MedStar Health (Columbia, Md.) has deployed wireless Internet services to patients and visitors throughout its community-based network of hospitals through Stockholm-based Aptilo Networks.

MedStar Health is utilizing Aptilo’s software-as-a-service (SaaS) option for delivery of wireless guest Internet access services. With this hosted solution, Aptilo operates the wireless broadband service from one of its network operation centers, the company says.

In addition, a separate Guest Provisioning Portal allows MedStar Health personnel to create accounts that are valid for longer periods and have a predefined start and end date. This functionality is designed specifically for long-term visitors like medical students, it states.

A non-profit regional healthcare system, MedStar Health has rolled out the wireless guest Internet access to Georgetown University Hospital, National Rehabilitation Hospital and Washington Hospital Center in Washington, D.C., and to Franklin Square Hospital Center, Good Samaritan Hospital, Harbor Hospital and Union Memorial Hospital in Maryland.
