The Humanitas Group includes the Istituto Clinico Humanitas (ICH) in Rozzano (Milan) and several relevant private clinics in northern Italy and Sicily.

Abstract

Humanitas is a private group of medical facilities based in Italy, offering medical care and promoting prevention initiatives, research and teaching. The Humanitas Group includes the Istituto Clinico Humanitas (ICH) in Rozzano (Milan) and several relevant private clinics in northern Italy and Sicily. The Humanitas group started a process of implementing real time monitoring of energy consumption as a means to aid the diagnosis and management of buildings and their technical facilities, in collaboration with the University of Genoa and its academic spin off IESolutions. Such platform is developed by IESolutions in collaboration with Softeco Sismat, an IT company based in Genoa. This paper presents the implementation of the monitoring system as a common cloud based web service on three facilities of the Humanitas group, namely the Cellini Clinic, the Gradenigo Hospital and an orthopaedic rehabilitation facility part of the ICH in Rozzano. It is also presented how a multi site, multi client platform provides users with cross data to help assess the consumption profiles of the hospital facilities, to define common Key Performance Indicators (KPI) and to identify best practices as a common ground between various buildings to optimize use of energy resources, minimize energy waste and reduce overall costs.
