Video security for healthcare

August 2015 Healthcare (Industry), CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

In the healthcare industry, patients and visitors have an important need for security, because concerns about health are already stressful enough. The psyche significantly influences the healing process. Everything has to fit together perfectly: the medical services, the care, the technology, and protection against direct and indirect health risks and even criminal acts.

Only the combination of technology, organisation and personnel, adapted to the local conditions, makes an effective security concept possible. The new Geutebrück video security system for the medical industry has been designed as a central part of a comprehensive security solution. With its open interfaces to all other security subsystems it provides key image information at the right time.

Applications range from the patient observation in the intensive care unit to access control. In this case, automatically or manually, it is possible to monitor just what needs to be seen preventively. Under certain circumstances, that can be a great deal.

Here, intelligent video analysis provides support, automatically detecting exactly what is required. If an alarm occurs, it is activated, the prehistory saved, the events played back in the live stream and the location/position displayed in the graphic map. The automatically generated information package makes it possible to clearly assess the situation and take targeted actions. Sometimes the topic is unpleasant, for instance when theft or worse is suspected.

It is not important to assess the situation and provide evidence. Geutebrück’s effective search algorithms quickly find the recorded incident. Time, date, event type, movement in the frame, fast-forward, rewind for all cameras or just one – the search filter operates with incomparable access speed. Clear evidence is provided in a split second.
