Description

Upgrading technology in older hospitals is crucial to enhance patient care, improve efficiency, and keep up with modern healthcare demands. Without these technological advancements, facilities rely on legacy CMMS solutions that handle basic work order management but lack integration and robust features. By adopting an integrated system of technology, facility management can become streamlined and operate without the burden of obsolescence.

In this session, hear from thought leaders prioritizing cost-effective technology, integrating legacy equipment, and adopting smart hospital solutions essential to upgrading older healthcare facilities.

Learning Objectives:

1. Outline the costs involved with neglected maintenance and aging hospital system upgrades.

2. Analyze operational shortcomings faced by outdated technology in older facilities.

3. Identify specific instances in which older technologies have impacted patient care.

4. Compare recent technological developments and capabilities against the capabilities of older technologies in your facility.
