Zyter, which is a digital health and IoT-enablement platform, has launched a smart hospitals solution.
Zyter said that the new offering connects a hospital’s disparate data systems, departments, people, and Internet of Things (IoT) technology devices on Zyter’s digital communication and collaboration platform.
Zyter Smart Hospitals integrates patient medical device monitoring at the hospital bedside and at home, patient tracking, care team collaborative communication, and medical asset monitoring and tracking through an entire network of connected IoT devices and sensors, the company said. Zyter’s solution also features a hospital navigation mobile application for patients and visitors, as well as smart, real-time monitoring capabilities for hospital building facilities such as HVAC systems, lighting and security systems.
“Zyter Smart Hospitals is at the forefront of digital transformation in healthcare with its smart IoT solutions that span the entire hospital ecosystem,” said Sanjay Govil, founder and CEO of Zyter “With Zyter, the next generation of smart and digitally connected hospitals will gain the competitive advantage of a safer and more personal patient experience, improved operational efficiencies for physicians and staff, and reduced building maintenance costs due to smarter energy management.”
Zyter said that key features of Zyter Smart Hospitals include:
-Hospital bed device monitoring, which improves patient safety and outcomes by collecting and providing nursing staff with real-time physiologic data from all of the various medical devices connected to the patient.
-A mobile navigation app, which is a Bluetooth-enabled app on mobile devices that guides patients with step-by-step directions to locations within the hospital.
-Asset monitoring, which provides a single interface for improved monitoring, control, and safety of all critical medical assets, including medical equipment, medicines, and vaccines. Using Bluetooth-connected devices, Zyter Smart Hospitals can monitor medication temperature and alert on any changes, as well as monitor the entire chain of custody of a vaccine, the company said.
-Smart facilities features, which leverage technologies such as 5G, artificial intelligence (AI) and IoT to ensure smart energy management for lighting, power supply, smart meters, HVAC, and wireless power.
-Patient tracking, to detect and alert staff whenever a disoriented dementia patient, or any flight-risk patient, attempts to leave the hospital room or building exits.
-Patient monitoring, which enables physicians to monitor the condition of post-surgery patients at home. Patients use a pre-programmed 4G-enabled device that automatically tracks and transmits date from their home medical devices to their physician.
The solution, which the company says is ready for 5G connectivity, enables hospitals of all sizes to upgrade from legacy IT and Wi-Fi systems to a private 5G-enabled IT or cellular network that supports multiple IoT devices, according to the vendor.
