Abstract

A fast, stable, and reliable network security of the wireless networking infrastructure is important for communications, medical data transmission, patient monitoring, and inventory management in a healthcare setting. Therefore, improving fault-tolerance and maximizing energy-efficiency of the system lifetime, protection of data as well as strong network security are the key elements to be considered with the increasing number of patients. Meanwhile, medical devices and equipment should be able to provide accurate and secure data protection with precision and speed. Lastly, cost-effectiveness and sustainability approaches need to be thought of in order to prolong the network lifetime to bring forward wireless technologies in the healthcare industry to the next level.
