An Outline of the Future of Security in Healthcare
Healthcare facilities across the U.S. face significant hurdles in ensuring the safety and security of patients, visitors and professional staff. As we’ve seen across the country, hospital facilities and campuses are not immune from acts of violence or crime — from the emergency room to parking lots. Likewise, hospitals need to be constantly vigil to protect staff members at their facilities, which are open 24/7.
Using robots in security frees up staff to focus on patient care and empowers security teams to cover more ground. Being able to see and hear in real time what is happening throughout a hospital campus helps them to prevent an incident from occurring. Robots are used in a variety of areas in the healthcare sector – and extending the technology to improve physical security is a natural progression for the industry. The future is now.
