ISO 21730:2005 provides guidance for the deployment, use and management of mobile wireless communication and computing equipment in the healthcare facility in a way that helps mitigate potential hazards due to electromagnetic interference (EMI) with medical devices. The recommendations recognize the different resources, needs, concerns and environments of healthcare organizations around the world and provide detailed management guidelines for healthcare organizations that desire full deployment of mobile wireless communication and computing technology throughout their facility, as well as selective restrictions for healthcare organizations that have decided comprehensive management procedures are not feasible, practical, or desirable at the present time. The recommendations also distinguish between controlled systems used by doctors and staff for healthcare-specific communication and health informatics transport vs. non-controlled (personal) mobile wireless equipment randomly brought into the facility by visitors, patients and the healthcare organization workforce.
