Greenfield, IN, April 22, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Sonicu, an industry leader in the Internet of Things and cloud-based monitoring solutions, has been chosen by Hendricks Regional Health to provide a system-wide environmental monitoring system that will increase patient safety and satisfaction throughout the health care provider’s entire enterprise.
Sonicu will install wireless sensor technology at 700 points within the Hendricks health system, including remote outpatient facilities and clinics, to monitor and measure temperature, air pressure differential, and humidity in a variety of health care applications. The system will also monitor sound levels in multiple patient care areas.
Sonicu sensors will remotely monitor hundreds of refrigeration units; pharmacy, food service and dining applications; and sound levels utilizing a cellular network to transmit the data to Sonicu’s cloud-based platform. The Sonicu system provides 24/7/365 alarming and data access on a fully scalable format that will eliminate manual data logging at all monitored points.
“Hendricks is a very innovative, forward-thinking hospital that is concerned with patient safety as well as operational excellence,” said Joe Mundell, Sonicu vice president of sales. “Instead of taking a piecemeal approach, they wanted to look at a system-wide process for automated monitoring.”
In addition to Sonicu’s remote wireless sensors and cloud-based data platform, the cellular network Sonicu employs to mesh data from Hendricks’ outlying campuses and facilities into the system also made Sonicu the right choice.
“By deploying everything through a cellular gateway, we are able to stay completely off of their network, erasing all security issues and eliminating additional work for their IT personnel,” Mundell said.
For Hendricks, effectiveness and efficiency drove the decision to Sonicu’s system.
“Our impetus in doing this was to take a look at our efficiencies,” said Martha Rardin, Hendricks Regional Health director of nutrition and dietetics. “How could we streamline our processes so that we could further focus on service delivery and the overall patient and guest experience?”
The company began implementing the system in February, Mundell said.
Based in Greenfield, Ind., Sonicu is an IoT innovation company focusing on health care and offering the first system-wide environmental monitoring solution for health care enterprises. Sonicu’s patented wireless sensors and web-based infrastructure provide a platform that is scalable and easy to implement to accommodate health care facilities and systems of any size. Sonicu solutions also work independently or in conjunction with existing IT systems. For more information, email Sonicu at firstname.lastname@example.org.
