Keep patients and staff safe while providing an engaging and comfortable environment
Integrating CCTV and access control keeps patient and administrative areas secure, while video intercoms provide visuals to security personnel at entrances to buildings or area entrances. Surveillance in parking lots and outside of buildings can also be incorporated into call-help alarms using video intercoms. This ensures not only a high level of safety and policy enforcement for patients, employees, visitors, and facilities; but also an ability for an immediate and informed response in an emergency.
SchedulingScheduling software integrated with access control ensures that only scheduled and approved employees are allowed to "badge in" before their shift and confirm they are no longer on premises by "badging out", even with variable shifts and schedules. Access control is not limited to building doors, but also parking lots and garages, allowing staff to bypass paid parking requirements or reserving specific areas for different user profiles. Most important is the ability to perform an audit trail integrated with CCTV footage in order to manage risk and enforce policy compliance.
Video SurveillanceRemote and unmanned areas of the facility can be monitored using both video surveillance and intrusion detection, incorporating motion sensors, door position switches, and glass break or noise sensors. Areas containing sensitive machinery can be monitored to ensure that they are operating within system limits for factors such as moisture, temperature, and particulate. Integration with the same security platform will alert staff if these environmental conditions are not met or reach dangerous levels. Integration with access control and intrusion allows the system to send notifications both on-site and remotely.
Wireless CommunicationsMany older facilities cannot easily accommodate the installation of the physical infrastructure such as fiber cabling. Wireless point-to-point or point-to-multipoint systems provide communication over a large area without the need for costly renovations. Wireless technology can be used to extend the perimeter of CCTV and Access Control coverage deployments further into areas where cabling or fiber is not available. The high standards necessary for securing data within hospital systems are matched by the standards used by Shanix.
Digital SignageIn patient waiting and recovery areas, digital signage is supplied with a single unified feed or multiple specialized feeds for informational purposes. In treatment areas, video conferencing software for telemedicine in both routine and emergency care can be coordinated with in-ceiling microphones, cameras, and digital displays. Paging systems throughout campuses alert doctors and nurses to critical situations.
