Power Continuity in Healthcare: Sizing and Configuring Power systems for Reliability and Cost-EffectivenessMarch 28, 2018
Technology, such as electronic medical records and digital imaging, have revolutionized healthcare by streamlining processes, increasing efficiency and, most importantly, improving patient outcomes. As these systems have become woven into the fabric of healthcare delivery, their continuous operation has become essential.
Simultaneously, the healthcare delivery network has expanded and become more interconnected with large hospitals often supporting smaller regional facilities,urgent care centers, outpatient surgery centers and otherspecialized facilities.
As a result, healthcare now represents one of the most varied applications for critical power systems. These systems must support growing data centers; critical operations, such as surgery rooms, emergency rooms and intensive care units; diagnostic systems and medical devices; and the technology that supports electronic medical records.
