ICTAS Black Swan Seminar -- The Hospital Room of the Future: How Wireless can Lower Cost and Improve Care though Sensing, Data Mining, and Enhanced Security
The Hospital Room of the Future will leverage our extensive knowledge and experience in the areas of wireless networking, spectrum management, data mining, HCI, cyber security, and medical process in order to investigate, implement, and test novel spectrum management solutions for hospital environments. The primary goal of this work is to create an experimental medical environment to demonstrate the practical need for, and feasibility of, spectrum management solutions in this unique and increasingly cluttered spectrum environment. Secondly, this work intends to demonstrate that improved spectrum management can lead to improvements in patient quality of care, hospital operating efficiency, and reduced operating costs. This novel infrastructure will provide opportunities for a number of research areas to streamline medical processes.
