GE Healthcare has launched its new Carescape telemetry platform, a wireless patient monitoring offering for hospitals.
According to GE Healthcare, the new Carescape telemetry offering consists of a seamless integration between ApexPro CH transmitter, Carescape Enterprise Access, Carescape telemetry server, Carescape T14 transmitter and other components of an ApexPro Telemetry System. It provides dual-band capabilities enabling hospitals to simultaneously leverage the two protected frequency bands- 600MHz and 1.4GHz - in wireless medical telemetry service with a single, central telemetry system.
Built on GE Carescape Enterprise Access and leveraging GE ApexPro CH Telemetry, GE Carescape telemetry enables hospitals to simultaneously leverage multiple telemetry frequencies and coordinate cell phone, Wi-Fi and other wireless technologies on one infrastructure.
Powered by MobileAccess and its wire-it-once infrastructure, Carescape Enterprise Access seamlessly unites hospital wireless networks into one infrastructure, helping to eliminate coverage drop-out and downtime. As a hospital's wireless needs grow, this wire-it-once infrastructure can help reduce the costs and infection-control issues associated with installing new cables and antennas, the company said.
David Ataide, vice president and general manager of monitoring solutions and diagnostic cardiology at GE Healthcare, said: With the GE Carescape telemetry solution, hospitals can further expand telemetry coverage throughout the hospital, allowing clinicians to monitor more patients and further enhance patient safety.
