|Future of Smart Hospitals|
|Concept Definition, Application, and Growth Opportunities|
The entire industry has probably heard the term of ‘Smart Hospitals’ or the ‘Intelligent Hospitals’. However, only a few truly understand the concept, as there is plenty of ambiguity around the term, with each stakeholder defining it in a way that relates to themselves and their services. Some even confuse a digital hospital to a smart hospital. However, an all-encompassing approach, which defines every element of the concept is lacking. Application of the concept is also a challenge – very few hospitals have the financial resources to implement all the smart solutions necessary to become a smart hospital. However, there are strategies that can enable implementation of smart solutions in a piecemeal approach to become smart. Indeed, a majority of existing global hospitals already have or are likely to implement smart solutions. A few smart hospital projects do exist already and are spread across the globe. Additionally, a majority of the new hospital projects (brownfield and greenfield ventures) in the hotspot areas of Canada, Nordic regions, and Australia are likely to be full-scale smart hospital projects.
