COVID-19-related deaths in senior care facilities have outpaced those in all other settings, which means that more and more people now choose and, in some cases, have no choice but to care for their elderly at home. In an article published in MedCity News, mSafety’s Arnol Rios considers how the latest innovations in wearable technologies and IoT can help caregivers address the challenges of providing cost-efficient easy-to-manage home-based care.
5 ways you can maintain social distancing using Nimway's technology.
Managing access to residential buildings, offices or other shared workspaces can be stressful and time-consuming. Hours are spent crossing town to meet new tenants and hand over keys, rescuing tenants who’ve lost their keys or waiting for handymen to show up. As a professional in this field, you’ve no doubt wondered how these tasks could be handled more effectively. We invite you to learn more about cloud-based access control - a new, easier way for property owners and facilities managers to control access to their buildings.
Chronic conditions cost the U.S. healthcare system $3.1 trillion dollars in 2019, and the burden of ongoing treatment and compliance impacts patients and providers alike. A recent mSafety study shows that U.S. consumers would be interested in using more remote health monitoring devices. Find out what else we learnt from our survey.
Working in any large building or office complex, many employees have come to accept certain time-wasting activities as the norm – like looking for colleagues, meeting rooms or free workspaces.
But not anymore. Nimway, the smart office solution from Sony, solves all your workplace navigation issues, freeing up time for employees and making your office a better place to work.
What hurdles and decisions await new market entrants?
In an effort to minimise the risk of contamination from COVID-19 and to step in early when it strikes, health tech providers around the world are looking to virtual care solutions such as connected wearables. Suitable for healthy as well as at-risk individuals, they offer unobtrusive remote monitoring to keep people safe without the need for face-to-face contact. But developing such an offer is not simple. Our US expert outlines the challenges for companies looking to enter this increasingly competitive market.
COVID-19 is making health providers think differently about the use of remote monitoring services. It is challenging the idea that such services are only relevant for the elderly or those living with chronic conditions. And it is shining a light on the need for early detection – not only for use in triage by healthcare providers, but also to avoid further spreading of the virus.
When we emerge from the corona pandemic the business landscape will have changed. We can expect a restructuring of supply chains, greater localisation, more automation and a shift in the balance between human capital and artificial intelligence. In order to prosper, companies will need to do things differently. What can they do now to become more ‘future-fit’?
Hospitals around the world are currently suffering from acute shortages of vital medical supplies. The other scarce resource is time. Hospital staff, who are pressed for time under normal circumstances, are now working harder than ever as patient numbers swell. Visilion services help alleviate both these problems.
Hospitals and other healthcare facilities often struggle to keep track of the hundreds of people passing through their buildings around the clock. This can lead to losses on many levels, and in the absence of a clear picture of the hospital’s access rights, the culprits are hard to identify.
Intended for users with an active lifestyle, the mSafety wearable device is designed to withstand the toughest conditions. Recently, our experts tested it for adherence to global Sony quality standards. Here we outline a few or the many standard tests conducted on the device.
Read about the pros and cons of connectivity technologies for use in hospital tracking system, and how Sony developers concluded that BLE was the best type of connectivity for their Visilion real-time location system (RTLS) for use in hospitals.
Administrators working in hospitals and other healthcare institutions need to keep track of 100s or in some cases 1000s of people coming and going daily. The sector has an above-average staff turnover and suffers from high levels of ‘insider’ crime – most notably, drug diversion. With the help of Criotive, hospitals can gain full control over who gets access, when and where.
Legacy lock hardware used to be an obstacle for facility management companies, hotel chains and large property owners who wanted to modernise their access management systems. Thanks to the Criotive cloud-based service, that’s all changing. Today, most brands of electronic locks can be integrated with our tech- and vendor-agnostic platform, allowing companies to transition smoothly to IoT.
Studies show that hospital staff spend up to 20% of their working time looking for equipment and people. This negatively impacts hospital efficiency and ultimately, patient care. To tackle this problem, Sony is cooperating with international medical and safety experts, Dräger, to finetune its real time location system (RTLS) Visilion for healthcare.
