Hospital and Clinic Monitoring for Compliance and Quality Control
Many hospitals and clinics possess a wide variety of refrigerated and frozen vaccines, medications, samples, blood, research cultures, and have a vested interest in protecting these mission-critical drugs and samples from equipment failure or malfunction, potentially leading to adverse environmental conditions.
A well-maintained hospital will train staff diligently on environmental requirements and limits for certain goods or drugs, and should have dedicated resources (emergency refrigerator farms, backup freezers in offsite locations) to manage emergency situations (such as extended power outages or equipment problems). Primary and backup remote monitoring systems with battery backup can play a pivotal role as a real-time first-sign indicator of trouble. In many cases, mission-critical systems like remote monitoring within hospitals will leverage cellular communication technology, as they meet a higher standard of reliability than do traditional WiFi networks
