Langhorne, PA, March 31, 2006—ISS Solutions, a leading provider of specialized clinical engineering and information technology lifecycle management services, announced today the implementation of a wireless medical cart solution for Frankford Hospitals.
The solution incorporates wireless infrastructure design, security protocol implementation, and mobile cart and laptop deployment. It will help improve Frankford’s already stellar reputation for delivering quality patient care. In all, 100 mobile workstations will be deployed across Frankford’s three campus locations: Bucks County, Frankford, and Torresdale.
Frankford’s physicians and nurses will use the new mobile workstations to improve patient care through on-demand access to electronic medical records, streamlined data flow processes, and computerized physician order entry related to critical elements such as prescription drug orders.
George Casper, I.T. Technical Services Manager at Frankford, commented “We’re very excited about this wireless implementation. It is critical that it be implemented correctly to ensure quality care and HIPPA security compliance. So we chose ISS Solutions for the implementation, not only because they have the technical expertise regarding wireless technology, but because they are an established technology partner in the Bucks County area. Their experts are only minutes away from our 3 campus locations.”
