Abstract

Mobile telephone systems using radio waves with very low power outputs rarely interfere with electronic medical equipment, which allows them to be safely installed in hospitals. The Personal Handy-phone System, PHS, which was developed and is widely used in Japan, is one such system. It has many useful functions including voice communication, string message transfer, e- mail, an answering system limited to selected persons or groups, paging, automatic call transfer, and handset positioning. In this paper we discuss the benefits of these functions confer to hospital communication systems.
