Hospitals are hectic environments where medical staff must navigate through a maze of hallways, rooms, and equipment. One of the biggest challenges that medical staff face is locating equipment, a task that can consume significant amounts of time and resources. We take a look at technology that can help to free up medical staff's time so they can focus on patient care.
Hospitals are an integral part of healthcare and play a crucial role in saving lives. But, like all institutions, they also consume energy and contribute to carbon emissions, which have a significant impact on the environment. What steps can estates and facilities departments take to decarbonise healthcare?
Digital transformation is not a new concept, but many hospitals have been slow to adopt this approach. After the pandemic highlighted weaknesses in the healthcare sector, many hospitals have now begun to adopt a smarter approach. This new approach allows the healthcare sector to improve processes, monitor equipment, get real-time insights and collect important data to improve patient care. In this article, we delve into the technologies that hospitals can adopt to help them take a more patient-centric approach to healthcare.
Appointment no-shows not only cost hospitals a lot of money every year, but have a direct impact on waiting lists and overall patient experience. This is a significant issue, particularly in a time of budget constraints, financial pressures on healthcare systems and overworked staff. We delve into solutions that can help reduce missed appointments.
With a large chunk of hospital expenditure going towards real estate and utilities, it’s never been more important for estates and facilities managers to find ways to cut costs. Hospital facilities departments are adapting fast by adopting digital twins to help them get clearer insights into facilities, equipment, staff, and patients.
Surge capacity planning for hospitals is a key component in a hospital emergency preparedness plan. With the ever present threat of pandemics or large-scale emergencies, hospitals need to have equipment, staff and extra space available so that they can respond quickly. Surges affect different stakeholders in different ways. Depending on the user group - Operations & Facilities Managers, medical staff or patients - there are a number of technologies available that can help hospitals to be better prepared for these situations.
Hospitals are large and complex structures that often feel intimidating to patients. When patients are already dealing with potentially fragile health, the last thing care providers want is to expose them to more stress and overwhelm. Hospitals are now realizing the seriousness of the issue and many are introducing technology to improve wayfinding within hospital buildings. What are these wayfinding tools and how can estates and facilities management ensure that patients can find where they’re going?
In recent years, there has been an increasingly strong focus on patient experience in the healthcare system. Patient feedback is collected to measure patient satisfaction and management teams typically put emphasis on the quality of medical care when measuring how a patient feels about their hospital experience. In addition to medical and social care, what are other factors hospitals can consider when measuring patient satisfaction?
Hospitals are typically big, complex buildings that can be overwhelming for patients, visitors, and even staff to navigate. We’ve put together a collection of our top things that hospitals need to consider to create a more welcoming and comfortable environment.

This blog post continues our series on how mobile technology can help universities create a competitive advantage in offering a superior student experience. In the previous part, we discussed what sort of mobile content that makes sense to provide on a mobile platform. This post will focus on how universities can turn the tables and use mobile hardware technology to something useful for both students and the universities themselves.
Students are increasingly looking at the overall student experience when choosing a university. This means that universities need to adapt and focus on enhancing the student experience to compete for the best students. At the same time, studies show that mobile-related trends will dominate university campuses over the next five years.
Indoor maps continue to increase in demand as building spaces become larger and more complex. Many are also realizing that the benefits they bring also extend far beyond just wayfinding.
