Nanjing Omeida Elevator Equipment Company is currently conducting a survey on the dispatch mode and usage of special elevators for operation in Jiangsu Province Hospital. I participated in this project during my internship in the company. Through interviews with the staff of the hospital’s technical department, elevator monitoring center personnel, and liftmans, as well as online questionnaires for the doctors about elevator usage, and integrating their feedback, I learned about the current operating procedures and limitations of elevators for surgery. The existing surgical elevator scheduling process in the hospital has problems such as low scheduling efficiency, long waiting time, cumbersome operation process, and inability to multi-thread response. To solve these problems, I conducted in-depth research on how to improve the existing process and simplify the operation process. Combined with the IoT smart elevator technology, I developed a more efficient and convenient remote reservation and dispatching plan for special elevators for operation. In order to cope with the special use scenario of the hospital where every second counts, a variety of emergency plans are included in the plan to ensure the normal operation of the elevator. The plan includes the interaction between the doctor’s mobile phone, the elevator manager operation interface of the monitoring center, and the large-screen interface outside the elevator, so as to maximize efficiency. At the same time, through the improvement of the monitoring center manager interface, the interactive interface is visually more intuitive for easier administrator-operation. The research and development of this system is also of practical significance for other hospitals with high-level wards, and since the existing hardware system will not be replaced, the cost of this solution is relatively low, so it is also an important reference for the future improvement of medical elevators.
