The COVID-19 pandemic accelerated the adoption of security technologies and touchless solutions, according to the 2022 Health Care Trends Report from Allegion. Electronic access control plays a large role in hospital environments.
Repurposing video surveillance and artificial intelligence and analytics traditionally used for security initiatives within the healthcare space can increase positive patient interactions and bring additional value to your current electronic physical security solutions.
After months of social distancing, the coronavirus remains a serious public health challenge. As states across the country devise plans to reopen their local economies, government agencies and private healthcare providers are hungry for reliable data.
Hospitals are where people go to seek treatment, recover, and address critical injuries. It is the place where doctors, nurses, and other healthcare providers devote themselves to helping people who need medical attention. In addition to this critical focus, a hospital also has to protect against unauthorized access, theft of medications or sensitive patient information, and guard against workplace violence, which affects hospitals more than other industries. At the same time, they must maintain a level of accessibility and openness, which presents difficulties as it relates to security.
