BT, Microshare install smart IoT system for London hospital

Wednesday 16 September 2020 | 11:03 CET | News

BT and technology start-up Microshare have worked with the Royal Hospital for Neuro-Disability (RHN) in London to implement a smart IoT system to improve quality of care.

The use of smart facility data allows the 240-bed charity-run hospital to automate routine tasks, freeing up staff to spend more time with patients and residents. It will also help reduce energy costs. IoT sensors have been installed in rooms and on equipment to monitor things such as room temperature and occupancy, to track assets such as wheelchairs, and to monitor the temperature of fridges used to store medicines. 

BT is providing the secure wireless network at the hospital which allows the IoT sensors to send data, using LoRaWAN technology, as well as the cloud-based network management tools. Microshare provided the smart IoT sensors and connected them to its Microsoft Azure-based IoT platform.
