Energy to Care Program Gaining Popularity
July 29, 2016 - Contact FacilitiesNet Editorial Staff »
The American Society for Healthcare Engineering's (ASHE) Energy to Care program helps healthcare facilities visualize and share energy data and performance metrics, according to an article on the Health Facilities Management website.
Participation in the program has climbed from 250 to 1,600 hospitals after changes were made in the program's dashboard program.
Energy to Care was designed to provide visualization of data to engage facility engineers, nursing staff, physicians, patients and C-suite.
In addition, the platform facilitates energy-conservation competitions among hospitals. While the EPA recognizes hospitals as Energy Star-certified only when they reach the top quartile in energy efficiency, ASHE marks incremental improvements through Energy to Care.
