Health IT tip of the day: Take advantage of the opportunities secure guest WiFi can offer

Having users connect to facility-provided WiFi gives businesses an opportunity to present information, so long as the guest network is secure and operates independently of the hospital's network.

Southington, Conn.-based Resolute Partners' Christopher Reeves, field operations manager, client services, and Rich Schiffmann, vice president of corporate development: As users log on to a guest network they can be directed to a business' home page. This unique opportunity puts information in front of the customer that would be unavailable otherwise. However, considering the increased use of wireless patient-monitoring devices and the communication of protected health information over networks, the guest network must be reliable and secure while not burdening the hospital's communication pathways.
