Leading hospital adopts Ripples HEMS
Shekar Eye Hospital (SEH), a leading cataract and eye care centre based at Bangalore has recently adopted Ripples Hospital Environment Monitoring System (HEMS) to enhance the safety and security of patients admitted for surgical cases. Ripples HEMS has carved a niche for itself by being India’s first NABH-compliant device in the segment of environment monitoring products.
The wireless sensor modules deployed on the mesh network transmits data at preset intervals to an internal gateway device and provides dashboard information on hygiene and safety parameters inside the operation theatre. The data visualisation tools and alerts provide insights for the upkeep NABH standards in the OT.
The deployment of Ripples HEMS at SEH hardly required any efforts and the information from the operation theatre environment were made visible on the dashboard within an hour without any hassles of wiring or network cables or router configuration.
Besides, the layout being spread across many floors, the mesh network topology of our sensor modules came as a boon to the eye hospital in terms of ease of deployment and procurement of gateway devices.
Ripples HEMS in healthcare to leverage NABH accreditation
SEH will now have an edge in the process of certifying and renewal of their NABH accreditation, because of the data driven evidence for patient safety and security.
The team at SEH says, “..the Ripples HEMS device has proven to be a gem in easing our NABH-accreditation inspection process..”
In the next phase of the project, the management has asked for a rollout of condition monitoring system for critical equipment such as power systems, central air conditioners, water purifiers etc.
Tailor made for the health care sector
The wireless hospital environment monitoring devices operates at power levels similar to Bluetooth devices and at significantly lower levels compared to average cell phones. Also, the duty cycles (the amount of time the radios are actually on versus off) are thousands of times less than Bluetooth devices. It operates in the 2.4GHz frequency band according to IEEE 802.15.4 standard which has been deemed safe in the health care sector.
RipplesIOT also provides ready to deploy solutions for verticals such as smart manufacturing, warehousing, construction & indoor farming.
