To meet the 21st century objectives IBM announced new services to help healthcare organizations implement wireless mobility solutions. For many facilities, an investment in wireless communications is the first step in achieving a digital "hospital of the future," starting with enhanced communication networks that improve clinician speed and accuracy in decision-making.

IBM Enterprise Mobility Services for healthcare providers give clinicians and nursing staff wireless communications and real-time access to patient records anywhere on the facility premises. Using critical information and communications available on demand at the patient bedside, in examination rooms or in emergency treatment centers, mobility solutions allow practitioners to stay in continuous contact, to effectively develop and deliver patient assessments, and to make more informed care decisions based on collaborative treatment plans.

Hospitals around the globe are turning to IBM to provide wireless communication networks and solutions that can help healthcare providers improve patient response time, while increasing clinical staff communication and efficiencies.
