Woodstock Hospital has selected Cisco’s medical-grade network for its new facility in Canada.

The network will integrate business and clinical communications between patients, administrators and partners in a secure environment, the company said.

The network, which uses 802.11n wireless technology, features bandwidth-intensive and multimedia applications.

The system will help the hospital track its assets such as biomedical equipment and find patients and staff as well as improve patient safety.

The Cisco wireless network will also support third-party applications to enhance staff collaboration, such as Nurse Call and Extension Mobile, an application that allows physicians, nurses and other clinical staff members to stay connected.

The medical-grade network will support several patient monitoring systems including Spacelabs and Primex (temperature monitoring), operations systems including ISIS Pro (for bed management), and equipment sterilisation.
