Distributed Antenna Systems for Healthcare Applications
Distributed Antenna Systems for Hospitals, Healthcare Clinics & Medical Facilities
Many healthcare facilities are turning to distributed antenna systems to improve cellular connectivity for their employees and patients. This is because it is essential that staff and medical personnel stay connected to communicate and work together in critical circumstances, and for family and friends to communicate during traumatic situations. We service hospitals, clinics, treatment centers, dental offices, mobile care vehicles, private practices, and more.
Why Install Distributed Antenna Systems in a Hospital or Clinic?
Challenges stemming from weak or erratic cell signals are easy to overcome with distributed antenna systems, and with our interior cellular enhancement (I.C.E.) system you’ll see complete network compatibility (works for any carrier or device) without any interference or security/safety concerns.
If you are dealing with frustrating “dead zones” or going out of your way regularly to a location with “good signal”, then you are devoting valuable time and attention to an annoying problem that could be solved quickly with a simple solution. Improving cellular signal can help hospitals and clinics address regulatory, business, and clinical obstacles.
Advantages of Distributed Antenna Systems
- Medical professionals rely on their cellular devices for information, and to communicate seamlessly with colleagues, staff, emergency personnel, and patients.
- Dropped or missed calls and messages can lead to devastating circumstances in an industry that is so time-sensitive.
- Efficient delivery of services is essential to quality, responsive patient care, especially when budget restrictions require staff to do more with less.
- Patients and visitors can be “data hungry”, so keeping their activity off Wi-Fi can prevent them from competing with those using the network for critical care applications.
- Hospitals and clinics rely on technology that prevents cell signals from interfering with and compromising sensitive medical equipment.
- Materials existing in the structure and equipment of healthcare buildings (reflective glass, concrete, brick, lead, tile walls, fluids, or steel) obstruct or deflect signals and, therefore, are the most common causes of coverage interruptions, and can be difficult to overcome without distributed antenna systems.
- Real-time communication, rapid access to patient data, and use of medical applications (i.e. The Merck Manuals, MedCalc, or LabGear) via smart devices have been shown to reduce costs and improve healthcare outcomes.
- Distributed antenna systems are simple to install and maintain without disrupting the regular operation of your facility in any way.
- Many medical facilities are able to share the costs associated with distributed antenna systems with neutral host providers and carriers.
Get the Best Value When Berk-Tel Designs & Installs Your Distributed Antenna Systems
During installation, we make it our priority to maintain a clean, safe, and discreet working area. We work with you to ensure all your expectations are met during the entire process. Our “I.C.E.” interior cellular enhancement system accommodates your diverse facility population so that all carriers and devices are supported. Medical facilities like hospitals and clinics have become known for their poor radiofrequency (RF) coverage, but that doesn’t have to be the case.
