Requirements

An efficient hospital solution which guarantees a high standard of medical care and affordable costs.

Solution

Total Building Solutions make a decisive contribution to optimizing costs and a comfortable room climate. The HiMed Bedside Terminals give patients direct control of various room functions and allow attending doctors and nursing staff to access the patient’s digital medical records.

Within the framework of Total Building solutions, the Desigo building automation and control system enables sophisticated air-conditioning control and generates air flow that removes dust and bacteria from the air in operating rooms.

As part of the hospital solution, a customized MM8000 danger management system monitors all functions critical to safety. A wireless RFID locating system guarantees the safety of patients in the hospital while also protecting valuable inventory from being stolen.
