Modern healthcare and hospital facilities are required to cater to a large number of patients and stake holders and operate in fast paced 24/7 environment.
Facing serious risks such unauthorised entry and assaults against staff, Healthcare facilities require a security system that can ensure the safety of its patients and staff as well as providing the public access required to effectively deliver its services.
Integriti’s Access Control features ensure that only authorised stakeholders are permitted in restricted areas. Additionally, staff can have access to restricted areas only during time periods where they have a valid reason to enter secured spaces.
Access to valuable or dangerous assets such as Medical Equipment and Pharmecutical Drugs can be tightly controlled with full access reports available to record detailed information regarding the entry into these controlled areas.
Duress alarms can be raised from fixed or mobile duress buttons. When a duress alarm is raised, Guards, Staff and other stake holders can be immediately notified via Integriti's messaging application – Communicator which will broadcast text and emails.
CCTV integration can provide control rooms with immediate access to live and recorded video associated with the Duress Alarm displayed on a schematic map which shows the exact location of the incident..
Large Hospitals and healthcare facilities consist of dozens of intelligent building systems that need to integrate and operate harmoniously in order for the facility to function in a safe and efficient manner. Inner Range’s integriti platform supports full integration with a host of systems relevant to a healthcare environment such as Patient Management systems , Nurse Call systems , Management systems and Patient Management systems
Large Healthcare facilities require the services of hundreds of independent contractors who require access to the premises. In addition to its native functionality integriti also seamless integrates with dedicated Contractor Management Systems. These systems ensure contractors are provided temporary access credentials, and have complied with onsite Health and safety inductions. In addition, Contractor invoices can be reconciled with the actual time that contractors spend on site.
Reducing the time to acquire and interpret information, data analytic technology advances the intelligence of not only the security system, but also the building applications. Those systems use their own communication protocols, and Integriti acts as a data aggregator to normalize that data. By communicating with other systems, the pattern recognition in the analytics can predict how and when events may occur and trigger efficient use of other resources. If the analytic recognizes trends of attendance, it can help control building lighting resources. In the past, intrusion and access control systems were ignored as being an expense, but now they can help create the intelligent building.
Allowing the approved persons to be in the places that they need to complete their job is critical. But even more critical is preventing unapproved persons from accessing secure areas. This protects the people and assets of the organization and can also reduce other costs such as insurance. Integriti performs these functions and offers many additional links to other building and property applications.Integriti’s integration with other building systems such as HVAC, lighting, audio, and others provides better physical security and can also reduce the utility costs such as electrical and heating.
During an emergency event, people want to notify someone to come assist them in solving a problem. To get the message to a responding authority, duress alarms in Integriti can trigger a response from the appropriate team. These alarms may be a push button underneath the desk of a receptionist, or they can be a button on an emergency telephone in the middle of the university campus. Regardless of the location of the button, these systems trigger immediate notification of an event to first responders to assist the person in need. Integriti allows the control of alarms such that if it is not responded to in a determined time period, it can be escalated to a higher authority.
Notifying the correct authority of unwanted persons in an area or on a property in an appropriate timeframe helps prevent loss. Escalation of specific events to the correct responder allows them to make better decisions for resolving the issue.
Integriti provides up to 14 levels of response to various alarm scenarios. The events that occur when an intruder attempts to gain access to a controlled area may need to be handled in unique ways. By providing those standard operating procedures for each type of event, responders can mitigate risks and liability.
Access to an area is controlled by what you have (card or other physical identification), what you know (code) and who you are (biometric identifier). Integration with a video surveillance system allows the analytics to be integrated with the access control application to provide the Who You Are component of access control. This identification of a person by a camera, as well as the credential that the person holds or knows, can assist in assuring that the correct people are in the proper area. Integriti can even use just the triggered response of the camera analytic as the credential to allow a person entrance to a building or area.
Utilising the integrated Integriti platform, system operators are able to visually verify alarm events in real-time, using video feeds from an interconnected CCTV platform. Security Personnel are able to view, control and customize CCTV layouts all within one centrally managed system, while monitoring other access control or alarm events within the same graphical interface.
Making sure that the correct company is on your property and performing the necessary responsibilities proves daunting with the amount of work expectations that exist. Being able to verify that not only did the correct person arrive on property, but also that they spent the time that was charged, becomes a logistical challenge. Integriti can provide reports identifying when the contractor came to and left your facility as well as any areas they accessed. This allows the verification of invoices as well as job completion.
Real-Time Location Systems are commonly deployed in high security situations, and allow Security Operators to maintain accurate status and location of Security Personnel in real-time. The RTLS integration with Integriti allows for status updates and location monitoring via the same graphical interface as every other aspect of the Integriti system (including integrated CCTV, Intercoms, etc.). While increasing security and safety of staff, this integration improves situational awareness of Security Personnel in high security situations.
Knowing information immediately has become the expectation of society. With a smart phone, apps have become the new normal. In access control and intrusion systems, various alarms and events need to be conveyed to the correct responder as quickly as possible. Push notification of the events at a customer site assists them with management of the situation, whether it be urgent or just informational. The Integriti app allows notifications to be sent to specific personnel based upon the type of event.
Aintree University Hospital NHS provides care to 1.5 million residents across Merseyside and the Northwest of England. A £35 million programme sees the Foundation Trust’s urgent care and trauma unit transformed into a state-of-the-art facility, allowing the hospital to enhance the patient journey and provide hospital staff with the ability to offer the best care to the 80,000 patients who pass through the emergency department each year.
Ulster Hospital was built in 1962 to serve a population of just over 260,000. As the community grew, the hospital became increasingly overstretched to care for the needs of its expanding population. What was needed was a system coping with over 3,000 staff and consultants, being flexible and can be overridden in an emergency situation.
The development of additional hospital blocks increased capacity and enhanced healthcare services which resulted in the requirements for an integrated Access Control and Intruder Alarm solution.
