Zyter debuts Smart Hospitals
Zyter, a digital health and IOT-enablement platform, has debuted Zyter Smart Hospitals, an end-to-end intelligent solution that connects a hospital’s various data systems, departments, people, and IOT devices.
According to the company the solution is highly secure, HIPAA compliant, and customisable. It 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 a network of connected IOT devices and sensors.
It 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, security and more.
Sanjay Govil, founder and CEO of Zyter, says the company's smart IOT solutions span the entire hospital ecosystem.
He says Zyter Smart Hospitals enables "a safer and more personal patient experience, improved operational efficiencies for physicians and staff, and reduced building maintenance costs due to smarter energy management.”
The key features of Zyter Smart Hospitals include hospital bed device monitoring that provides nursing staff with real-time physiologic data from the various medical devices connected to the patient.
A Bluetooth-enabled app on mobile devices guides patients with step-by-step directions to locations within the hospital for a better patient experience.
Asset monitoring offers a single interface for monitoring, control and safety of critical medical assets, including medical equipment, medicines and vaccines. The solution can monitor medication temperatures and alert on any changes, as well as monitor the entire chain of custody of a vaccine from production, to the hospital, to the time it is given to the patient.
Another feature, Smart Facilities, uses technologies including 5G, AI and IOT to improve energy management for lighting, power supply, smart meters, HVAC, and wireless power.
Patient tracking detects and alerts staff should a disoriented dementia patient, or any flight-risk patient, attempt to leave the hospital room or building, while patient monitoring gives doctors the ability 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.
