New Healthcare Standards

In today’s healthcare environment, clinical systems and IT systems are merging, creating new and unique requirements for the structured cabling system, pathways, and spaces. Non traditional special systems, like nurse call, integrated operating room systems, and infant protection systems, have now become part of the network cabling. As a result, the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) which develops standards for the Information Technology Systems industry, released TIA-1179 Healthcare Facility Telecommunications Infrastructure Standard.

TIA-1179 provides specifications for the planning and installation of a structured cabling system including requirements for cabling, cabling topologies, and cabling distances, pathways and spaces (e.g. sizing and location), and other ancillary requirements. Guidance on selection of media and network design is provided and of particular importance for larger healthcare facilities, which may have a useful life far longer than traditional office-oriented commercial buildings.

For more information about TIA-1179 and how it effects your healthcare facility, contact our offices and speak with one of our IT System designers, 203-294-4655.
