At the recent RFS Healthcare Facilities Management congress in Bangkok, OCS Global Healthcare Director, Paul Morton, delivered a keynote address outlining the value of having a 'system of systems' for Infection Prevention and Control in health and care.
Paul explained how OCS can add value to Healthcare clients by providing safer services that are focussed on preventing adverse events and hospital acquired infections (also referred to as 'nosocomial').
By taking an holistic view, which considers not only the cleaning aspect of infection prevention and control but also covers the impact of wider factors such as facility design, construction, renovation and the ongoing hard facilities management of a healthcare facility, OCS can help to reduce risks and prevent harm through effective integration of services. The overall aim in any health and care setting is to create safe, quality environments for all patients, staff and visitors. This is central to the OCS Healthcare strategy.
The RFS event provided key insights to the Thai Healthcare market and presented some clear opportunities for OCS Healthcare. We value the opportunity to exchange ideas with our healthcare and FM industry colleagues and in taking part in debates around dynamics that are driving the agenda for change and securing growth for the sector.
