The healthcare industry clearly benefits from the advantages of wireless connectivity and the Internet of Things. The new government mandate for electronic medical records, the need for coordination of care among departments and practitioners, and the need for video surveillance and security are just a few of the areas where networking, including wireless connectivity, are becoming more and more critical.

A healthcare facility needs to cut patient observation costs while continuing to provide the attention and care patients need. Cisco’s HD video and two-way communication solutions enable virtual observation by centrally located trained staff who can monitor multiple patients and, when necessary, notify onsite staff as quickly as if they were physically present. Staffing costs are reduced, and since the virtual deployment runs over the facility’s existing network, major installation and upgrade costs are avoided.
