WebCTRL® System Enables First of its Kind Dashboard for Critical Healthcare Facilities
Kennesaw, Ga., Dec. 4, 2019 - Automated Logic Corporation is collaborating with the
non-profit Powered for Patients to launch a first of its kind dashboard that addresses the
technology challenges associated with providing real-time or near real-time status reports
for emergency power supply systems in healthcare facilities. The dashboard harnesses the
power of the WebCTRL® building automation system and allows government officials and
utilities to quickly see the status of unfolding threats to emergency power. With this near
real time information, government officials and utilities can expedite their response to
assist a facility before patient safety is compromised. Automated Logic, a leading provider
of innovative building-management solutions, is a part of Carrier, a leading global provider
of innovative heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC), refrigeration, fire,
security and building automation technologies.
Formed in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, Powered for Patients works closely with public
health leaders, emergency managers, utilities, healthcare facility managers and power
generation industry leaders to help safeguard backup power and expedite power restoration
for critical healthcare facilities. Automated Logic collaborated with Powered for Patients
on the project funded by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to use WebCTRL to provide
government officials and utilities the first-ever automated emergency power status reports
from critical healthcare facilities dealing with extended power outages.
The project produced the Power P.I.O.N.E.E.R. (Power Information Needed to Expedite
Emergency Response) Dashboard prototype, which provides government officials and utilities
with a quick-glance view of unfolding threats to emergency power, as well as updates on the
status of response activities. The dashboard synthesizes status reports from the WebCTRL
system’s fault detection and diagnostic (FDD) capabilities, along with similar data streams
from other technology providers, into a single data stream to populate the online dashboard
with a red, yellow or green threat level indicator.
The built-in FDD capabilities of the WebCTRL system also allow hospital building operators
to identify and respond to issues before they happen. Automated analytic tools uncover
potential problems in HVAC and electrical equipment, enabling corrective action before
system performance is compromised to ensure patient safety during a crisis such as a
hurricane or other detrimental weather event.
Automated Logic’s WebCTRL system earned the designation of “Certified Power P.I.O.N.E.E.R.
Provider” based on testing of Automated Logic’s Application Program Interface (API) by
Powered for Patients. The tests verified the ability of the WebCTRL system to automatically
share status reports on the condition of client emergency power systems with the Power
P.I.O.N.E.E.R. Dashboard prototype.
Given Carrier’s role as a leading HVAC manufacturer, Automated Logic is now working with
Powered for Patients to expand the Power P.I.O.N.E.E.R. Dashboard’s capability to include
real time or near real-time HVAC status reporting.
“Powered for Patients is grateful to Automated Logic and Carrier for their collaboration with
Powered for Patients and other industry leaders to help create the Power P.I.O.N.E.E.R.
Dashboard prototype,” said Powered for Patients Founder Eric Cote. “We’re excited to build
on our collaboration to add HVAC and ambient temperature reporting capabilities to the
dashboard. This achievement will significantly expand the Power P.I.O.N.E.E.R. Dashboard’s
ability to safeguard patients during extended power outages.”
