Article Title: What is an intelligent hospital?: A place where technology and design converge to enhance patient care
Abstract: Simply put, an intelligent hospital is one that works better and smarter. It's better because it's resourceful, creative, and perceptive about what patients and doctors need, and it's smarter because it's astute and inventive when it comes to weaving together diverse technologies to enhance patient care. Driven not only by new regulatory requirements but by financial constraints and reductions in staff that require us to do more with less, institutions must now reevaluate their operational processes at all levels. And, while technology is important in an intelligent hospital, it's not the only focus. Facility design is also critical, including infrastructure and room design conducive to optimizing the management of patients, supplies, and devices.
