What is mobility in a healthcare setting?
Mobility is used to describe continuous network connectivity, providing the user with anytime, anywhere access to social media, clinical, or business application data. When Wi-Fi® client devices and the hospital network to which they connect properly support mobility, a wireless device can access the network and hospital information systems (HIS) while on the move anywhere in the building and sometimes outside of the building (e.g. walkways between buildings). To properly support mobility in hospitals, adherence to best practices in the design, installation, and management of the Wi-Fi network and devices is essential.
