NEW SECURITY CHALLENGES WITHIN HEALTHCARE

The ongoing changes within the healthcare sector has resulted in a markedly change of the way healthcare is demanded and delivered today. Investments in new University hospitals as well as hospitals being being built as campuses with several buildings that are well-connected and interdependent in contrast to the isolated facilities that used to be common.

There is a shift from hospitals being a locally managed service within a limited community towards becoming a global destination with patients travelling from all over the world in order to get a special treatment. These changes in the healthcare environment create new challenges within healthcare security.

PROTECT YOUR PATIENTS, STAFF AND VISITORS

Healthcare professionals are common targets of violent behavior and health care professions in general are becoming more violent places in which to work.  A reliable integrated security solution should therefore have an intuitive high level interface that will ensure that alarms generated from a transmitter (such as panic buttons) are immediately communicated.  The source of the alarm should be able to get identified through graphical drawings or maps or by using video verification. This will allow the operator to reset the device which initiated the alarm as well as perform a wide variety of other remote functions in a proactive manner in order to remain a high level of security. The staff and patients of the healthcare facility will in turn feel safe knowing that immediate actions will be taken in case of an event.

Our integrated security solution is designed to provide easy management of alarm, acces control, fire, intercom and video systems that suit both small and big healthcare facilities. This makes our solution a perfect fit for hospitals with high demand on flexibility and ease of use.

PACOM UNISON AT THE CORE

Our open, integrated security management platform PACOM Unison cleverly acts as a “bridge” between the security system and other subsystems.  When an alarm is triggered, the Unison software will indicate where the alarm originated. Alarms can be displayed on interactive floor plans and audible signals can be generated at the workstation to uniquely identify the type of alarm via multi-media. It is possible for the operator to reset the device which initiated the alarm as well as perform a wide variety of other remote functions. The user friendly functions of the system, efficient bulk programming and the powerful overview makes administration easy and saves time.

The graphical user interface, including dynamic display of alarm points, considerably simplifies management. By taking advantage of the intelligent linking function in Unison users can easily link an object in the system with a point on the map.
