Demonstrating how healthcare FM can emulate Uber, and others, in leveraging IoT (the Internet of Things) and deliver results in -
1: Operational Flow: supporting and empowering frontline professionals in portering, cleaning, and other key FM-functions;
2: Automation: technology-enabled task-management; and
3: Tracking: leveraging RTLS (real-time location-services) to 'keep-tabs' on essential equipment, materials and people.
Traditional methods of managing patient-bed-hygiene can present huge time, logistical, employee-safety, infection-control and compliance challenges, for hospitals (manual-handling procedures in the bed-washing-process; dealing with potential contamination; patient-bed drying-time; overall co-ordination of bed-reprocessing, etc). This workshop will help signpost the pathway, for hospital facilities teams, to move towards an automation-supported ‘total-bed-management’ approach, delivering ‘100/100’ outcomes (100% safety / 100% of the time).
