The Healthcare Industry is one of the largest industries in the United States and other well-developed countries. Half of the 20 fastest growing occupations are healthcare related and the industry is expected to generate 3.2 million new wage and salary jobs between 2008 and 2018 – more than any other industry, largely in response to rapid growth in the elderly population. Cutting-edge security, surveillance and telecommunications equipment will be a key component of maintaining safe facilities, properly monitoring patients and visitors as well as quickly sharing valuable information.

Opportunities in IP Video
Network video can help improve the overall safety and security of a hospital or healthcare facility while enabling high-quality patient monitoring to increase everyday efficiency. IP cameras can effectively monitor critical areas such as emergency rooms, psychiatry departments and restricted areas. Break-ins and dishonest insurance claims can be avoided with network video and personnel can quickly evaluate incidents and take appropriate actions.

Opportunities in IP Networking
Medical applications are among the most demanding in terms of network capacity, real-time performance, mission-critical reliability and data security. Fiber optic cabling is the primary technology of choice to provide these requirements, however it is often difficult or costly to connect fiber to buildings across city streets or beyond the main campus. UNISOL International offers many wireless networking devices that are the natural choices to provide fiber equivalent performance together with fiber equivalent security. Applications such as electronic patient records and high-resolution medical imaging are well-supported with full GigE bandwidth and ultra-low latency performance.

Opportunities in IP Access Control
Healthcare facilities often have sensitive hard-copy information, restricted areas, residing patients and visiting traffic. In order to efficiently manage staff, patients, visitors and documents, facilities can implement IP Access Control and Time and Attendance Management systems using equipment from companies like Suprema and HID. Improvements in technology have allowed for systems to incorporate biometric devices, face-recognition and NFC (Near Field Communications) Smart-phone recognition systems. Touch screens and video chatting features can be found in some systems as well.

Opportunities in IP Videoconferencing
A growing area in healthcare is Telemedicine: the use of telecommunication and information technologies in order to provide clinical health care at a distance. Telemedicine helps eliminate distance barriers and can improve access to medical services that would often not be consistently available in distant rural communities. It is also used to save lives in critical care and emergency situations.
UNISOL International offers a variety of IP Videoconferencing systems from manufacturers such as Sony and LG Electronics that can help save money and lives.
