Smart hospitals

Hospitals’ data systems, departments, people, devices and technology can connect through the new Zyter Smart Hospitals digital communication and collaboration platform. Patients use a pre-programmed 4G-enabled device that automatically tracks and transmits data from their home medical devices to their physician. The platform enables hospitals of all sizes to upgrade from hard-wired IT and Wi-Fi systems to a private 5G-enabled IT or cellular network that supports multiple Internet of Things (IoT) devices. Zyter partners with Qualcomm and other telecom companies to provide connectivity.
