Benefits from Buddy Ohm:
Targeting quick reduction wins
Lighting, heating, cooling, and hot water systems account for most of energy used in hospitals and healthcare centers – between 60–80%. Gathering real-time data from these systems can identify areas for improvement and expose poor performing equipment. Every efficiency gained will impact the lifespan of the facility and help inform other areas for improvement. It also helps the facility team cover more square footage with less effort.
Monitoring for better comfort and safety
Hospitals and healthcare facilities are all about providing excellent care and comfort to help their patients recover, and their staff to function at their best. Buddy Ohm’s temperature and humidity monitoring can ensure that patient and operational facilities are conditioned appropriately. Refrigerated food and medical areas need to stay cold, recovery rooms need to stay warm, both are critical to the performance, safety and comfort of the facility. Buddy Ohm can monitor all these areas in real-time with glance-and-go dashboards for nursing staff, and alerts should indicators fall outside the safe range.
Facility-wide monitoring and alerting
Hospital facilities can range from small to the very large, and Buddy Ohm can help ease the burden of facilities staff to cover every square foot at once. Ohm’s wireless connectivity and easy installation allows for complete coverage across the entire facility, including the oldest to newest systems and buildings. Ohm’s operational portal and alerts provides an easy way for facilities staff to check in on critical systems without running all around campus.
Be better when it comes to sustainability
According to the International Energy Agency, air pollution is now the fourth largest killer, responsible for the deaths of 6.5 million people annually. The main driver of air pollution is the energy industry. Conserving natural resources has a direct link to improving human health. Anything that can be done by a healthcare facility to reduce its impact on the natural environment will have a positive impact on the health of the wider community. More and more hospitals and health facilities are implementing systems and technology to improve the lives of those inside, and outside their facility.
