Gwinnett Medical Center (GMC), a not-for-profit healthcare network based in Lawrenceville, Ga., will deploy a handheld Care Team Communications system from Hatboro, Pa.-based InfoLogix in the emergency department.

Gwinnett Medical Center engaged InfoLogix to conduct a wireless infrastructure assessment to determine the technical and workflow requirements necessary for optimal communications, says the company. Based on its findings, a mobile deployment strategy was developed.

As part of the implementation, InfoLogix deployed handsets that enable instantaneous voice, messaging and alert communications throughout the ED. The new handsets also feature longer battery life to reduce down-time, and can be sanitized and disinfected, says the company.
