Dassault Systèmes and Aden Group, one of Asia’s largest integrated facility management companies, announced their intent to collaborate on the development of a turnkey, ready-to-use infectious disease hospital solution, Akila Care, that could be quickly deployed and easily maintained in countries severely impacted by COVID-19 and urgently in need of high quality medical facilities. This new initiative comes in light of the successful world premiere Wuhan hospital experience set up in a few days.
The two companies are working together to develop new hospital engineering, construction and operations processes by leveraging Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform and Aden Group’s Akila Care smart and connected hospital concept. The solution relies on a virtual collaborative environment for the design, simulation and development of hospitals that can be built and operational within 100 days and remain operational for many years, as well as for optimizing their operations and maintenance throughout their entire lifecycle. As part of the collaboration, the two companies plan to assemble a consortium of companies specialized in medical equipment, engineering and construction to offer the solution to countries needing it most.
Once developed, the hospital solution would provide a virtual collaborative environment in which employees and suppliers are invited to use a virtual twin of a hospital to optimize space planning, module design, negative pressure isolation rooms and other features, simulate manufacturing and equipment, and train for its construction. After the hospital is built, the solution will be used for digital asset management by connecting the facility with state-of-the art medical equipment to monitor digitalized hygiene procedures and hospital floor robots.
