IoT Controls in the Medical Industry
A recent fridge malfunction at a hospital in Cleveland has left many people concerned about the safety of medical storage. Earlier this month, a fridge used for storage of more than 2,000 eggs and embryos from 700 patients experienced an unexpected fluctuation in temperature. This caused the stored eggs and embryos to partially thaw. The viability of these eggs and embryos is still being determined.
Unfortunately, this type of incident is not uncommon. Without a way to accurately monitor temperatures, hospital storage units are often left for hours before a problem is detected. This puts medications, blood samples, organs, and other sensitive items at risk.
Damage or loss of items in medical storage presents a number of problems for doctors and hospitals. In addition to loss of reputation and possible lawsuits, many of these items are necessary for life-saving procedures and tests.
Monitoring Temperature With IoT Controls
IoT controls enable accurate monitoring of fridge and freezer storage. Medical facilities can use IoT sensors to track temperature and humidity of cold storage areas. These sensors can also be used to detect unauthorized access.
IoT devices collect and store a wide array of data. This data is fully analyzed for potential problems. The system sends out automatic alerts when temperatures fall below or above acceptable levels. This allows potential problems to be addressed before valuable assets are lost or damaged.
Mint Controls’ solution installs quickly and easily and fully integrates with existing systems. This allows for fast deployment and reduced costs. Connection to the Internet of Things enables real-time monitoring of medical equipment. Relevant data can be accessed at any time, from any location in the world. All that is needed is a mobile phone, tablet, or computer.
