Project: Build a system to manage and track the environmental conditions that limit the shelf life of cancer drugs in the hospital's internal pharmacy. The goal: Prevent premature expiration of key drugs. Memorial Sloan-Kettering's networked appliances constantly monitor conditions in the pharmaceutical storage facility and report to a manned command center using existing infrastructure. The devices monitor the temperature and humidity and report to the command center if ideal ranges are breached. From there, a hospital employee will remedy the problem.
Benefits: Around-the-clock monitoring of factors that affect the safe usage of costly drugs.
