Our Security Solutions can give your Hospital’s Security Plan a Clean Bill of Health
Security teams that work in the healthcare sector are tasked with implementing a comprehensive security plan to safeguard staff, medical personnel, patients, visitors and vendors. Many hospital campuses are large and comprise many different areas – from emergency rooms to outpatient facilities, to operating rooms, infant nurseries, intensive care units, pharmaceutical storage areas, and more. Hospitals run on all cylinders 24/7/365, so controlling who comes and goes at all times calls for a sophisticated access control system.
Because of the vastly different functions performed in different areas of a hospital, varying levels of access credentialing must be considered. For example, access should only be granted to users who are authorized to be in vulnerable areas – such as infant nurseries, operating rooms, intensive care units, and so on.
Whether it be an integrated access control system or a component of a unified system, AC Technical will allow your security team to assign different levels of access at varying locations. We can specify solutions that enable this level of access control at separate locations while still being easily managed on a single platform.
Regardless of whether access control credentials rely on a proximity card or Fob, Mobile Credential or Biometric Technology, placing access control readers in specific locations for authorized users to gain entry enables easy access to all approved staff and visitors.
Considerations for access to the public should span everything from securing and monitoring the outdoor parking areas to every entrance and exit to and from and within the various floors and locations throughout the entire hospital.
Healthcare facilities continue to look to new ways to update and modernize their security systems. AC Technical Systems stays on the cutting edge of new technologies and can implement for your healthcare facility new solutions that are redefining access control capabilities. Among them are smartphone Bluetooth-enabled technologies that give users touchless access through secured doors, turnstiles and elevators. This alleviates the need for users to present an access card because their mobile phone can communicate directly with the access reader to authenticate their identity and automatically grant access. Employing mobile access technology also translates into cost reductions as it eliminates the time spent managing, replacing and revoking cards or fobs credentials. Biometrics access credentialing is also a credentialing technology worth considering. Facial recognition, and fingerprint / finger vein scanning are highly secure and allow for enhance convenience, as the user’s identity serves as their access credential.
We at AC Technical Systems continue to keep a pulse on maturing access control solutions and are here to help you leverage them to deliver the high level of security your healthcare facility requires. We can equip you with modernized access control solutions that meet and surpass your current security needs and will easily and affordably scale to meet your future security requirements.
