Inspira Health Network operates over 60 clinical access points (hospitals, clinics, labs) throughout southern New Jersey.

They now operate a network of over 700 beds, employing 2000 nurses and 60 doctors. Inspira Health Network is the region’s leading network of health care providers, delivering the full continuum of primary, acute and advanced care services.
There have been multiple assessments involving the wired and wireless network, of nurse workflow and of the overall IT environment. In each case recommendations were made and a proposed roadmap was developed and implemented at a pace that made the most sense.

Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise’s broad portfolio and interoperability with existing infrastructure means Inspira is able to ask “Can Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise solve this problem”?
