It is still good information.
I watched some of it, but it started sounding to much like what I have heard, seen, and still have to deal with at work. The road Map they laid out in the interview sounded eerily familiar. Our Emergency Dept. was the starting point, Vocera VOIP phones are used quite a bit in the Hospital, Wireless access everywhere. Currently ClinDoc (Clinical Documentation) is being rolled out, Which entails putting a computer in every patient room, and Hallway wall mounted stations. (plus 32" flat panel TVs in all the rooms.)
None of this matters to most people until it is them or a loved one in the hospital, but it is already making my job easier. A few weeks from now and I'll have a Laptop, or Tablet PC to do My ordering, which will save me a lot of time by being able to place orders on the fly instead of writing it down and traveling back to my office to enter them.

You should do a google search for El Camino Hospital and check out the news report on their tech. All medical Devices are wireless and can communicate with what ever they are using for a server. Portable X-Ray machines uploading Digital images directly to their workstations for review and printing, ect.
The patient rooms come with free Wi-Fi and 30" LCD TV's.
Really High-Tech stuff considering its been years in the making.
