Securing environments is a grave concern for the Healthcare industry. Government regulations, stressful conditions, and workplace violence are challenges faced every day. It’s the Security Team’s responsibility to provide safe environments for patients, visitors, and staff as well as protect expensive equipment and technology. In addition, compliance requirements demand that Security Teams implement heightened security in particular areas.  What’s more, they must proactively respond to security issues.

Most well-designed security systems include detection, alarms, intercoms, security video, access control, visitor management, Security Guards, Police Officers, parking lots with barriers, and more.  After careful planning, installation, and testing of an appropriate security system, Security Teams must develop processes to mitigate risk and respond to incidents when they occur. This can be a mighty challenge in such a complex environment.

Most Healthcare Facilities do not have fully integrated security devices and applications. In fact, multiple technologies often operating in silos, make it difficult to understand the complete picture. Additionally, most systems are not set up to monitor the operating status of each device or application. This makes it impossible to detect when something is down, malfunctioning, or compromised. Security Teams requires tools that offer detection as well as 24/7 remote and instant access along with speedy dissemination of good and productive information.

This is why Healthcare Facilities rely on the Vunetrix SMART Dashboard. The Sensor Monitoring, Alerting, and Reporting Technology continuously scans the status, activity, and performance of every IP security device and application throughout the entire campus. Having a single-view SMART Dashboard allows Security Teams to see system health and status through a single-pane-of-glass. What’s more, when there is a problem or anomaly detected, Security Teams are alerted in real-time via email.
By automating device and application health checks and providing visibility through a central location, Healthcare Facilities can redeploy the guard force to other matters while maintaining a proactive approach to security management. In addition, risk mitigation and speedy time to resolution are achieved with unprecedented efficiency.
Undoubtedly, the Vunetrix SMART Dashboard gives Healthcare Executives peace of mind as they can count on proactive detection to security system issues and real-time alerts long before an incident occurs.
