Information technology is being integrated throughout healthcare operations to improve patient care, service levels and operating costs. Through the use of technologies such as digital diagnostic equipment, electronic medical records and patient RFID, the healthcare industry is benefiting significantly from increased accuracy and efficiency. However, heightened technologies raise a need for infrastructural technologies, such as power protection.
The Joint Commission requires healthcare facilities by code to have a backup generator in place � not an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) � which could result in 10 seconds of downtime in a power outage before the generator kicks on. Learn how installing a UPS system, either using a centralized approach or at the device level, can bridge the power gap and provide continuous uptime in this mission-critical situation.
