Wireless Technologies in Professional Healthcare

A sister report to home healthcare covered in Wireless Health and Fitness, this report examines the adoption and potential for embedded wireless devices and networks within the professional healthcare environment. Professional healthcare locations represents a key market for Wi-Fi equipment vendors. This market segment historically has been the earliest of early adopters of new Wi-Fi technology and has now transitioned into a broadly-adopted technology supporting a growing list of applications. This study examines the size of the market for Wi-Fi hardware, software, and services, as well as the additional applications beside data connectivity that are driving adoption. As with the earlier iteration of this report, it looks at several key components including Wi-Fi RTLS hardware and software, pure Wi-Fi, and cellular/Wi-Fi handsets, but also adds consumer devices such as Wi-Fi-enabled tablets. The report assesses the technology challenges this market presents as well as the potential rewards. Also, in addition to the early versions of this report, this edition also provides discussion, analysis, and forecasts for the potential technologies and their adoption within medical body area networking applications within the professional healthcare setting.
