Security strategies for healthcare
Workplace violence, stressful conditions, and government regulations pose serious challenges for the healthcare industry. To protect patients and staff and to help meet compliance requirements, healthcare facilities need to adopt a comprehensive approach to physical security that allows their personnel to proactively respond to security issues while also simplifying day-to-day tasks.
Secure your entire healthcare facility
Protect assets and people
Security is a key concern for hospitals and healthcare facilities. The dangerous working conditions faced by front-line workers can put them at risk of injury and lost time. You require a unified solution that can improve incident response, provide a safe environment for patients and staff, and protect expensive equipment and technology.
Safeguard medical dispensaries and labs
To comply with government regulations, healthcare facilities must implement heightened security on certain medicine dispensaries and drug cabinets. By using an advanced IP-based access control solution to restrict access to these cabinets, you can ensure that only authorized personnel handle powerful narcotics. In addition, you can run audit trail reports when regulatory bodies seek proof of compliance.
Keep digital files secure
As hospitals move to digital filing systems to track patient information and treatments, healthcare facilities need to develop effective strategies for protecting access to their data. By attaching access control readers to workstations, you can prevent unauthorized access to computers and sensitive information as nurses and doctors will be required to tap their badges at the readers to access patient files.
