Intuitive MB (Intuitive Medical Buildings) announced today the U.S. release of its “Smart Hospital” medical building operating system, according to a press release.
The company says the system is based on software developed and used by commercial real estate (CRE) and healthcare organizations in Europe and utilizes Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence and machine learning to monitor building functions and provide energy and maintenance savings.
Powered by KTERIO, Intuitive MB says those savings equate to 20% to 30% annually and states that the platform also helps healthcare facilities develop and maintain ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) strategies.
“After closely following the results this operating system is achieving within commercial real estate, we are excited to bring this unique technology to healthcare providers, seamlessly integrating disparate systems into one smart, intuitive interface,” Intuitive MB Chief Executive Officer Steve Simpson stated in the release.
“The technology is already proving it can make meaningful differences for healthcare facilities focused on innovative strategies and ESG to make the best use of resources as a way to improve overall patient care,” Simpson said.
The operating system includes a secure facilities management ecosystem with 24/7 service center monitoring, which enables real-time insight and support to facilitate management teams for overall building operations. In addition, the company provides a customizable desktop and mobile dashboards for viewing these insights.
To support the launch, Intuitive MB has formed strategic partnerships with two U.S. firms, Realty Trust Group (RTG) and PYA, in order to bring the smart platform to healthcare organizations across the country.
Intuitive says the relationship with these firms grew from an acknowledgement that real estate is one of the top expenses for healthcare providers, and that this need has been underserved. The two companies have worked as a single enterprise for the past 24 years, with extensive partnerships across hospitals, physician groups and property owners, to accommodate real estate needs and concerns.
“Healthcare has a critical need to find cost savings, and regulatory compliance requires constant vigilance. We are pleased to introduce this new technology to our clients involved in the delivery of healthcare across the country,” stated Greg Gheen, president of RTG, in the release.
