February 13, 2008 - Siemens will demonstrate communications solutions for healthcare, including its systems for remote physician consulting, bedside patient education and entertainment terminal, and wireless connectivity during the 2008 HIMSS conference in Orlando, FL.
Siemen’s remote physician consult and collaboration solution, the HiPath OpenOffice, HiPath 8000 and OpenScape Video, allows physicians to use these IP-based unified communications to offer remote consultation and increase collaboration with other physicians.
The HiPath healthcare solution HiMed is Siemens’ bedside patient entertainment and education terminal that lets patients make phone calls, watch TV, listen to the radio, surf the Internet and play games. At the same time, HiMed gives doctors and nursing staff direct access to all essential data right at the point-of-care. During patient consultations, the latest diagnostic images or laboratory data, for example, can be retrieved and compared with previous results on the spot. Personalized smart cards ensure that only authorized healthcare professionals can access this data.
The company said its HiPath healthcare mobility solutions for wireless LAN and fixed mobile convergence aids connectivity to streamline workflows and enable mobility through unified communications and seamless Wi-Fi both in and outside a medical facility.
Siemen’s will also display its client notification solutions, HiPath DAKS, Draeger monitoring, RFID, and wireless devices. These solutions help provide real-time vital sign monitoring and alarming, the company said.
