Security and IT departments have the same goal: creating and securing an efficient hospital that provides optimum care and safety—which is where Convergint steps in.

Convergint understands the challenges facing healthcare organizations today as they seek to maintain safe and secure environments for medical personnel. Whether it’s improving patient care and management, executing organizational policies and procedures, or meeting regulatory compliance requests, Convergint provides the integration and service needed to keep teams feel safe and secure. Facilities across the world have witnessed increased footfall traffic this year from both patients and staff members. Security needs to follow suit as the traffic increases, and response and reaction procedures must remain intact.

Convergint works with facilities to identify technology solutions using tools such as intelligent surveillance and audio analytics to develop internal communication strategies to prepare those on-site for better outcomes.

These integrations ensure patients’ and employees’ safety, allowing healthcare facilities to operate in the safest environment possible. In addition to passive protection, Convergint helps facilities identify ways to modernize their networks and leverage network video analytics for active protection, including identifying potential threats and reporting incidents in real-time to the proper personnel.
