Hospitals Totally Integrated Power

Application Models  for Power Distribution
Guide by Siemens

Hospitals nowadays are subject to the increasing cost  pressure in the healthcare sector.  Yet at the same time, capital investment in innovative medical technology and  infrastructure is essential. That is why cost-efficient operation is at the focus of efforts, though of course not to the detriment of medical quality. The conflicting aims of optimizing operating costs and maintaining absolute availability of the medical equipment pose new challenges to 
hospital managers.

From a hospital to a health centre

The demands on hospitals are becoming ever more complex:

• Overarching concepts covering different medical disciplines as well as outpatient,inpatient, and partial-inpatient care structures have to be integrated

• Specialist staff need to be provided with optimum support in their day-to-day work by suitable infrastructure

• Patients need to feel like customers and be treated with 
the same respect

• Environmental pollution needs to be minimized by careful use of resources

• Unused buildings on hospital sites have to be reconfigured for future usage, for example, as:

–  Doctors’ housing
–  Offices with sanitary amenities and pharmacy
–  Wellness centres or spas
–  Preventative care centres for quick and detailed health checking
–  Patient hotels
–  Hospices and elderly care homes

Totally Integrated Power (TIP) – incorporating comprehensive, cost-efficient, safe power distribution in buildings provides the necessary future-proofing and flexibility based 
on reliable, optimized power supply. It also has a positive effect on a hospital’s operating costs specifically with regard to the wide-ranging medical equipment that has to be powered reliably and cost-efficiently, round the clock.
