Smart Hospitals Creating the Best Possible Patient Experience
Smart Hospital concept is aimed at creating a single IT environment composed of automated "bricks" of specialized and auxiliary processes through cloud computing services, machine learning methods, and artificial intelligence.
As the population grows, the demand for healthcare services is rapidly increasing especially in the current COVID-19 crisis. By 2030, the world will be home to more than 8.5 billion people, so pressures on the healthcare system will only increase as time goes on.
How RFID and IoT enable smart care fencing in hospitals?
Tracking patients in hospitals helps to upgrade security, identify and address gaps in the internal processes, improve bed allocation, update doctors’ schedules and increase patient satisfaction. Patient tracking is based on RFID and IoT technologies, enabling tracking, data storing, and analysis.
Upon arriving at the hospital, a patient is given a bracelet with an RFID tag. Each tag features relevant patient information: ID, name, current condition and so on. As a patient moves around the hospital, readers placed on the walls and ceilings within the hospital and its surrounding territory receive the information about tags location and transfer it to the IoT cloud for processing and analysis. The analysis may be performed in real time.

Give your staff time to focus on what really matters: Patient care
Smart hospitals of the future will look very different from the hospitals of today and the past. Smart hospitals will focus instead on a core set of in-house services and connect with a broader ecosystem for delivery of other care services in an agile and efficient manner. In smart hospitals, digitally enabled clinical staff will be able to deliver better outcomes and a more integrated patient experience, and continuously innovate in care delivery.
