The Richmond, Va.-based Virginia Commonwealth University Health System (VCUHS) will deploy Richardson, Texas-based InnerWireless’ Horizon solution in its new Critical Care Hospital.

According to the company, the solution will ensure guaranteed wireless connectivity for mission- and life-critical applications and optimize its wireless ecosystem, which includes 802.11 a/b/g, wireless telemetry, cellular phones and PDAs, clinical carts, laptops, tablet PCs, pagers, and two-way radios.

The solution will integrate with the hospital’s PatientKeeper Physician Information System. At the Critical Care Hospital, Horizon will also give patients complete accessibility to nurses with VoIP phones, and clinicians will be able to monitor patient vital signs from anywhere in the facility with wireless telemetry.
