While a lot of healthcare #IoT spend goes to smart beds and smarter robot arms, a surprisingly large chunk is going into the plant itself. Smarter buildings with safer HVAC can and do save lives. And cash flow. New hospitals, clinics, and ambulances are easy. Retrofitting with smarter heating, ventilation, and air conditioning is slower, costlier, & harder to install, but will protect more patients. Systems that can afford it will invest ahead of the next contagion.
