Schneider Electric helps hospitals thrive with its IoT-enabled EcoStruxure for Healthcare architecture. Every level of a hospital requires energy, security, and power management, including everything from the emergency rooms to the executive suites. Continue reading to learn more about how EcoStruxure for Healthcare can help your healthcare facility.
Since healthcare facilities are open 24/7 every day of the year, they use massive amounts of energy. Many facilities include additional off-site buildings, making energy management even more difficult. That is where EcoStruxure for Healthcare energy management solutions becomes beneficial, as you can find opportunities to improve financial health and operational efficiency. No matter the size of your facility or clinic, every healthcare system wants the same thing- to improve energy efficiency without compromising patient care. A few of the greatest benefits of EcoStruxure for Healthcare include the ability to manage energy across multiple buildings, make informed decisions to reduce energy’s impact on your budget, and use energy saving to improve maintenance and patient care.
Security management is also crucial for healthcare facilities. Unfortunately, there has been a significant increase in assaults, disorderly conduct, and theft within hospitals. The primary goal of a healthcare facility is to protect their patients from harm, and that includes a reliable security system to stop violence before it escalates. Your facility will be ready to face today’s security challenges with, EcoStruxure Access Expert, the new, integrated security offer that combines innovative software and hardware with the latest IP technology. The system integrates with other building systems to deliver efficiency and keep security directors informed with real-time information and updates, provide access control, intrusion detection, visitor management, and video surveillance, and control over lighting, fire safety, power monitoring and more.
Power management is another essential element for hospitals, as unplanned power outages can be detrimental. Hospitals rely on power to keep life-supporting machines and appliances running, and an unplanned outage can not only cause a significant amount of damage to the facility’s reputation, but is also extremely threatening to patient safety. With an EcoStruxure Power Management system, you can feel secure knowing that it is up to 99.999% reliable and will reduce the number and duration of unplanned power outages. Other exceptional benefits include reducing energy consumption, improving maintenance, optimizing the loading of key equipment, and reducing liability with reporting and tracking. Perhaps most importantly, the system improves patient safety, which is the number one goal for all healthcare facilities.
