According to the United Nations, by 2050, the world’s population aged 60 and over will double (from 841 million in 2013 to 2 billion). This rapidly aging population will place unprecedented demands for services on healthcare facilities, outpatient clinics, and aged-care facilities around the globe. At the same time, healthcare costs are also rising, budgets are shrinking and maintenance issues are increasing. Together, it’s the makings for either a perfect storm or perfect opportunity to find innovative ways to reduce costs while also improving the environment of care.

As the Healthcare Internet of Things has found an obvious home in connected technologies such as telehealth and wearable health monitoring devices, the potential for leveraging IoT in other areas of the hospital is gaining momentum.

Michael Sullivan, Vice President, Global Healthcare Solutions at Schneider Electric will be sharing his insights on how to “Improve Hospital Support Systems and Facility Efficiency with IoT.” This session discusses new operational efficiencies that can be achieved in hospitals by leveraging IoT to improve support systems and the efficiency of the hospital facility and infrastructure. He will also share numerous stories from customers who have already adopted the latest in Healthcare facility IoT solutions, from connected products, and edge control to digital services, apps, and analytics.


Mr. Sullivan’s presentation will take place on Day 2 of the event, October 26th, 2016 from 12:00-12:45 in Room 4.
