Looking for IoT solutions for hospitals? Read to know how Veora can help you design smart hospitals.
We are at the juncture of a technological revolution that has put APIs or Application Program Interfaces at the forefront of innovation. APIs are effective tools to connect applications to other applications without the need for human intervention. This essentially means that applications leave endpoints that APIs can connect to and gather or submit data. This has the potential to connect seemingly unconnected systems to take data mining to another level.
Veora – an IoT Platform Solution
Veora is an IoT platform solution that enables connectivity with various systems and IoT devices. It collects data and provides insights and outlooks on smart buildings for hospital infrastructure and commercial and residential building complexes. It leverages the full potential of transformative technologies such as 5G, AI, and IoT that can revolutionize smart energy management, including lighting, power supply, smart meters, HVAC, and wireless power.
Veora does all this by leveraging the power of APIs to build a foundation for data storage, data sharing, and analytics of all sensory data related to the environment and energy consumption achieving sustainability goals.
Challenges in Hospital IT Infrastructure
In a typical healthcare environment, disparate systems are scattered like a big mesh in an ad-hoc manner using point-to-point connectivity. This often leads to a very complex landscape of systems that is very brittle, prone to failure, hard to monitor, and also creates a tight dependency on multiple systems.
And if you add new systems down the line – each integration becomes as difficult as the last one. The integration becomes complex and daunting. As a result just like other business entities, healthcare decision-makers end up with an ecosystem that is disconnected. Often they spend time just to keep the current system operational instead of innovating and all these results in negative financial and customer implications.
This gives rise to the classical IT budget conundrum of whether to invest in more technologies or just sustain what exists. Nine out of 10 (91%) IT decision-makers believe that unsuccessful digital initiatives will negatively impact revenues in the future. The situation is getting even worse when we find that a whole slew of new-age technologies (IoT, Mobile, Big Data, Cloud) are becoming mainstream in every other industry.
How do we solve these challenges?
One logical way to solve this gap is by increasing reuse and consumption and by implementing an approach that will allow you to adopt innovation. By implementing a platform that will take capabilities outside of the core IT and technical teams.
Introducing Veora for Hospital Infrastructure
Built using the MuleSoft API Framework Veora, the IoT Solution for hospitals, enables interconnectivity across all your systems and devices thus enabling organizations to continue working with existing infrastructure and yet leverage the power of digital innovation through data connectivity.
The following diagram demonstrates how different devices in an Out Patient Department can be connected via the Veora platform.
Veora, one of the leading IoT solutions for hospitals, offers many advantages such as-
- Connect systems 5X faster
- Reduce maintenance costs by 66%
- Deliver products up to 4X faster
- Drive consumption and reuse
- Integrate IoT and Big Data 60% faster
- Change data sources easily
By building an API-driven infrastructure organizations using multiple systems (legacy or otherwise) can start laying a foundation for data storage, data sharing, and analytics of all sensory and application data. Furthermore, organizations now can plan to design smart apps based on the shared data from multiple sources to create proactive intelligence driving efficiency in service and product delivery, enriching customer experience, and driving loyalty.
APIs offer a host of opportunities from simple revenue increases to creating commercial partnerships or even extending functionality and encouraging product innovation for both businesses and governments. Right from building smart cities to creating digital bridges across organizations APIs are paving the way in today’s digital innovation culture. While the API economy is flourishing, it is yet to reach its full potential. However, healthcare, media, finance, and real estate companies are adopting API-focused strategies and IoT solutions to drive innovation in their organizations.
