In a post-pandemic world, the healthcare facilities management sector is expected to grow rapidly due to rising global healthcare expenditures, chronic diseases, and medical tourism in emerging countries. Being adversely affected by the pandemic, healthcare facility managers are scrambling to compensate for the staff shortage in insufficiently flexible buildings. While day-to-day healthcare facility management operations become more complex, facility managers are compelled to adopt newer strategies and measures. This is where digital transformation can flip the script in favor of facility managers. By combining people, processes, and technology, digital transformation can be achieved in healthcare facilities management to ensure ease of user experience.
Companies are now looking at facility management service providers that can help with asset tracking, energy consumption monitoring, security, inventory management, HVAC, and mobile capabilities, all under one single roof. Besides, most organizations have already transitioned to a complete or partial cloud-based operating module, allowing facility managers to view current information in real-time and make timely on-site updates This eliminates error-prone processes and ensures more accurate data, improving workflow and streamlining business operations.
To adapt to the changing technological paradigm, tools like robot facility monitoring and augmented reality integrated with IoT will become more prominent. Software providers are now committed to innovation, making room for AI and robotics in facilities management. As the number of facilities management service providers in the healthcare sector rises, it becomes imperative for business owners to weigh their options and identify the right service provider for their needs.
