Daybreak Venture, a provider in rehabilitation and nursing care, has deployed Aerohive Network's secure wireless networking solution to support EHR access, provide wireless internet to residents and guests and administer enhanced patient care.
With over 75 geographic locations and more than 5,400 employees, the provider offers services for skilled nursing, hospice, respite care and long-term care.
"From enabling us to install point-of-care workstations to putting plans in place for medical personnel to use tablets in their daily care routines, Daybreak Venture is more than pleased with the wireless solution from Aerohive," said John Valker, CIO, Daybreak Venture. "Daybreak Venture chose Aerohive for its controller-less architecture that has proven to meet our requirements across the board."
Daybreak Venture began leveraging Wi-Fi-enabled technology to deliver greater services and innovative programs for residents across 20 locations.
They recognized the need to upgrade to a more cost-effective, centrally managed controller-less networking solution than the one they had, which would enable them to implement a comprehensive Wi-Fi infrastructure. Through in-depth evaluation, the company had then deiced to select Aerohive to meet its wireless needs.
Daybreak Venture started deploying Aerohive's AP121 access points throughout each facility—with plans to conclude the full rollout in the next year. They are also leveraging Aerohive's HiveManager Networking Management System for centralized configuration, monitoring and management.
Also, the organization has installed point-of-care workstations, allowing staff to quickly and easily enter patient data and information, such as medication activities, vitals and notes—bringing documentation closer to patients and enabling staff to deliver care more efficiently.
Physicians can now access EHR both on site and remotely to improve clinical workflow, decrease oversight and provide constant patient monitoring.
Since implementation, Daybreak Venture has been able to securely deploy a network that supports HIPAA compliance standards, and patient privacy and data protection regulations, as well as provide secure guest access to its residents and visitors.
