Schneider Electric, an energy management and automation company, and ThoughtWire, a provider of Digital Twins, have together announced a strategic partnership to create smarter digital hospitals. The partnership is meant to help healthcare customers take advantage of the connected hospital and achieve digital strategy objectives faster, acco5rding to the companies.

“We’ve been working with our customers in healthcare for the past 10 years to orchestrate data from across critical clinical systems, OT systems, IoT devices, to build a real-time Digital Twin that makes it easier for clinicians to have full visibility into patient needs and the entire hospital workflow,” said Mike Monteith, CEO, ThoughtWire. “More recently, we’ve seen a need to connect aspects of building infrastructure like energy and environmental data to provide these insights about the care environment back to facilities teams.”

Partnering with ThoughtWire reportedly allows Schneider Electric healthcare facilities customers to benefit from the connected hospital environment, where facilities management and clinical workflow operations are orchestrated seamlessly and each group has the visibility they need to deliver the best outcomes for patients and staff. ThoughtWire’s Digital Twin enables Schneider Electric to improve patient outcomes with a data model of a hospital's building systems, clinical and IT systems, IoT devices, workflows and people.

“ThoughtWire’s market proven capabilities have helped hospitals achieve better efficiency, higher patient satisfaction, and cost reduction,” said Mike Sullivan, Building Segments President, Schneider Electric. “This partnership will further help Schneider Electric’s customers transform their hospitals and improve the lives of patients, clinicians, and staff.”
