CCP’s IoT technology builds healthcare momentum across Australia

CCP’s IoT technology builds healthcare momentum across Australia

With pressure to reduce costs and increasing demand on resources, the healthcare sector continues to embrace innovative technology to drive efficiency and improve productivity. The Mater Hospital in North Sydney is the latest healthcare facility to install CCP’s critical control point monitoring solution to transform its food service operations with IoT technology.

Part of St. Vincent’s Health Australia, the Mater Hospital is one of Australia’s leading private not-for-profit healthcare facilities. In hospitals, food safety is intrinsically linked to patient safety, where people are more vulnerable to microbiological and nutritional risks. With food safety and food quality front of mind, the Mater Hospital’s decision to automate refrigeration temperature monitoring mitigates risk.

Michael White, Chief Executive Officer of CCP said,

“Based on data we’ve captured, 4.9% of refrigerated coolers and freezers in businesses will suffer a complete failure each year. If something goes wrong with a hospital’s fridge, it causes enormous business disruption and can jeopardise patient safety. Automated, continuous monitoring of refrigeration using modern Internet of Things (IoT) technology is a far better and more cost-effective approach for the health industry than out-of-date data loggers and error-prone manual checks.”

Global health supply chains contain hundreds of millions of critical control points, where checks (e.g. storage temperature for food, vaccines and blood products) are routinely performed. Manual monitoring of control points, paper trails and information silos presents challenges for governance, risk and compliance. Secure automated data curation and exchange technologies present a transformational opportunity for healthcare businesses, delivering significant value to their operations.

Mr White said,

“While strengthening regulatory compliance remains a key driver for adoption, customers are using our solution to yield significant energy savings, reduce waste and support preventive maintenance programs. By harnessing the convergence of Cloud computing, IoT with edge-computing, big data analytics, Blockchain, machine learning and artificial intelligence, CCP is delivering commercial off-the-shelf and bespoke solutions to revolutionise supply chains.”

CCP is establishing a foothold in healthcare digital transformation. The company’s critical control point monitoring solution is currently used in NSW hospitals, ACT Health’s vaccine storage facilities and various aged care settings. In addition, CCP is contracted by a private healthcare technology provider to lead the development of a next generation operating room management system, to deliver major efficiency and  improved patient safety outcomes in hospitals around the world.

According to McKinsey & Company[1], services and technology have become the fastest-growing profit pool in the healthcare industry over the past five years, a trend driven by the significant value creation potential of technology-based and technology-enabled innovations.

CCP installed at the Lyceum Club

CCP installed at the Lyceum Club

Melbourne’s Lyceum Club is steeped in history having been established in 1912. The club focuses on providing a sophisticated environment for its members, which includes an impressive dining experience.

The Club has installed the CCP solution across its food service operation to keep a watchful eye over fridge temperatures 24/7. By implementing low-cost automated IoT (Internet of Things) technology, business risk is reduced.

Michael White, Chief Executive Officer of CCP said,

“We’re seeing an increasing number of clubs adopt CCP as venues seek to enhance food service operations. With CCP installed, opportunities emerge to reduce costs, optimise resources and strengthen food safety.”

In the food services industry, food safety is a non-negotiable requirement. From the smallest café to the largest catering service, continuous temperature monitoring with immediate notification of breaches is critical to ensuring food safety, food quality and adequate shelf-life.

Reliance on manually checking and recording of refrigeration temperatures is time consuming prone to errors, and doesn’t help if a refrigeration unit fails after hours.

CCP Smart Tags continuously sample and record critical control points (such as temperature and humidity) and transmit this data to a secure cloud-based platform where it is analysed and transformed into business intelligence. If temperature tolerances are breached, alert notifications are sent instantly via SMS/email. Dashboards and reports are available via web and mobile applications 24/7.

CCP installed at Bankstown Sport Club

CCP installed at Bankstown Sport Club

Bankstown Sports Club is at the forefront of a highly competitive hospitality environment. With over 65,000 members, affiliations with 40 sports clubs and over 500 employees, the club has grown and developed to become one of the most contemporary clubs in New South Wales (NSW). Patrons enjoy affordable, high-quality and diverse dining experiences, which is amplified by an onsite microbrewery.

The club has installed CCP to support its food and beverage operations, where refrigeration is mission critical.

Michael White, Chief Executive Officer of CCP said, “There are more than 1,300 registered clubs in New South Wales. At every club there is an increasing focus on using food and beverage to attract and retain customers. That means refrigeration systems are more mission critical than ever before and food safety is a very high priority. We offer an affordable solution to reduce the business risks associated with food safety and refrigeration failure. We delighted that Bankstown Sports, one of Sydney’s top 10 registered clubs, has installed CCP.”

The CCP installation at Bankstown Sports Club is complex. With food service, kitchen and beverage operations over several levels and a substantial basement environment, implementing wireless Internet of Things (IoT) solutions is challenging.

Mr White said, “We are monitoring over 110 locations at Bankstown Sports, which includes fridges, freezers, cool-rooms and glycol tanks. The implementation uses our new Sigfox LPWAN smart tags which are operating in hostile environments.”

Implementing automated temperature monitoring takes the guesswork and risk out of record keeping, ensures records are kept for food safety compliance, and provides the opportunity to optimise refrigeration performance.

Web and mobile dashboards provide easy access to business intelligence and task management.

Bankstown Sports Club joins Mingara Recreation Club in a growing list of registered clubs using CCP.

Paul Barnett, Non-Executive Director at ClubsNSW Ltd and Chief Executive Officer of Mingara Recreation Club said, “The technology has been fantastic for us and has saved over 10k already in the first six months, through not losing stock when refrigerators have broken down.”

CCP offers a simple low-cost way for food service businesses to automate refrigeration temperature record-keeping; and with our wireless sensors installed in fridges, staff are immediately alerted by email/SMS if temperature tolerances are breached.

CCP secures Mendakota’s 19th hole

CCP secures Mendakota’s 19th hole

The Mendakota Country Club in Minnesota is steeped in history and has evolved into one of the finest private clubs in the Twin Cities area. Located where the Minnesota and Mississippi Rivers meet, the impressive club house features panoramic views over the golf course, which makes it the perfect setting for fine dining, wedding ceremonies and receptions, social events and business meetings.

For many devotees, golf is more than just a sport: it’s a social occasion. Increasingly, the trend is for golf clubs to offer sophisticated hospitality. In a 2017-2018 private club trends report, the CMAA noted that national surveys continue to show that club dining operations represent the most popular amenity offered by clubs.

Mendakota Country Club is open year-round, and dining operations are under the watchful eye of Executive Chef, Michael Harper. With food safety a key priority in food service, Mr Harper must ensure his operations run smoothly when he is not on-site. This led to CCP being engaged to provide 24/7 wireless automated temperature monitoring at Club premises, rather than continuing with traditional paper-based manual checking methods, which can be unreliable.

Mr Chicoine, CCP Network North America’s President, commented that:

“Automated continuous temperature monitoring of refrigeration is far more reliable than manual checks. In using CCP’s low-cost Internet of Things (IoT) technology, Mendakota has immediately reduced its business risk”.
