices;
  • Network access control (NAC) to verify devices have required security precautions in place;
  • Quality of service (QoS) to enable priority access to critical applications;
  • Device management across PCs, mobile phones, and other wireless devices; and
  • Analytics and notifications to monitor performance across multiple networks.

"At hospitals and healthcare agencies across the country, NetMotion Wireless is used to improve point-of-care by healthcare personnel and to increase the efficiency of the IT organizations that support them," said Pam Cory, vice president of marketing, NetMotion Wireless. "Our mobile Virtual Private Network, Mobility XE, provides secure connectivity, device and application management, cross-network roaming, and application persistence enabling clinicians to focus on their patients, and not on their mobile devices."

NetMotion's mobile Virtual Private Network (VPN) solution, Mobility XE(TM), enables mobile workers to maintain secure connections to applications as they move through wireless coverage gaps and across various networks. NetMotion Wireless supports the critical care operations of numerous healthcare providers, from major hospitals and health organizations such as St. Luke's Episcopal Health System, the Marshfield Clinic, and Lee Memorial Health System, to home healthcare organizations such as the Visiting Nurse Service of New York. In addition, the company supports the mobile deployments of a number of emergency medical services, the Puget Sound Blood Center, and other ambulatory care organizations.

Around the globe, more than 400,000 mobile workers use NetMotion's Mobility XE to mitigate some of the most common challenges in mobile deployments today. In addition, the company provides advanced security and network management controls that extend corporate security policies to mobile devices, while also allowing customers to utilize their existing mobile investments to reliably deploy real-time applications such as Voice over IP (VoIP) and streaming video.
