In a single year, the NHS saved 10,000 hours of nurse time.

Save medicine and nurse hours

Patient safety is critical in healthcare. Labor-intensive systems, on the other hand, frequently endanger safety. Manual checks must be performed on a daily basis in many departments of a hospital and other healthcare facilities. To mention a few, these include assessing the temperature at which medicine is stored, checking the risk of Legionnaires’ disease, and checking for leaks to prevent mold.

Manual checks take time, which cuts into the time available for direct patient care. When checks are carried out during hectic shifts, important facts may be overlooked. Even when data is collected properly, it is frequently insufficient.

For example, checking the storage temperature of a drug every 24 hours would miss any variations that happened between checks. This could result in tainted medicine, endangering patient safety.

Previously, using technology to solve these temperature monitoring issues was difficult — or expensive. That is no longer the case, thanks to improvements in healthcare IoT.

Tangible results are seen quickly

The NHS has tangible results.

Disruptive Technologies’ sensors are now overcoming such challenges for the UK’s National Health Service (NHS) by building an automated cold storage monitoring system in collaboration with our Expert Partner Infogrid.

The Infogrid IoT system, based on DT sensors, is simple to use and inexpensive. In a healthcare facility, no technical knowledge is required to run or set up the system.

Because these sensors can retrofit existing assets in seconds, whole buildings and hospitals can transform in no time.

“The Infogrid technology has already helped the Trust achieve this aim, particularly in the area of pharmacy medicine storage. However, we see chances for better patient care and cost reductions across the estate in a variety of areas. These include situations that could cause Legionnaires’ disease, patient well-being (including optimizing ambient temperature for faster recovery and providing bedside support), fire safety, and much more. The system’s strength is that it can provide these benefits while earning a rapid return on investment.”
