Energy, Facilities and Sustainability Solutions for Healthcare
Transformative technological advancements in healthcare and the life sciences underscore the rapidly changing definition of the industry’s approach to health services delivery, infrastructure, and management. An enhanced reliance on energy-intensive computing, machinery, and human capital is re-shaping the sustainability challenges and opportunities for the industry as a whole.
Largely comprised of mission-centric organizations, the healthcare and life sciences sectors should gravitate naturally towards sustainability initiatives that seek to advance the health of the planet and its people.
These are the unique challenges that face the healthcare industry.
Rising Healthcare Costs
Healthcare is becoming more costly to deliver, thereby putting the entire health services delivery cycle under review for efficiency identification. Sustainability initiatives can streamline operations without endangering the quality of patient care.
Advancements in Medical Technology
Industry innovation means improved public health but also comes at a cost in hardware, software, and human skills. These innovations are part of the rapidly changing healthcare delivery infrastructure and will have novel implications on their overall ecological footprint.
Data Management and Privacy
Enhanced regulatory oversight of medical and patient data and privacy requires intensive data protection resources to keep patient data safe and to remain compliant. These resources come in the form of physical infrastructure, computing, and human skills. Each of these represent a unique set of energy consumption and efficiency implications for healthcare organizations.
Workforce challenges for healthcare organizations are both an institutional and regional challenge. In order to mitigate the impact of these challenges on patient care, healthcare organizations must make significant resourcing investments to secure the necessary talent to deliver the highest quality of care to the largest section of the population they serve. Identifying efficiencies in other core aspects of patient care can help offset these personnel costs.
Chronic Disease Management
The infrastructure required for the management of chronic diseases, including diabetes, cardiovascular conditions, and respiratory diseases generates a significant carbon footprint wherein a renewed emphasis on preventative care stands to have significant benefits both to the public health and the planet.
These are the questions facing decision-makers in the Healthcare industry, we are here to help answer them.
- Are there opportunities for my healthcare organization to improve energy efficiency? How can HVAC, water management, and electricity needs be streamlined to support more sustainable operations?
- How can we effectively manage energy use and monitor our various energy loads to maximize control over these systems?
- How can we ensure operations are unaffected by leaks and create a comfortable environment for patients, guests, and staff while safeguarding our budget?
- Can we eliminate trip and fall hazards and improve aesthetics in our parking lots and access roads?
