InfoLogix's Wireless as a Service offering delivers advanced wireless connectivity as a managed service, thereby enabling hospitals like Hilo to achieve ongoing access to a fully-functional wireless infrastructure on as a pay-as-you-go basis. The offering provides for the purchase, installation and maintenance of the wireless network throughout the entire hospital - from wireless workstations in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and Emergency departments, to all patient rooms, mobile devices and PDAs - and secure access to patient information accessible to all caregivers, whether onsite or remote.
By enabling the infrastructure to be financed over a multi-year period as part of a managed service, hospitals are able to cost-effectively achieve wireless functionality today - a necessary pre-requisite for supporting advanced EMR implementations that will be spurred by the federal government's ARRA stimulus legislation - without the upfront costs.
"We're proud to provide Hilo Medical Center with one of the most advanced and business-friendly models for achieving maximum wireless connectivity within their organisation", stated David Gulian, President and CEO of InfoLogix. "While Hilo focuses on what matters most - their patients - InfoLogix will be handling their complete wireless infrastructure, including help desk, network monitoring, an on-demand portal, and all other components necessary to drive the vital EMR, voice and data communications necessary in a 21st century health care facility."
"With InfoLogix's innovative capability to provide Wireless as a Service, we're able to achieve extended wireless communications across our organisation, always kept up-to-date with the latest technology, on a pay-as-you-go basis", stated Money Atwal, Chief Financial Officer and Chief Information Officer of Hilo Medical Center. "In addition to enabling HMC staff to focus on delivering the highest quality care to our patients, this also gives our caregivers the peace of mind that they'll be able to electronically access privacy-protected patient records anywhere, anytime, while InfoLogix focuses on delivering the connectivity as a service."
