Time 12/06/06 10:30AM-11:45AM

Session Abstract

This presentation looks at some of the advances in smart networking, increased network awareness, especially around sensor, location and other environmentally aware networks and shows how these can be applied to the betterment of clinical processes in healthcare. We will discuss the nature of the improvements, the requirements on the technologies and solutions for them to move out of the laboratory and into general deployment as well as some of the remaining challenge areas remaining to be overcome to allow this to happen. While this approach can be applied in almost all sectors of Healthcare a couple of deep-dive scenarios will be explored around hospital applications and solutions.
