Digitalization to benefit your business model
As the population grows, the demand for healthcare services is rapidly increasing. By 2030, the world will be home to more than 8.5 billion people, so pressure on the healthcare system will further increase over time. The pace of population ageing is also much faster than in the past, thus requiring more care. All countries face major challenges in ensuring that their healthcare systems are ready to make the most of this demographic shift. Digitalized hospitals are already showing they have the largest potential to make a 'rapid positive impact' on pressurized healthcare infrastructure and operations. Smart hospitals maximize productivity and provide better patient satisfaction and flexibility, thanks to digital transformation of the healthcare industry.
What is a smart hospital?
While there is no widely agreed-upon definition of a smart hospital, it denotes digital solutions that are being deployed by healthcare systems today. It is a system where smart machines and AI make a difference. A smart hospital triggers action where machines act on large amounts of data by building automation around it.
The future of the CSSD is smart
We believe that digitalized, smart hospitals need smart CSSDs, which enable modern and digital work processes, create higher work efficiency and make work in CSSDs easier and safer for everyone.
SmartHub - the gateway to a smart CSSD
SmartHub is our new software which runs either on-premises or as a Cloud application. It captures all machine data in real time from any Belimed machine and turns it into useful, well visualized information for CSSD managers. However, it isn't only a tool for CSSD management, SmartHub is designed to benefit the whole CSSD team thanks to its continuously evolving features for e-learning and troubleshooting.
A look into the Future
We are not fortune tellers, but a glimpse into advanced technology and changes already underway all point to smart systems; smart hospitals, smart homes, smart devices, … A smart CSSD is the next, or preferably one of the first, logical steps towards a smart future. Work is already underway to create super smart CSSDs in the near future and advancements in technology mean they will gradually grow to be even smarter. We envision that the integrated system in CSSDs will inform customers/users about future machine faults. A smart system will work flawlessly like a Swiss clock, informing you well in advance when a repair will be needed. In the future you will be able to plan your operations with more precision than ever. Can you imagine how beneficial it would be to work in a highly predictable environment that would consequently reduce costs and improve efficiency? Thanks to SmartHub, this kind of future is already knocking on the door.
