Schneider Electric, the global specialist in energy management and automation today announced the successful completion of a strategic project with Europe’s largest centre for ophthalmic treatment, Moorfields Eye Hospital.

Founded in London in 1805, Moorfields Eye Hospital employs 1,800 staff who treat thousands of patients each year. This establishment is reputed for providing its patients with an exceptional level of care, which is only made possible with an efficient and highly available infrastructure that provides site managers with the required level of insight and control over their facility.

As the oldest and largest centre for ophthalmic treatment, teaching, and research in Europe, Moorfields Eye Hospital has recently invested in a Schneider Electric EcoStruxure for Healthcare solution in its drive to modernise its aging infrastructure. This EcoStruxure deployment features, among other facility insight solutions, RTLS (Real Time Location Systems) technology, which facilitates the tracking of staff, patients, and critical assets within the hospital premises, as well as monitoring general patient flows.

Schneider - Moorfields Eye Hospital"The EcoStruxure platform has allowed me to integrate all of the systems into one proper platform, which has helped us get all of the right data at the right time. We’ve spent less man hours maintaining the system and my opex costs have gone down," explains Chris Harding, Director of Estates and Facilities, Moorfields Eye Hospital.

"This project is a great proof point Schneider Electric’s collaboration with world-class healthcare institutions, to provide them with innovative, cost-effective solutions that promote efficiency and safety", said Chris Needham, Healthcare Solutions Lead at Schneider Electric. "As with all our customers, we are commited to a strong partnership with Moorfields, now and for the long-term. Thanks to our healthcare solution experts in the UK and our EcoStruxure IoT-enabled infrastructure platform, we are able to provides Moorfields with the facility insight they need to run effectively and efficiently."
