Hospital Puts Wireless At Heart Of Tech Plans

The Royal Hospitals Trust is planning to add 200 more access points to its wireless network, which currently houses 400 of these devices, as part of its plan to open a new digital imaging center. The trust — a hospital network comprising the Royal Belfast Hospital for Sick Children, the Royal Jubilee Maternity Service, the Royal Victoria and the Dental Hospital — will increase the number further by 500 to cover most of the buildings on the 80-acre site. It hopes to have full coverage of the area in two years. The trust expects the wireless network, which was developed by Trapeze Networks and installed by Telindus, to reduce time and cost of dispensing drugs, streamline flows and processes, and increase mobility for elderly patients, doctors and other medical personnel.
