IoT and the future of healthcare
Healthcare facilities around the globe are facing unprecedented challenges. An IoT platform is foundational to advancing a hospital's energy, operational, financial, and patient satisfaction targets.
Guidehouse Insights, a leading technology market research firm, recently surveyed over 600 global healthcare executives for this comprehensive analysis on the impact of IoT systems on healthcare facility operations.
The report analyzes market drivers and barriers to adoption, examines practical use cases, and provides a simple framework to help you implement an IoT-based platform in your facility.

Facility managers in healthcare buildings face a daunting task: keeping operations running smoothly at maximum capacity, or at low occupancy rates, while maintaining the safety of their staff. The challenge is to continuously adapt to new obstacles, changing business priorities, reduced facility staff and lower operating budgets. With a digitised power- and building-management system, there are tools to increase remote service capabilities, help control costs and maintain operations when resources are low.
Power availability is the most foundational aspect of facility operations and critical to a hospital's ability to achieve its mission. Maintaining high-quality, clean power is vital for ensuring that sensitive healthcare equipment always performs properly. Patient safety and business continuity depend on it — 24/7. Supplying safe power to life-saving equipment is paramount?
With an ever-ageing demographic, hospital infrastructure is under increasing pressure while facing the challenge of having to provide better quality of care. The IoT revolution can help to improve the reliability and comfort of the hospital's electrical and environmental systems, while making them more efficient, helping to control costs. While there are potential cybersecurity risks associated with digital IoT systems, the benefits largely outweigh them. It is still imperative for a hospital to manage an IoT cybersecurity programme to ensure that their devices and infrastructure are cybersecure and protected.
With different enforcement agencies applying a variety of regulations and guidelines, healthcare compliance is extremely complex. Nonetheless, compliance regulations protect patients and hospital staff. They help to mitigate the risk of unsafe buildings caused by poor design, layout, maintenance or operations.
Facilities teams must maintain extraordinary operations, so that their clinical teams can continuously deliver extraordinary care, every day. But a reactive approach to asset performance management exposes hospitals and clinicians to critical risks and uncertainty. Digitisation drives real-time, data-driven decisions through predictive analytics while proactive maintenance optimises asset availability and performance, keeping your operations more productive and profitable. Because in healthcare, prevention surely is a good medicine.
We help facilities teams and advisors maintain extraordinary operations, so that their clinical teams can continuously deliver extraordinary care, every day.
Our solutions enable real-time, data-driven decisions by optimising asset availability and performance through predictive analytics and proactive maintenance.
Healthcare facilities like the University of Rochester Medical Center utilise Schneider Electric's EcoStruxure for Healthcare solutions with smart building technology for power and building management systems to ensure operational efficiency.
Because in healthcare, operational excellence is the only option.
Smart technology delivers operational efficiency
Ensuring patient comfort
The well-being of hospital patients and healthcare professionals is driven by safety and satisfaction. As patient-centric care evolves, hospital buildings and technology must adapt to allow increased patient control to improve the experience and the quality of care in a healing environment.
We help hospitals like Nemours Children’s Hospital ensure their buildings are safe and healthy by protecting from electrical shocks, fires, and nosocomial diseases. We help enhance patient well-being by creating a healing environment with suitable lighting, views, temperature, clean air, and noise monitoring.
Because in healthcare, healing begins with safety and comfort.
