National Health Executives hosted its last virtual event of the year, were we focused on NHS Estates and brought together a panel of inspirational speakers to discuss what technology is helping healthcare professionals manage and improve NHS estate.
Digital transformation in NHS Estates not only helps relieve the some of the pressure of an increasingly busy health service but tackles future demands head-on. Smart buildings enable Estates leaders to measure and control a building’s heating, ventilation, air con, lighting, security, and other systems centrally with a high degree of accuracy and efficiency.
Digital asset tracking and inventory management allow frontline clinicians to focus on patient care rather than hunting down equipment. The introduction of virtual wards may seem technologically demanding but ultimately results in less patients needing to be on site.
In this panel our speakers explored a range of different technology projects that are related to managing an NHS Estate to share some of the success stories and cutting-edge innovations.
