For decision-makers of healthcare facilities, it’s no secret that it’s a challenge to provide a safe, accessible setting for patients, staff, and visitors. Governmental regulations, workplace violence, and generally stressful environments combine to form a multi-faceted obstacle to surmount.
Facility operators must cover their bases in essentials such as asset protection, cybersecurity risks, intrusion, vandalism, and theft protection. But in order to successfully differentiate themselves as a healthcare center, they must be innovative in their efforts to improve patient care as well.
What many in the industry have yet to realize is that the solution for both security interests and improved patient care is one and the same: Pelco’s complete solution helps increase patients, visitors and staff safety while improving hospital processes, operations, and security.
In today’s Security Insights article by Pelco, we’ll explore how Pelco’s end-to-end VMS solution proactively addresses numerous challenges healthcare facilities face in a reliable and scalable way.
Hospitals and other healthcare facilities face a multitude of complex challenges with operational logistics. The ceaseless stream of patients, guests, and staff leads to questions of balancing safety with operational efficiencies.
For instance, how do you allow staff to move freely throughout the hospital while ensuring potential security risks are successfully mitigated. How do you afford your personnel quick-access to medical records and EHRs while following HIPAA regulations and cybersecurity protocol?

We at Pelco are acutely aware of the diverse set of challenges that healthcare facilities face. And although we aren’t able to address every unique concern in a single article, our video surveillance cameras and video management solutions are designed to improve safety and increase operational efficiency in practical, real-world ways.
“We use the video for so many things. We’ve used cameras to prevent theft and vehicle break-ins. We’ve even used them to pinpoint patient incidents, which has helped clinical staff determine their treatment.” – Ron Coles, Director of University of Arizona Medical Center – South Campus Safety and Security Services
With a focus on regulatory compliance in symphony with centralized and remote access, you can set your security personnel up for success with a complete, real-time picture of the facility and grounds.
