ThoughtWire, a Digital Twins provider for the built environment and Schneider Electric, a leader in digital transformation of energy management and automaton, recently announced a strategic partnership to create smarter digital hospitals that can operate seamlessly. The partnership will allow healthcare customers to take advantage of the connected hospital and reach their digital strategy objectives faster using ThoughtWire and Schneider Electric’s suite of solutions.
Working together will allow ThoughtWire and Schneider Electric to address some of the biggest issues that are currently preventing patient-centric digital hospitals. Healthcare facilities are currently operated in vacuums with fragmented information available form a number of different systems. Connectivity between facilities management and clinical operations is lacking, but patient and clinicians increasingly need a more seamless experience in the hospital environment.
“We’ve been working with our customers in healthcare for the past 10 years to orchestrate data from across critical clinical systems, OT systems, IoT devices, to build a real-time Digital Twin that makes it easier for clinicians to have full visibility into patient needs and the entire hospital workflow,” ThoughtWire CEO Mike Monteith said in a statement. “More recently, we’ve seen a need to connect aspects of building infrastructure like energy and environmental data to provide these insights about the care environment back to facilities teams.”
Working with ThoughtWire will help the Schneider Electric healthcare facilities customers to benefit from the connected hospital environment—where facilities management and clinical workflow operations are orchestrated seamlessly and each group has the required visibility to deliver optimum outcomes for the patients and staff. Meanwhile, ThoughtWire’s Digital Twin helps Schneider Electric improve patient outcomes with a data model of a hospital’s building systems, clinical and IT systems, Internet of Things (IoT) devices, workflows and people.
“We’re excited to be working with Schneider Electric on bringing these joint solutions to the healthcare market,” ThoughtWire Chief Commercial Officer said in a release. “This partnership represents an unmatched offering in terms of breadth and depth, providing the most comprehensive set of capabilities to create truly Digital Hospitals.”
“ThoughtWire’s market proven capabilities have helped hospitals achieve better efficiency, higher patient satisfaction, and cost reduction,” Schneider Electric Building Segments President Mike Sullivan said. “This partnership will further help Schneider Electric’s customers transform their hospitals and improve the lives of patients, clinicians, and staff.”
“ThoughtWire’s digital twin helps makes sense of data, driving greater insights and allowing us to create smarter buildings,” Schneider Electric Chief Technology Officer and Vice President of Strategy Rebecca Boll said in a statement.
