Mobile Robots in Healthcare
Webinar: Mobile Robots in Healthcare
September 12 | 11AM ET-US

The current labor shortage is greatly affecting hospitals. Automating dangerous and physically demanding work is the most logical place to start.  Safely transporting heavy loads of dangerous biohazardous materials using mobile robots is already happening. Freeing up humans to do more valuable and safer work while having more time for face-to-face interactions with patients leads to better outcomes and satisfaction for both the patients and the hospital staff. Join IFMA's Health Care Council and Christopher Barnes  for examples of various use cases for robots in healthcare.

Every facility needs consistent and reliable performance from the facility maintenance team. Regarding work management, we believe there are some simple "golden rules" that should always apply and would be necessary to establish consistent performance and build a foundational framework that enables improvement. We will discuss 8 "golden rules" for effective work execution management that should be adopted for any organization looking to leverage data-driven improvements in their facility service program.
