Ensuring the safety of patients and staff, and protecting assets is vital in a healthcare environment, particularly in a large hospital. With an effective integrated security and access control system visitors can be tracked, staff and patients monitored, and entry to restricted areas controlled. Video analytics and people counting technology make it possible to observe behaviour, preventing unauthorised or illegal conduct or helping locate wandering patients.
High quality CCTV footage and modern event tracing technology can be indispensible in the event of an incident occurring. Furthermore, in an environment where compliance, due diligence, and an audit trail is of paramount importance, a security system like this can provide a fully verifiable record.
