Compared to traditional hospitals, smart hospitals provide better patient outcomes and experiences, as well as improved hospital operational efficiency and workflow. Smart hospitals utilize integrated technologies to deliver seamless and highly efficient healthcare tailored to each individual. Through the Internet of Things (IoT), devices and personnel can be efficiently tracked and coordinated to ensure that patient wait times are minimized and patient treatment is optimized. Smart hospitals allow for rapid response times during emergencies through the sophisticated coordination of elevators, staff movements, patient health records, and surgical suites to maximize emergency response effectiveness. Other smart hospital solutions include automated pharmacy systems and medical robotics, which reduce human error and the burden of labor and care.
Implementations of isolated digital technologies alone do not make a hospital “smart”. The interconnectedness of people, systems, building infrastructures, and devices is an important aspect of a smart hospital. Additionally, the utilization of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning is important to gain insights from the ample data created in smart hospitals. Smart hospitals rely heavily on the IoT technology stack.
