The American College of Clinical Engineering (ACCE) will host a Webinar on February 14 that will include discussions about the types of wireless systems used in health care settings.

Additional topics the session will cover include: 802.11 applications in health care; terminology; interference with medical devices; security of such networks; quality of service; managing wireless networks; proprietary versus nonproprietary; and case studies.

The speaker for the event, Steven D. Baker, PhD, holds the position of senior principal engineer at Welch Allyn Monitoring, Skaneateles Falls, NY, where he helped develop and deploy the first enterprisewide, standards-based patient telemetry solution. Baker’s work in 802.11 medical-grade wireless networks has continued for 13 years and his experience allowed him to contribute to the CEN/ISO IEEE 11073 standard for health informatics, the 80001-1:2010 standard on application of risk management for medical IT networks, and co-author the 80001-2-3 Wireless Guidance Technical Report.
