Globally, both wired and wireless technologies have been used for healthcare delivery. However, in the frenzy to secure the best solutions and applications, few have delved deeper into the key issues of how to successfully assimilate these new technologies into the whole healthcare delivery process. The authors focus on wireless healthcare solutions, specifically examining a single exemplar case study, the diamond solution that describes a pervasive technology solution of a diabetes monitoring device. They contend that a key barrier for preventing the full realization of the true potential of wireless solutions lies in the inability of information and necessary data to pass seamlessly from one platform to another. In addition, the authors suggest ways to integrate data from wireless healthcare solutions with the existing electronic health records (EHR) systems, and discuss the impact of wireless enabled solutions on the meaningful use of EHRS.
