Hospitals and healthcare facilities provide around the clock care, and deal with large numbers of patients and visitors every day. Growing instances of unauthorized entry and physical assaults against staff, see management faced with the challenge of balancing public accessibility with the responsibility of providing staff and patients with a safe and secure environment.

Tight controls need to be imposed on restricted areas such as pharmacies, treatment rooms, and patient wards - visitor access needs to be confined to the designated hours and areas, sensitive patient data needs to be protected, healthcare regulations need to be met - all without compromising patient care.

Key features an ICT solution provides for healthcare facilities include:

Door Interlocking
Allows only a single door in a defined group to be open at one time.  Ideal to prevent dangerous things getting in or out of a hazardous area

Two Factor Authentication
What you have (card) and what you know (PIN) - prevents a lost or stolen credential from being used to gain unauthorized access

Advanced Scheduling
Intelligent time based control of access and energy management, automatically adjusts for daylight savings and holidays
