Optimising Healthcare Estates Through Technology

Company News
Service Works Group (SWG) has launched a new white paper examining the impact of transformative technology on healthcare estate management.

Investment in healthcare is typically subject to high levels of scrutiny, none more so than within the NHS. It is generally accepted that funding designated to public sector must extract maximum value wherever possible and estates are expected to demonstrate how they go about this, often in a meticulous way. The Carter review, published last year, identified a number of issues that needed tackling if the NHS wants to make significant savings. Tellingly, the report demonstrated the need for real-time monitoring solutions that assist both staff and facility managers when going about their day-to-day work.

Considering the sheer amount of floor space that healthcare occupies around the world, and the financial and health and safety demands that are intrinsically tied to it, the need for low-risk solutions for optimising management and service delivery is clear. So what can be done?

 

The above question provides the rationale for Service Works Group’s (SWG) latest white paper. Titled ‘Optimisation of Healthcare Estates Through Technology’, the document explores how digitisation is at the heart of promoting patient-centric healthcare. Using the latest developments in technology, and case studies from SWG’s portfolio, the paper also demonstrates how facilities management software is now best placed to ensure large estates make the most of their assets and help current infrastructure keep pace with the demands of delivering advanced healthcare in the 21st century.

 

Gary Watkins, CEO of Service Works Group, comments: “This new white paper demonstrates the power of workplace technology and how it can progress the management of complex estates. FM software provides healthcare estates personnel with immediate access to business critical information, in turn helping organisations to operate better and improve patient comfort and satisfaction – which is the bottom line for anyone working in this sector.”
