the Pavilion. The Step-Down / Med Surg area of the Intelligent Hospital™ Pavilion represents a moderate acuity environment responsible for managing a broad spectrum of patients. Patients are typically increasingly mobile and the clinical staff is more dependent on the delivery of critical information directly to the point of care.
The Step Down Unit is integrated with a proliferation of new and evolving technologies, including wireless information delivery, smartphones, medical devices and applications, coupled with wireless sensors and auto-ID, RFID / RTLS platforms, which has expanded the possibilities for improving healthcare delivery and patient safety. The area additionally supports the medical devices and systems required to provide physiological monitoring and assessment.
Within this simulated Step Down / Med Surg environment, you will see demonstrations of how diverse technologies and systems can be integrated through a series of use case demonstrations highlighting the impact on workflows and patient care. These use cases will further highlight the possibilities for process optimization and safety verification and the overall management of an institution's assets. This years pavilion focuses on patient safety emphasizing alarm management, validated medication delivery and process validation throughout the continuum of care.
The design of Step Down Unit and overall Intelligent HospitalTM requires close partnerships between end users, including physicians and nurses, healthcare administrators, and industry, to determine how existing technologies may best be combined and integrated into practice.
It is the goal of the Intelligent Health Association to raise the level of awareness of the available technologies and provide educational programs around research, standards, regulatory issues, operational flow and optimization.
