In a bid to improve patient care, Dubai’s Canadian Specialist Hospital has agreed to implement mobile communications technology from communications equipment giant Nortel.
The Nortel technology is designed to ensure medical personnel have the right information at the right time, regardless of where they are in the facility. According to the company, a new high-performance IP network will provide the Canadian Specialist Hospital with the maximum manageability, reliability, mobility and security in communications that are critical to its fast-paced environment.
The Canadian Specialist Hospital will deploy Nortel’s WLAN 2300 system – a secure WiFi platform that provides healthcare staff with flexible communications access to critical information and resources as they move around a medical campus.
The key to healthcare today that is reflected throughout the Canadian Specialist Hospital is to treat patients as quickly and efficiently as possible, with the highest standards of quality care. Communications technologies are playing an ever-increasing role in ensuring those standards are met, said Mr Mohammed Rashed Al-Falasi, chairman of Canadian Specialist Hospital.
Nortel and its channel partner in the region, Alpha Data, will deploy a complete network solution for the Canadian Specialist Hospital. The new IP-based communications platform will be integrated with existing clinical alarm and alerts systems from a variety of vendors, including paging, fire alarm or blood bank alarm systems.
