Miami Jewish Health Systems (Fla.) will use Agilysys (Solon, Ohio) to deploy Schaumberg, Ill.-based Motorola’s HIPAA-compliant end-to-end wireless LAN (WLAN) and AirDefense solutions.

The 802.11n WLAN solution utilizes Motorola’s RFS7000 wireless switches, coupled with dual- and tri-radio AP-7131 and AP-5181 access points that the company says ensures maximum indoor and outdoor wireless coverage, while supporting enterprise applications, including voice and video.

In addition, Miami Jewish has installed the Motorola AirDefense wireless security and monitoring solution to protect against wireless security threats and help meet HIPAA compliance guidelines.

The Motorola infrastructure supports a variety of handheld medical devices, from mobile computers to VoIP phones, for both enterprise and clinical applications, including asset tracking and electronic medical records, it says.

Founded in 1940 as a 23-bed residence for widows, Miami Jewish Health Systems today treats some 3,700 people daily though its on-campus medical, residential, and community programs. About 3,000 of those patients receive their care each day through MJHS’s community ‘nursing home diversion programs,’ which are designed to keep patients out of nursing homes and functioning independently in the community.
