Tomorrow's Hospital Will Include Digital Command Centers
October 30, 2017 - Contact FacilitiesNet Editorial Staff »
In the near future, healthcare facilities will be outfitted with a centralized clinical command center that collects real-time data, according to an article on the Fierce Healthcare website.
Experts envision hospitals using a central command center that mimics an air traffic control system.
The system would collect real-time data from wearable sensors to identify patients at risk for complications.
The Cleveland Clinic already has this type of technology, allowing physician and critical care nurses to monitor vital signs in the ICU on a digital wall with a color-coded risk status.
