Although temperature monitoring is easy to think of in the context of restaurant food safety, temperature controls are a crucial aspect of several others—including agriculture, healthcare, and industrial applications. For this blog series, we’ll discuss how temperature and other environmental monitoring can be applied in each of these industries, and how automated monitoring can benefit your business.

With the rise of smart technology applications in virtually every industry, the healthcare world is also beginning to explore the possibilities of the Internet of Things (IoT). Measuring temperature and humidity are a great use case for healthcare, with applications in operating rooms, specimen storage, perishable inventory storage, pharmacies, laboratories, and research. VeriTemp, VeriSolutions’ automated temperature monitoring solution, replaces the complicated systems of the past and provides healthcare users with the reliable, easy-to-use system they deserve. So what exactly are these sensors used for in healthcare?

  1. Protect temperature- and humidity-sensitive inventory and environments

    Automated monitoring systems, like VeriTemp, ensure storage environments and operating rooms remain in safe ranges, and notifies users if the measurement ever falls out of range. When users receive notifications they can take immediate action to correct the issue, thereby reducing risk for patients and protecting valuable inventory and specimens.
  2. Reduce security risk and simplify deployment with cellular connectivity

    Many temperature monitoring systems are confusing and difficult to use, not to mention the red tape imposed by institutional Wi-Fi. Smart solutions like VeriTempallow you to install the system in fifteen minutes or less, without concerns of network vulnerability. Once the system is up and running, they’re equally easy with an easy-to-understand, no non-sense web application.

  3. Make record keeping easier than ever

    Accurate record keeping is absolutely crucial in healthcare—if mistakes are made, people’s lives are potentially at risk. Smart sensor solutions keep records automatically, limiting the possibility of error. With VeriTemp, temperature and humidity data are wirelessly transmitted to the cloud so 100% accurate information can be accessed from anywhere, at any time.
