IoT to make hospitals smart

Smart hospital

The smart hospital encompasses lots of different applications of technologies to enable the hospital estate to operate as efficiently as possible.

The following areas are examples of where IoT technologies can be used:

  • Indoor navigation for staff and patients
  • Space utilisation – understanding how to use the estate to its maximum potential.
  • Patient & Staff Tracking – People/Attendee Tracking
  • Healthy building monitors -indoor environmental monitoring including temperature, humidity, air quality etc.
  • Energy usage monitoring and optimisation

If you would like to know more about CENSIS activity in this sector, let’s talk.

Health and social care

Smart hospital is one of the health and social care subjects explored in our CENSIS FutureTech programme.

This is an area where Internet of Things (IoT) technologies could deliver huge benefits and enhance people’s lives.


Sector knowledge

Within the FutureTech programme, CENSIS met with people from different sectors to hear their ideas about the transformative potential of IoT.

IoT technology will transform business operations across Scotland and impact every sector of the economy.
