Hospitals are facilities that need to be operational 24 hours a day during 365 days. This facility, one of the most complex, yields with the pressure of costs and times and not only has to worry about patients and families but also about the maintenance of equipment and infrastructure. Today, at HBS, we tell you about IoT solutions for hospitals.
One of the problems that the IoT solves is the protection of the devices, i. e. avoiding theft and controlling the inputs and outputs. This way, managers can save on equipment replacement.
Another solution proposed by the IoT to hospitals is the improvement of comfort and efficiency of medical centers. What do you mean? The ability to monitor patient by patient allows you to customize the care and customize the treatment easily and remotely.
In facility management, the IoT is also useful because it helps reduce energy consumption, even allowing staff to use their smartphones or tablets to access energy data and act in the event of anomalies.
It is true that the implementation of the IoT solution in hospitals is a major investment for the centers. However, this compensates in the medium and long-term. As the devices are connected to each other automatically and efficiently, it allows the data to be viewed in real time.
The Internet of Things or IoT is one of the revolutions when it comes to managing and maintaining the hospital, however, we must think that it can be an access point for all those who want to access information illegally, so there are already new tools or the creation of security protocols to ensure patient privacy.
