Where smart healthcare is part of the healing process

Smart healthcare starts with a vision for the future – one that integrates the best healthcare technology into the patient experience and delivers operational efficiencies over the campus’s lifecycle.  

Transforming healthcare for the future

Hospitals are under increasing pressure. Demand for their services is growing, fueled by an aging population. Existing healthcare facilities are struggling to cope and staff are in increasingly short supply. High energy consumption and CO2 emissions are forcing new approaches to reaching carbon neutrality. As costs mount and budgets fail to keep pace with demand, large investments are harder to obtain. To continue, hospitals must do more with less, using the budgets, infrastructure, teams and skills they have. But existing systems and approaches are often not up to the task. To excel in this pressured, fast moving, and changing world, hospitals need to transform, and digitalization is key to this.

A clear focus on healthcare needs

Every smart hospital solution is tailored to the healthcare facilities structure it is designed for. At the center lies a clear focus on efficiency, patient satisfaction, quality, and compliance. Smart hospitals create added value by systematically addressing the key drivers of every healthcare facility. Smart hospital solutions focus on optimizing cost and energy efficiencies, improving patient outcomes, increasing staff productivity, complying with changing regulations, and implementing campus extensions. This holistic approach turns smart hospital solutions into the answer for mastering the healthcare challenges of today and tomorrow.

Focus on the patient

Where patients can heal faster

When a patient is recovering in your hospital, they want to do so in a safe, healthy, and comfortable environment that helps them heal faster and foster better relationships with their providers. A smart healthcare campus can do all of that – and more.

Did you know?

The relationship between the healthcare built environment and patient outcomes is well-established.
International Journal of Indoor Environment and Health

The demand for healthcare services has never been higher, and patients have ever-increasing expectations about the quality of their treatment, healthcare services, and environment of care. Healthcare organizations and hospitals continually strive to create ideal environments for healing, and that often means creating smart hospitals that deliver the patient care of tomorrow.

Focus on the providers and staff

Practicing medicine with joy

Working in healthcare has never been more important or more challenging. Even though healthcare providers are exposed to constant risks, they rarely fail to focus on what’s most important: caring for the patient.

 

That’s why creating a work environment that’s as comfortable, safe, and healthy as possible is essential. And when that environment is smart enough to alleviate some of the routine and mundane tasks from our healthcare workers, providers can find themselves practicing medicine with joy.

Focus on the campus

Resilient, reliable, efficient operations and optimal space utilization

A healthcare environment operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days year – making it among the most labor- and energy-intensive campus environments to operate. It’s time to think differently about how to connect building, energy, and other systems in ways that create seamless patient experiences, alleviate burdens on clinical and non-clinical staff, and enhance financial resilience.

Hear from our experts: Improving Energy Resiliency in Healthcare Facilities

Healthcare institutions face a growing need to modernize, expand and improve energy resiliency, all while managing an increasing deferred maintenance budget that collectively exceeds $200 billion. In our latest webinar, learn strategies to improve energy resiliency through a comprehensive approach to energy management and deployment of new distributed energy technologies.  Also, learn about project implementation options that preserve capital, transfer operating risk to third parties, and create cash events through monetization of existing assets.

The right solution for every room

Integrating healthcare technology

Every healthcare campus has its own requirements, specialized applications, and philosophies for creating environments where patients can heal faster, providers can practice medicine with joy, and facilities operate efficiently and sustainably. Our comprehensive portfolio of smart healthcare solutions can create the right solution for every room on your campus.

Leveraging data to do more

Critical environments within your facility such as operating rooms, pharmacies, laboratories or isolation rooms require precise control for optimal performance, comfort and safety for patients and healthcare staff.

Sourcewell

Siemens is proud to partner with Sourcewell and their Cooperative Purchasing Contracts.

This agreement allows public healthcare facilities, including hospitals and nursing homes, to purchase solutions, equipment, and services through a pre-negotiated contract vehicle, saving time and eliminating the RFP process. And with allocated federal funding now available, this vehicle can accelerate the process. 

We can help

Technology for smarter healthcare

We spend 90% of our time indoors but according to the EPA indoor air is often two to five times more polluted than outdoor air. With Siemens SmartAir you can improve indoor air quality using your existing HVAC system. Our patented needlepoint bipolar ionization technology introduces ions into the airstream that combine with certain viruses and bacteria making them easier to capture in the filtration system.
