Digitizing Medical Services for World-class Healthcare in China through Ruckus Wi-Fi
Dezhou People's Hospital is a world-class general hospital in the Shandong Province of China, with more than 1,300 beds and a 2,300-strong workforce, serving over 900,000 outpatients annually. The hospital provides accident and emergency (A&E) services, medical consultation and treatment, scientific research, medical education as well as other medical services for the citizens of the Shandong Province.
As technology continues to improve the quality and accessibility of medical care and information sharing, the mobile healthcare trend has caught on in a significant way in China, enabling patients to easily consult with doctors who use mobile medical devices as part of their work. For all this to happen, a high-speed, stable, and secure network connection is required.
Dezhou People's Hospital needed to transform the underlying infrastructure of their medical systems. An aging wireless network combined with the building structure caused serious wireless interference that was hampering their efforts in adopting newer products and technologies to help meet the demands of their patients as well as their goals to provide cutting-edge healthcare.
