NetMotion Wireless Enhances Productivity at St. Luke’s Episcopal Health System

December 17, 2007 - NetMotion Wireless today said it expanded its relationship with St. Luke’s Episcopal Health System in Houston, TX, to support up to 900 laptops and mobile devices using NetMotion’s, Mobility XE and Mobile VPN.

The additional Wi-Fi will help St. Luke’s doctors and nurses boost mobile productivity by allowing them to stay connected to critical applications, roam seamlessly between multiple Wi-Fi hot spots, and maintain applications even when users move in and out of wireless coverage areas.

“We needed to make sure that no matter where in the hospital facility these devices might be, they can reliably access critical patient records and applications,” said Gene Gretzer, senior analyst and wireless initiative project leader for St. Luke’s. “With Mobility XE, we get greater reliability and security which makes our clinicians more productive.”

In a typical healthcare deployment with handheld devices, tablets or laptops, clinicians and staff are constantly moving between floors or buildings, or entering elevators or corridors. This often causes network connections to be lost, which in turn forces users to restart applications, re-enter lost data, and significantly impacts productivity. The company says Mobility XE allows secure and seamless roaming between multiple networks and when connections are lost, automatically maintains application sessions so healthcare professionals can focus on their work, and not on managing a device or network.

In addition to providing wireless access that meets HIPAA security standards, St. Luke’s uses NetMotion to access a variety of healthcare applications, including patient charting and records, blood management and monitoring, neurological and X-ray test results, and portable scanning for patient and test result identification.
