INSIDE INDUSTRY
Smart facilities for KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital
The project by ENGIE and UnaBiz is part of KKH’s ongoing continual effort to enhance their facilities for a more holistic healthcare environment for the benefit of patients

Healthcare facilities are complex ecosystems of different building types and services areas, each with specific compliance standards for temperature and humidity. The maintenance of these parameters is critical, as high temperature and humidity may threaten the integrity of pharmaceutics.

To enhance healthcare facilities and provide better patient experience, ENGIE and UnaBiz partnered KK Women’s and Children’s’ Hospital (KKH) and embarked on a Smart Facilities Management project with digitisation of temperature and humidity monitoring using low-power sensors to provide remote monitoring while providing a better patient experience and enabling timely intervention of anomalies.

Over 100 temperature and humidity sensors by ENLESS WIRELESS have been deployed around KKH in areas such as the intensive care units, outpatient clinics, patient wards and pharmacies.

Already, the hospital is seeing encouraging results in this pioneer project. Feedback gathered from the Facilities Management (FM) Department mentioned that they can quickly respond to the temperature alarm if the set point is exceeded.

By deploying sensors to collect data of room temperature and humidity, staff at KKH no longer maintain manual 24-hour daily temperature logs and can now avail more time to look after patients. Furthermore, digital records are much faster, and better for audit purpose.
