Intelligent Building Solutions Bring Competition, Profitability, and Benefits to the Healthcare Industry

Economic pressure on the healthcare industry is forcing hospitals to improve performance. Pressure to reduce costs is leading to the consolidation of industry and increasing energy and operational efficiency. Meanwhile, the industrywide shift toward value-based care is creating opportunities to implement technology solutions that enhance patient experience. In addition, competition from players outside the healthcare industry is putting more pressure on traditional players to improve patient satisfaction.

Building solutions consisting of connected devices, intelligent analytics, and enterprise platforms can help hospitals reduce costs while improving patient satisfaction. These intelligent building solutions for the healthcare sector can integrate disparate systems to harness the benefits of leveraging available data. Building management systems (BMSs), video surveillance systems, admission, discharge, and transfer systems, real-time location systems (RTLSs), and more can be integrated to make hospital facilities more efficient, productive, and sustainable.

This Navigant Research report examines the opportunities presented by a more value-based, efficient practice of medicine. The study looks at the pressures healthcare organizations face and the subsequent adoption of intelligent building solutions. It also discusses how these solutions will increase energy efficiency and patient satisfaction by integrating building and clinical systems. Recommendations are provided on how to communicate the advantages of intelligent building solutions and how best to benefit from these solutions.
