Combining the best in technology, digital technology and artificial intelligence, whether from the market or developed in-house, with our healthcare expertise – this is the spirit that has driven Clariane for several years. It adopts a human approach to technology to leverage innovation with the aim of improving the comfort of patients, residents and caregivers and the safety of all.
Innovation at Clariane responds to three major challenges: continuously improving the well-being, autonomy and comfort of residents and patients, optimising quality of life at work for care staff, and controlling its environmental impact to promote more sustainable practices.
In practice: Three examples of technological innovation projects
Fall detection and prevention
The “Kaspard” image-free fall detection system prevents falls, which are a major cause of accelerated dependency.
In-room home automation
It allows patients and residents to remotely control lights and shutters using Alexa voice commands. In the same way, they can consult the menu of the day and the activities planned for the day. Building temperatures and indoor air quality are monitored remotely to ensure comfort and issue an alert if temperature or CO2 thresholds are exceeded.
Several heating system control solutions are being tested and deployed across the European building stock to improve the Group’s carbon footprint and enhance comfort. The meters will be connected to a dedicated network to monitor consumption and in the future, respond to all applications of the Internet of Things.
