InnerWireless, Inc. announced that Childrens Hospital Los Angeles will deploy Horizon in its existing facility and its new 317-bed hospital scheduled to open in 2010.
With Horizon, Childrens Hospital Los Angeles will have whole-house clinical mobility including the ability to wirelessly deliver voice, data and location services such as telemetry, WiFi, cellular/PCS and real-time asset tracking.
“Childrens Hospital Los Angeles provides the finest healing environment for seriously ill and injured children, and clinical mobility is key to us because patients, especially children, are most comforted when caregivers remain at the bedside, which is only possible with wirelessly delivered services,” said Steven Garske, vice president and chief information officer of Childrens Hospital Los Angeles. “From a technology perspective, InnerWireless provides the assured coverage we need for life-critical services such as WMTS, while also meeting our low-power requirements. InnerWireless was the best choice for our clinicians, our patients and their families.”
With the deployment of Horizon, Childrens Hospital Los Angeles will enjoy the benefits of becoming a Converged Wireless Hospital, with virtually unlimited wireless capabilities for everything, everywhere, everytime connectivity.
“InnerWireless is squarely focused on helping improve clinical outcomes and the patient experience at all hospitals, but it is especially rewarding to know that we’re helping children who are being cared for by one of the country’s leaders in pediatric healthcare and research,” said Chris Click, vice president of marketing at InnerWireless. “Childrens Hospital Los Angeles is breaking new ground in healthcare, literally and figuratively, and we are proud to help deliver the many benefits of mobility to their doctors, nurses, patients and their families.”
