Once the requirement for a biomedical information network has been articulated, the process of development and implementation can then be approached. Although the general architecture of such a system may appear to be self evident, there are careful design considerations that will allow the network to be robust and achieve increased levels of functionality(More)
The deployment of new wireless and networked technology and advanced clinical applications has significantly increased the quality and the quantity of patient diagnostic and monitoring information throughout the patient care environment. Coupled with increasing workloads and reduced staffing, the difficulties in effectively prioritizing and handling this(More)
