A patient-centred hospital focuses all resources on patient care and provision. To support this, a healthy building should not hinder or restrict the people who inhabit it. With this in mind our Computer Aided Facility Management (CAFM) system SeawoodFM, enables even the most complex healthcare buildings to run at maximum efficiency, saving time, reducing costs and freeing up resources for frontline care.
Each facility has its own dynamic database of as-built drawings and documents. It’s designed to be easy to use to allow daily management of a hospitals facilities. Using advanced software we take existing data to consolidate drawings and information into an accurate electrical, mechanical, and architectural as-built model and database. This information can then be accessed, queried and leveraged through a web-based interface at any time and from any computer with internet access. This provides operational convenience for clients who have multiple sites, or who may wish to monitor after hours from an off-site location, ideal for a 24-hour hospital.
By engaging with real-time information the database can produce a ‘live’ model of a hospital’s FM capacity and needs. Furthermore, by allowing spaces to be planned in meticulous detail, SeawoodFM can reduce travel distances, giving staff more time to carry out their core work – caring for patients.
In practice, this means efficiently managing essential building services like lighting and ventilation, while minimising downtime for inspections and emergencies. The system’s capacity to perform indepth risk analysis also supports the planning and coordination of projects.
