Preventive maintenance is a schedule of planned maintenance actions for hospitals aimed at the prevention of unforeseen breakdowns and failures.
The number of connected and interconnected devices is increasing, and there have been many health applications developed that could monitor different kinds of data through smartphones and other “wearable” sensor devices. On the OT side, the Cloud and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technologies allow the development of secure web applications for the remote management and monitoring of those Objects and data: this can benefit both the consumer market and the B2B markets.
Hospital preventive maintenance tracking
The primary goal of preventive maintenance is to prevent the failure of hospital equipment before it actually occurs. It is designed to preserve and enhance equipment reliability by replacing worn components before they actually fail.
Preventive maintenance activities include equipment checks, partial or complete overhauls, repair at specified periods, oil changes, lubrication, and so on. This helps increase uptime and reduce hospital maintenance costs hence reducing operational overheads again. Our team has been vested in the R&D of such devices and has been able to successfully complete multiple projects that come under this segment. We make use of world-class Bluetooth devices, bundled with our innovative platform in order to help our client base tap into these benefits.
In addition, biomedical engineers can record equipment deterioration so they know to replace or repair worn parts before they cause a system failure. Recent technological advances in wireless asset monitoring have enabled even more accurate and effective equipment maintenance. And, as indicated earlier regular work schedules of technical and housekeeping staff can be monitored on a regular basis to ensure they complete scheduled rounds as stipulated.
Moreover, the advantages of controlling repair costs, avoiding warranty costs for failure recovery, reducing unplanned downtime, and eliminating the causes of failure, predictive maintenance employs non-intrusive testing techniques to evaluate and compute asset performance trends. Additional methods used can include thermodynamics, acoustics, vibration analysis, and infrared analysis, among others.
The continuous developments in big data, asset tracking, workflow monitoring, communication, and cloud technology have created new possibilities for the investigation of information derived from industrial assets. Condition monitoring in real-time is viable thanks to inputs from wireless sensors, actuators, and other control parameters. Hospitals can utilize IoT data for compliance monitoring and to evaluate the performance of an instrument and optimize test results in realtime, with quality control and accreditation rules, and calibration trends.
All in all, these features and the smart hospital solution as a whole promise to elevate your hospital standards and ensures to mark your hospital as one of the most advanced medical facilities in your region.
