Smart Bed Technology

The newest technology to be released by Hillrom is Smart Bed Technology. As Critical Care departments become under increased pressures due to caring for patients with more complex healthcare needs with fewer resource available, Hillrom understands that the future of technology, doesn’t only support the day to day tasks of healthcare professionals by reducing documentation, Smart Bed technology also assists with accurate and actionable data sent from the medical devices (such as Smart Beds) to improve patient safety and clinical decision making. Digitalisation of the NHS by 2024 is laid out within the NHS long term plan, and the launch of Smart Bed’s within the UK is step in right direction to achieve this target.
