The evolution of building automation systems for hospitals comes as the Internet of Things (IoT) and other technologies have lowered the costs of automation and are opening up new opportunities for creating safe, healthy, and efficient environments.
Gone are the days when building automation meant simple control over heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. Today, building systems of all types are being integrated with smart sensors, advanced analytics, centralized control systems, and wireless IP network connectivity, expanding the possibilities of building management in healthcare. While this can have a significant impact on operational costs, it can also do something even more valuable: it can help people.
Access Control System
To manage the risks that hospitals face and to ensure a comprehensively protected environment for patients and staff, security directors must implement integrated and progressive security solutions. And one of the most important components of any system that's deployed is access control technology. Using an access control solution allows hospital security authorities to divide the facility's extensive area into controllable, role-based zones that are interconnected through a single platform. Access control covers not just main entrance doors, but also internal entrances and exits based on location and access level, which means that all methods of entering, exiting, or moving around the facility can be actively monitored.
Benefits of Access Control in Healthcare
Hospitals demand a security system that can handle the heavy traffic generated each day without interfering with critical activities. A traditional key-based system won’t be able to manage this level of activity. However, using a more highly advanced solution, like electronic access control, can provide numerous benefits.

IP Video Surveillance System / CCTV
In hospitals and healthcare facilities, video surveillance is an effective tool not only for increasing security but also for controlling costs. Surveillance cameras can help protect hospital staff and patients from security breaches, while also providing valuable video evidence that can be used to increase productivity and prevent allegations of dishonesty. IP video technology provides greater flexibility for hospital video surveillance installations, along with features such as remote video surveillance and more efficient storage capabilities
Few Benefits Of Hospital Video Surveillance
- INCREASE OVERALL SECURITY AND SAFETY:Security cameras strategically installed around a hospital helps in the prevention of crimes and break-ins, while also allowing operators to keep an eye out for troubled patients and monitor for unauthorized visitors in restricted areas.
- PREVENT DISHONEST CLAIMS: In cases when patients or visitors falsely claim to have been injured on hospital property, video evidence from the facility’s security cameras can disprove such claims, saving the hospital from expensive unwarranted insurance claims.
- IMPROVE WORKER PRODUCTIVITY: The presence of surveillance cameras on the sites can improve communication between hospital departments or buildings, allowing for increased productivity.
- VISUAL EVIDENCE FOR INVESTIGATIONS: Surveillance cameras can provide important video evidence for criminal investigations and other specific events in or around medical facilities.
- REMOTE VIDEO MONITORING: IP surveillance allows hospital personnel to remotely view security camera footage from any PC with a network connection. All the camera views are accessible online over the Internet, allowing multiple sites to communicate over the same network.
- CONTINUOUS REAL-TIME MONITORING: IP surveillance allows authorized hospital employees to continuously monitor critical areas in real time from their personal computers.

Digital Signage Display System
Healthcare providers are frequently confronted with critical, and often life-threatening, problems. Hospitals and clinics must be easily accessible and suitable for every visitor or patient, no matter their age or condition. Not surprisingly, these facilities serve a continuous flow of visitors, most of whom are unfamiliar with their surroundings. To top it all off, Throughout the day, it's important to keep the staff, visitors, and patients informed, inspired, and delighted. Healthcare providers must ensure everyone's health and well-being. The larger the site, the more complex the challenge. It's an important role, and one that is being increasingly fulfilled by digital signage.
Emergency Exit Signages
In a hospital environment, the right safety equipment can make the difference between an effective exit and a disaster. A dark hallway or a non-functional exit sign might prevent an entire floor from finding its way out of a burning building or other sorts of emergency scenario. Even with lighting and other safety measures, the combination of several floors and medical equipment is risky. Hospital safety exit signs guide visitors, employees, and patients to the nearest exit point. If these things are placed in the proper areas and contain effective products, an evacuation will take place quickly and with fewer injuries.

IP-PBX System With Call Center Software
In the modern medical era with robot surgeries, drones, and telemedicine, it's easy to neglect simple communication platforms like your phone system. However, your phone system is still an important way for patients and doctors to connect. If your organization still uses a traditional phone system, it's time to learn about the benefits of voice over Internet protocol (VoIP). VoIP, which transmits calls over the Internet rather than traditional phone lines, is rapidly changing the way healthcare organizations across the country communicate with their doctors, patients and staff.
Benefits of VoIP in Hospitals
A VoIP phone solution helps to provide best possible healthcare to patients by providing effective and efficient teamwork among staff as well as communications between patients and doctors.
Doctors can work with other doctors remotely using video conferencing. As a result, doctors can establish links or networks that provide them with guidance and assistance.
Hospital administrators can transfer calls to a specific department or medical personnel to answer inquiries or help in patient care during after-hours and emergencies using call management features such as hunt groups, find me/follow me, call forwarding, and call conferencing (including video conferencing). They can also talk to hospital employees or other health-care professionals who work in both the hospital and the office.
VoIP phone systems help doctors and medical staff members communicate and cooperate more effectively in order to improve operational procedures and provide top-quality patient care.

Nurse Call System
Patients' care is undoubtedly the main aim of all hospitals and nursing homes. Consequently, each patient requires one dedicated line of communication so that he or she may draw the attention of a nurse from his or her bed whenever needed. Patients seek good doctors, high-quality medical equipment, and timely care. Hence, it is essential to build up a secure method for patients to communicate with nurses and doctors and request their help. Our Nurse Call System is designed with the importance of superior nursing in today's society in mind, and it provides priority. Installing our NCS in the hospital allows for more efficient management of nursing staff.
Nursing care operations may be greatly reduced thanks to the advanced capabilities of the Nurse calling system. This idea already starts with basic things like separate voice communication between patient and nurse, which saves the nurse unnecessary walking around and hence a lot of time.
But the options are endless. For example, in the future, vital signs monitoring can be connected, preventing the need for a nurse to enter the room. The vital signs monitoring automatically raise an alarm if a critical value is exceeded.
The new technology also simplifies documentation and billing. By integrating them to Clinic Information Systems, many documentation procedures are simplified or automated. Presence and calls are automatically recorded and documented, making it much easier to pay health insurance funds and insurance companies.
