El Camino Hospital, Mountain View, Calif, has struck a deal with InnerWireless, Inc to use Horizon in its new 300-bed hospital to guarantee wireless connectivity and coverage for mission and life critical applications, when it opens in 2009.

Horizon converges WWAN and WLAN services including cellular/PCS, 802.11 a/b/g/n, WMTS, pagers and two-way radios. Horizon also keeps mobile staff and clinicians continuously connected to the hospital’s main HIS, so they can access patient information at all times.

El Camino Hospital’s wireless ecosystem will initially include 802.11 a/b/g and cellular connectivity, with the ability to add many other services such as wireless medical telemetry, clinical carts, laptops, tablet PCs, pagers and two-way radios.
