Emerson and HID Global Partner to Provide Enhanced Environmental Healthcare Monitoring

Strategic collaboration adds another link to cold chain, helps
healthcare providers protect vital and temperature-sensitive medications
and vaccines

ST. LOUIS & AUSTIN, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Emerson (NYSE: EMR), a global technology and engineering leader serving
industrial, commercial and consumer industries, and HID Global®,
a worldwide leader in trusted identity solutions, today announced a
strategic collaboration to enhance monitoring capabilities that help
healthcare providers ensure proper temperature for vaccines, medications
and other bio-specimens.

Ensuring the quality and safety of life-saving vaccines, medications and
other healthcare specimens requires strict temperature monitoring and
control to maintain product integrity. The solution combines Emerson’s
expertise in environmental monitoring and the behind-the-scenes
refrigeration network known as the cold chain with HID Global’s broad
spectrum of connected health systems and Internet of Things solutions,
enabled by Bluvision™ (part of HID Global). This collaboration is
providing first-of-its-kind monitoring solutions for the healthcare
industry.

“Helping our customers monitor and improve safety and health is a
cornerstone of our business and mission, and we’re proud to bring these
solutions to the industry,” said John Rhodes, group president of cold
chain for Emerson’s Commercial & Residential Solutions business. “This
strategic partnership allows Emerson to extend our leading sensing and
connected technologies to help healthcare providers optimize their
operations and protect their life-saving treatments.”

The innovative solution combines automated alerts, audit trails,
condition monitoring and location services for a more advanced approach
to medical-grade temperature monitoring using Internet of Things
technologies. Leveraging HID’s Location and Condition monitoring network
services based on Bluetooth Low-Energy (BLE), the solution delivers
enterprise-wide pervasive connectivity, linking active personnel badges
with both temperature and vibration sensors to allow rapid and
cost-effective deployments at scale.

“Combining HID’s BLE network with Emerson’s environmental monitoring
sensors brings together best-in-class products to help healthcare
providers monitor temperature-sensitive assets as part of an IoT stack
that healthcare institutions can easily integrate into existing
workflows,” said Rom Eizenberg, vice president at Bluvision, part of HID
Global. “Hospitals can quickly increase patient safety, the quality of
care and pharmacy workflows while enabling more advanced capabilities
like the construction of Health System Digital Twins to better predict,
model and extract further efficiencies.”

The collective expertise of HID’s Healthcare IoT practice and Emerson’s
environmental monitoring for the healthcare chain of custody provides
exponential value beyond certified temperature monitors common for the
industry by combining machine, human and material traceability into
comprehensive solutions for a critical issue.
