WHEN EVERYONE IS WORKING TOWARDS THE SAME MISSION , IT CREATES AN ENVIRONMENT WHERE PEOPLE CAN THRIVE .
In hospitals , there is an increasing trend to integrate facility , clinical and cloud-based systems on converged networks . The way healthcare data is communicated between doctors and staff has gotten more advanced in recent years . Hospitals are adopting handheld devices to support diagnoses , inventory tracking , ordering medication and tracking patients ’ medical treatments . Connecting these tools into one facility network means these disparate systems can talk to each other in real-time , delivering advanced analytics and Machine Learning for the most up-to-date and comprehensive experience .
Hospitals which converge their networks may see improved clinical and operational efficiencies , enhanced visitor management and customer experience , reduced business interruptions due to predictive analysis , lower operational costs , accurate forecasting and management of capital expenditure and more optimised life cycle asset management .
The increase in converged networks also creates the need for a specialised service provider called a ‘ Master Systems Integrator ’ ( MSI ). The MSI needs to be well versed with in-house skillsets , expertise and capability across both the IT and Buildings domains . In other words , it needs to have a deep understanding of both IT systems and the physical environment – including how buildings are constructed , maintained and operate and how the IT systems are secured .
Honeywell ’ s vast experience and advanced technologies include cyberprotection , where we work with our customers to secure the OT ( Operational Technology ) environment . Our strong heritage in the development of Building Systems and smart edge devices , combined with our Cyber / ICT ( Information and Communications Technology ) capability uniquely positions Honeywell as a valuable MSI partner for our Healthcare customers . x
