Abstract:

Wireless communication is a ubiquitous phenomenon in the leisure products market, to a lesser extent in the arena of business, and to the least extent in the health care environment. This pilot study successfully demonstrated the feasibility of wireless text and image data transmission from a Picture Archiving Communications System PACS to both Tablet PC s and Personal Data Assistant s PDA s in an Emergency Department environment. However, this concept of operation could not be implemented within the confines of the security architecture currently required of wireless communications within the Department of Defense DOD. With appropriate modifications to the security infrastructure that would allow for the strength of the security suite to be maintained, wireless technology within the DOD could be realized.
