Strategic Venue Partners Enables Stronger Telehealth Capabilities for Rush University Medical Center Facility

A new company in the in-building wireless space, Strategic Venue Partners (SVP), is playing a large role in helping a top medical and musculoskeletal health facility improve wireless connectivity throughout the facility. SVP is celebrating providing reliable service for more than one year to Rush University Medical Center and Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush. Their newly built facility opened in January 2019 with full wireless coverage throughout the venue, thanks to SVP.

Reliable wireless connectivity is the key to providing telehealth services medical facilities have relied on during the COVID-19 pandemic. According to a physician survey published in April by Merritt Hawkins, nearly half of all physicians were treating patients virtually, up from 18% in 2018. In March, Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush announced it had trained its nearly 100 providers on telehealth.

How SVP’s Services Enable Telehealth

SVP collaborated with administrators and clinicians to design and build a modern, state-of-the art distributed antenna system (DAS), that includes all major carriers. The system was installed as the facility was being constructed. From the time it opened, SVP’s strategic approach to wireless solutions has provided doctors and patients across the multi-floor facility with reliable wireless connectivity, enabling the use of telehealth and other tech-driven tools. SVP’s wireless solutions also make it easier for doctors, patients and visitors to effectively communicate within the facility.

“Access to dependable wireless service is an important part of the patient care delivery model. Patients rely on connectivity to communicate with friends and family throughout the building, and the medical staff increasingly relies on wireless functionality to access tools that help them care for and communicate with patients. SVP helps make all of this possible.” – Randal Johnson, CFO for Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush.

“We provide ubiquitous coverage throughout the facility and parking garages. With our future-proofed approach to the lifecycle management of all wireless communications, Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush will have a state-of-the-art system now and well into the future, capable of handling any wireless offering that may be developed in the coming years. We’ll keep managing relationships with wireless carriers so they can focus on caring for patients.” – Justin Marron, CEO for SVP
