Transforming Patient Care

Hospitals today are going through a digital transformation as they embrace technological advances to help improve patient care. While many of the endpoint solutions hospitals deploy bring new levels of precision and efficiency to clinical processes, integration across the hospital ecosystem and all points of care delivery—from registration to imaging, the operating room to the nurses’ station—is critical to fully realize the benefits available from a connected, intelligent hospital.

Smart hospitals are taking a holistic approach to infrastructure modernization, integrating digital and physical assets in a unified framework that ties the institution’s various clinical and business workflows and assets together. As a result, smart hospitals realize expansive data access across the health ecosystem, from hospital to clinic to provider and beyond, as well as accelerated clinical workflows, streamlined patient journeys, and the ability to deploy new lifesaving innovations as they are brought to market.

Frequently Asked Questions

A smart hospital deploys AI, IoT, 5G networks, and other technological advances from edge to cloud to seamlessly coordinate and align operations for accelerated and enhanced patient care. From registration to imaging, the operating room or the nurses’ station, the improved connectivity and breadth of data generated can deliver valuable insights to improve patient experiences, streamline clinician workflows, and reduce costs.

Seamless integration across infrastructure is fundamental to building a smart hospital. With the use of technologies like AI, IoT, and 5G networks from the edge to the cloud, achieving high levels of interoperability enables agility, broad data sharing and near-real time communications that define the smart hospital model.

Hospitals today are generating unprecedented volumes of clinical and business data, yet many lack the integrated infrastructure needed to fully optimize data in vitally important diagnostic and treatment decisions. Smart hospitals integrate assets and resources across the environment for near-real-time data access and analysis, informing and accelerating patient journeys, increasing operational efficiencies, and optimizing resource utilization for better experiences and outcomes.
