The healthcare market is unique among verticals in the video surveillance market. Keeping healthcare facilities safe and secure for patients, visitors and employees is especially challenging given the size of a typical hospital and the range of security and life safety technologies in play.
Hospitals are open environments where patients, visitors and clinicians come and go largely without restrictions. There are a lot of doors and entrances, and hospitals in general aim for an open environment that reduces stress and helps patients and their families feel more at home. Hospitals are a combination of many different environments – some including restaurants, banks, dry cleaners, and other shops – and therefore reflect a broad spectrum of security challenges. It’s a busy environment that challenges security personnel to monitor threats. Video surveillance is a critical tool.
