Healthcare Wi-Fi

Better patient experience

Healthcare Wi-Fi is the key to better care and patient experience. It’s as close to a ‘home away from home’ experience patients can get. Use the Wi-Fi service as a digital, location-based information board.

Healthcare Wi-Fi solutions need to have Enterprise guest Wi-Fi functions. This include setup of long-term accounts for contracted staff, allowing them to access selected equipment such as printers from their own devices.

Healthcare Wi-Fi is a mix of Enterprise Guest access and Hospitality

A complete healthcare Wi-Fi solution also include Hospitality Wi-Fi like functions. Patients may pay for premiums access such as extra bandwidth for streaming video. Many healthcare providers also provide hotel facilities, where outpatients can stay with their families.

A HYBRID BETWEEN ENTERPRISE AND HOSPITALITY

As mentioned above, healthcare providers need to combine the functionality in our Enterprise guest Wi-Fi and Hospitality Wi-Fi solutions. Learn more about them in their respective sections and why the B2B Wi-Fi software market will grow 10x by 2020 in our guest Wi-Fi solution section.

HEALTHCARE WI-FI AS A DIGITAL INFORMATION BOARD

It used to be that the captive portal was a tool to prevent Internet access for people that hadn’t paid for the Wi-Fi service. Now, it is a powerful tool to communicate with your customers – the patients.

Why not use the captive portal to inform patients on practical details in your department? You will not need IT’s help to keep the portal up to date. With our captive portal manager anyone, for example the head nurse of a department, can make those updates. It is also possible to schedule updates of portals in time.

The information can be local, Wi-Fi zones are defined down to a single Wi-Fi access point.
