Schneider Electric Unveils EcoStruxure Solution for Healthcare Facilities
New, fully-integrated solution helps create more efficient, reliable and safer healthcare facilities
DALLAS – August 12, 2014 – Schneider Electric, a global specialist in energy management, today announced its new EcoStruxureTM solution for Healthcare which is designed to fully integrate clinical healthcare systems with infrastructure systems to lower operating expenses, reduce risk, improve clinical outcomes and increase patient satisfaction. The solution leverages interrelated data to better operate facilities, leading to improved energy savings and building life cycle costs as well as enhanced staff productivity and patient security.
The core of the EcoStruxure solution for Healthcare is an Integrated Control Platform that helps hospitals and healthcare facilities improve interoperability, efficiency and overall patient care by bringing together a large variety of hospital systems – including core mechanical, electrical, information and communication technology and security systems – into a single, intelligent control system. The seamless integration of systems ensures optimal operation and allows hospital staff to quickly and accurately analyze and respond to events to provide the most efficient, comfortable and secure environment possible.
“Hospitals are very complex environments that run on a multitude of stand-alone technologies for facility infrastructure and clinical systems, ranging from building environment controls to admission, discharge and transfer systems. A lack of interoperability between these systems can negatively impact the performance of a facility, patient satisfaction, and drive up operating costs,” said James Winstead, Director of Healthcare and Life Sciences for Schneider Electric. “Schneider Electric’s comprehensive EcoStruxure solution for Healthcare helps facilities address these challenges by providing true integration that produces a tested and validated environment for interoperability and efficiency.”
With energy consuming more than half of the typical U.S. hospital’s operating and maintenance budget, the potential to reduce energy consumption in existing and new healthcare facilities is enormous, as is the desire for improved energy efficiency. Schneider Electric’s EcoStruxure solution for Healthcare allows hospitals to achieve up to 30 percent in ongoing utility savings based on how the hospital is designed and built.
