Transforming Moorfields Eye Hospital with EcoStruxure for Healthcare

Project Overview:

Moorfields Eye Hospital, a renowned medical institution with a century-old legacy, embarked on a transformative journey to modernise its infrastructure and enhance operational resilience. Partnering with Schneider Electric’s EcoStruxure for Healthcare, the hospital aimed to integrate diverse systems, improve power monitoring, and elevate patient safety.

 

Challenges and Objectives:

The challenges facing Moorfields Eye Hospital were multifaceted. Its aging infrastructure required updates to meet modern healthcare standards while ensuring uninterrupted operations. The hospital sought to:

  • Integrate various building systems into a centralised platform.
  • Enhance operational efficiency and reduce operating expenses.
  • Improve power monitoring for critical hospital operating theatres.
  • Enhance patient safety and experiences through innovative solutions.

 

Solution: Resiliency, Efficiency, and Patient Safety with EcoStruxure for Healthcare

Moorfields Eye Hospital embraced Schneider Electric’s EcoStruxure for Healthcare solution, consisting of key components:

  • Edge Control: EcoStruxure Building Operation streamlined the integration of building systems, resulting in reduced costs and improved efficiency.
  • Connected Products: The Real-Time Location System (RTLS) provided insights into patient journeys, optimising patient flow and enhancing experiences.
  • EcoStruxure Power Monitoring Expert: This solution ensured critical power information was readily available, guaranteeing patient safety during surgeries.

 

Implementation:

EcoStruxure Building Operation seamlessly integrated disparate systems into a unified platform. The RTLS system enabled the hospital to track patient and item movement, leading to optimised patient flow. EcoStruxure Power Monitoring Expert offered essential power data for surgical environments.

 

Results and Impact:

The implementation of EcoStruxure for Healthcare yielded the following outcomes:

  • Improved power monitoring for hospital operating theatres, enhancing patient safety.
  • Reduced operating expenses and improved staff productivity through streamlined maintenance.
  • Enhanced patient experiences due to optimised patient flow and reduced wait times.
  • Simplified hospital infrastructure management through a unified interface.

EcoStruxure for Healthcare has helped us get all of the right data at the right time and spend less man-hours maintaining the systems, lowering my OpEx costs.
