Digitization, automation, and technological enablement are profoundly affecting industries today. It is no exception when it comes to healthcare delivery. In addition to short-term reasons such as cost control and efficiency optimization, long-term factors such as improved accuracy and fewer errors encourage the adoption of new technologies.
According to the market database, modern technology has changed consumer expectations. In general, patients nowadays want healthcare services available efficiently, comfortably, and in a near-normal setting. Thus, the whole paradigm of care delivery is changing, and the changes will probably accelerate in the years to come. As a result, hospitals at the center of healthcare delivery systems are looking for a new role or forced to rethink their responsibilities.
There have been many recent attempts at transforming cities into “smart” cities by implementing new technologies. Typically, these cities have smart hospitals that are ready for the future. To improve outcomes and costs, hospitals are integrating new technologies into their design and operations. In addition to improving care within a smart hospital, the technology contributes to a broader healthcare delivery ecosystem.
Despite a rapidly evolving healthcare delivery system where hospitals no longer play a central role, the U.S health systems prioritize financial recovery and innovation following the pandemic. Organizations must reassess their investments in infrastructure and emerging technologies to ensure they support the future of healthcare and provide services more efficiently and cost-effectively.
Samsung to optimize smart hospitals
According to the market database, Samsung Electronics America has unveiled its latest innovations for transforming hospitals and healthcare facilities through technology. In hospitals, Samsung’s technology helps improve the quality of care while reducing operating expenses.
Healthcare organizations can advance hospital initiatives with Samsung solutions that help patients engage bedside with education and entertainment, transfer and manage their care seamlessly after discharge, and much more. In addition to improving patient satisfaction, this approach optimizes communication processes and enhances staff efficiency.
According to the market database, the company offers various healthcare solutions, including NT690U Series television. The NT690U can inform and educate patients more efficiently and effectively with educational videos and interactive content when paired with pillow speakers. This pairing can help patients experience their journey to healing more profoundly by providing access to a wide range of entertainment options, educational material, and video conferencing capabilities.
Samsung and Logitech have partnered to offer foundational and easy-to-manage telehealth solutions to advance patient care regardless of location. They have designed complementary systems to improve collaboration and productivity in any healthcare environment. These systems streamline the delivery of safe, effective care, wherever and whenever it’s needed most so that patients can thrive. In Samsung’s extensive lineup of monitors and commercial displays, clinics will be able to find a display solution to fit their needs. The collaboration devices from Logitech include Meetup, an all-in-one conference camera with a 120-degree field of vision, and BRIO, which supports UHD video conferencing with 5x digital zoom in FHD.
The market database states that healthcare providers and patients can choose from Samsung’s range of secure mobile devices. Samsung smartphones can streamline clinician workflows and lower computing costs for healthcare organizations. A Samsung phone can consolidate multiple clinical apps in a smart hospital, allowing it to run multiple applications at once. Providing hospital patients with access to information on a Samsung tablet helps hospitals improve patient satisfaction and achieve better outcomes. In addition to Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act-compliant device security, Samsung’s healthcare devices include Samsung Knox. It is a government-certified module that encrypts Protected Health Information (PHI) on Samsung devices.
As part of the company’s Grants Support Program, healthcare organizations can apply for federal and state grants to advance smart hospital initiatives. Almost all public sector agencies in the U.S receive funds from the Federal and State governments. Many government agencies are understaffed or lack experience in developing grant programs to help them leverage technology to advance their missions and impact their communities. As part of Samsung’s Grants Support Program, hospitals, clinics, and other healthcare organizations receive information about grants, custom funding, and consulting to support their development of project ideas, getting technology-rich projects funded, and extending their projects. The Smart Hospitals market and its 10-year business outlook can be understood using Global Market Database.
