Leverage Wi-Fi and Location Services to Deliver a Meaningful Patient Experience
As hospitals evolve to meet the growing demand for personalized healthcare, IT holds the key to delivering mobile experiences that clinicians, patients and their families can rely on.
Hospitals can now engage directly with patients on their mobile devices during visits and clinicians, specialist and administrative staff can focus on collaborating with patients at bedside.
Mobility offers a big boost to patient satisfaction by improving the quality, safety and efficiency of care and by enabling new services that enhance the in-hospital experience.

Wi-Fi that’s always on, always reliable
Whether in a patient’s room or at the nurse’s station, Aruba’s 802.11ac Wi-Fi with ClientMatch™ technology ensures that everyone connects to the best-performing AP on the network. Aruba Wi-Fi also features a next-generation mobility firewall that performs deep packet inspection (DPI) to ensure that critical healthcare apps and medical devices get priority treatment during peak traffic periods.
Location-aware indoor mobile apps
Connect with patients, nurses and physicians on their mobile devices to boost care quality and customer satisfaction. Aruba Meridian-powered apps bring location-aware services indoors by delivering personalized push notifications and turn-by-turn navigation to personal mobile devices. Integration with third-party systems such as staff directories, medical notices and social media keeps everyone on-time and up-to-date.
Securely onboard your own device
Aruba ClearPass Onboard makes it easy for your medical staff to securely onboard their own mobile devices to the hospital or clinic Wi-Fi network. Role-based policies even allow doctors, nurses and PAs to access and record patient information on these devices while remaining compliant with strict patient privacy regulations. And if a mobile device is lost or stolen, employees or IT can quickly revoke access privileges.
Self-service Wi-Fi access for visitors
Aruba ClearPass Guest lets patients and their families register for Wi-Fi access without involving IT or the admittance staff. Patients can Skype loved ones and post Facebook updates in minutes and never impact the performance or security of the hospital Wi-Fi network. Hospitals can even brand and personalize the visitor experience with custom push notifications and other relevant information through a captive web portal or mobile app.
