Is wireless technology for health care systems hope or hype?...or a bit of both!? 

If "hope," when might we expect to see some solid benefits?

Not sure what you are referring to.  Wireless technology is all over healthcare already with remote patient monitoring, asset, patient, and employee tracking, hand hygiene monitoring, wayfinding, even a few of the 100,000 mobile health apps have been certified for clinical use.  Telehealth to mobile devices, wireless glucometers, secure text messaging for clinicians, etc.

Wireless is already in wide use in healthcare and offers a lot of upside.  It is often referenced that physicians are among the largest users of tablet technology.  The only real limitations are HIPAA compliance and data security, which is driven by the use case.  That includes assessment of the application, content (does content include PHI?), users (including access, roles, permissions, etc), even the location (is it in a clinic setting, hospital, or in the general public domain?).
